Google spreadsheet portfolio tracker for stocks and mutual funds

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)

  1. Just saw the title and could not resist commenting – The idea of Centralized Tracker for all Asset Classes’ itself looks much attractive! Need to explore more how it can be used. Thanks.

  2. 1. Can we easily copy, paste from v3?
    2. Why has “sell” tab been removed? I could track my “sell” too in v3 though it’d been easier to enter “sell” in MF investment/stock section

  3. Once the trigger is added, it is asking to grant permissions.

    Can you please advise on what should be ideally used.
    Authorization Required. NAV from AMFI needs your permission to access data on Google. Once I click review permissions and click advanced. The following 4 options are presented.

    NAV from AMFI wants to
    1) View and Manage your spreadsheets in Google Drive (default selected)
    2) Allow this script to run when you are not present
    3) Send email as you
    4) Connect to and external service

    Has an Allow and Cancel button.

  4. Hi Prof,

    Awesome as always. I need help.

    I am using older version of portfolio manager which is now not updating the MF NAV’s. However same is working in your new version. I have personalised the workbook to suit my requirements with tons of data in it.

    Is it possible to guide on how to make MF NAV update like before.


    1. Will reproduce the reply you received for the benefit of others. Thanks to Roshan for this.
      Go to Tools – Script Editor. In the function get_csv_(), change “” to “” and save and re-run the “update NAV”.

      AMFI shifted their NAV data sharing to a new URL recently.

  5. Great work team ! I have a query – within the financial year if I have brought and sold a stock, how do I enter them on the latest sheet and know my overall CAGR for my stock portfolio ?

  6. Dear Prof.

    Two questions:
    1. How do I track selling of MF units. Just entering negative units seemed to work. Wanted to check if that is the way to go.
    2. I understand you are against combining insurance and investment. I am completely for it. However, the hard reality is I have some insurance policies (endowment). Can we include them also in this sheet?

    1. You need to change the script as below
      Go to Tools – Script Editor. In the function get_csv_(), change “” to “” and save and re-run the “update NAV”.

  7. Hi Sir,

    How to track the PF and RD? If I enter my PF amount in fixed ‘Fixed income’ sheet it is showing the current value as negative. And also not sure how to enter the RD as well.

    PF 3/31/2017 10800 7.80% 1/1/2044 Monthly -₹145 12

  8. Dear Pattu,

    Kudos to you and the team behind this(Muttu).

    I want to know – what is the use of Current_NAV sheet?
    You have explained –
    1. This gets the latest NAV from AMFI. – How?
    2. You can search for the AMFI code of your funds here – This is not an exhaustive list to search for, we can google that, right?

    Kindly let me know if i’m misunderstanding/ missing anything

  9. Hi Pattu,
    Your stuffs are really cool.

    wouldn’t it be great if you add Loans (Home loan, Auto, personal), other Debts to your sheets so that one can know their networth and where they stand in terms of the finances.


  10. Is it possible to track daily changes in mutual fund NAVs to check change from yesterday to today?
    I don’t want lot of historical data but just change from day prior..
    Let me know if this is possible.

  11. In the MF investment sheet, CAGR of each investment is calculated against an individual lump sum. For SIPs, individual entries for each month would be required, which will be quite cumbersome, considering long term investment scenarios. Right? Any plan to solve for this?

  12. Trying to put in MF investments in v4 but MF investment sheet is not able to pull up NAV data after MF name is changed..Tried putting Names from the AMFI list but still not accepting..i am how it is going to be put in that sheet.
    Also another query, what is the date menat her ein this sheet for…is it the first invesment or last investment.
    Seems like a nic etool but kindly help me use it.
    Thanks and regards

The version I have downloaded does not seem to update he MF NAV from the url . I find this sheet very useful. It would be nice if you could share or directed me to the updated sheet.

  15. Sir,
    I am unable to download historical NAV of mutual funds from Google Finance. The codes as well as the symbols are not working for historical NAV. They work only for current NAV.
    Please help.
