Google spreadsheet portfolio tracker for stocks and mutual funds

Published: December 26, 2017 at 9:08 am

Download a free google spreadsheet portfolio tracker for stocks, mutual funds and fixed deposits. Use it to store important account nos for quick reference and track the progress of your financial goals. Get daily or periodic email alerts on your portfolio growth. I am so proud to state that this spreadsheet has been entirely developed by friends.

One of the key advantages of this sheet is that a same stock or fund can be mapped to multiple goals. The asset allocation of each goal is tabulated and can be compared to the desired allocation. This makes rebalancing easy.

The first version created by Guhan Ramanan. Guhan developed his sheet without focussing on returns and daily email alerts. His thinking is that the user should focus on the current value of the corpus and what percentage of the target corpus has been achieved. I concur.

For the second version, Amol Wable added return calculated (Xirr) with a fantastic use of spreadsheet array functions. He also set up email trigger alerts. Pranav Date has added as asset allocation graph to the above spreadsheet.

Muthu Krishnan (who has been responsible for all DIY investor meets at Bangalore) then added goal planning features to this sheet. He also added a data sheet where we can enter all important information (Pan card, Aadhaar card, insurance policies etc) and this can be easily shared with the spouse.

Now in version 4, thanks to detailed feedback from Roshan Dawrani and S. Vivekanandan, Muthu has made multiple changes (see list below)

Google spreadsheet portfolio tracker: Fixed deposits

Don’t worry about the #Num! values. That is because there are no corresponding deposits. You are welcome to correct it!

Google spreadsheet portfolio tracker: symbols

For stocks or indices, the corresponding Google finance symbol must be entered. For example NSE: Nifty for Nifty price. NSE:TCS for TCS and so on. You can get this from google finance.

For mutual funds, you can either enter the AMFI code (you can search for this in the current NAV sheet) or the Google finance symbol. Suggest you use the AMFI code.
