The BVI method

The calculation of the BVI performance statistics follows the time-weighted method customary for funds. The BVI method uses public investment fund prices and thus takes into account all explicit and implicit fund costs. In the case of savings plans, issue subscription fees are also taken into account. Distributions are assumed to be reinvested in new investment fund units. This makes distributing and accumulating funds comparable.
