Below is an example of an Account Value summary.
The Account Value is calculated by adjusting the beginning-of-period Account Value to determine the current Account Value. Adjustments affecting the Account Value include e.g. Realised P/L, Cash Transfers etc. The Account Value summary displays the previous day's end-of-day Account Value and not the current Account Value.
