What is a Premium or Discount? A premium or discount to the NAV occurs when the market price of an ETF on the exchange rises above or falls below its NAV. If the market price is higher than the NAV, the ETF is said to be trading at a “premium”. If the price is lower, it is trading at a “discount”.

Premiums. A discount is the opposite of a premium. When a bond is sold for more than the par value, it sells at a premium. Conversely to a discount, a premium occurs when the bond has a higher interest rate than the market interest rate (or a better company history).
