Freefincal Mutual Fund Screener with SIP Returns

The freefincal mutual fund screener on Google Sheets is now available with 1,3,5,10,15 and 20-year SIP returns data from Value Research.

This is an independent screener which complements the previously published Freefincal Mutual Fund Screener- Google Sheets Edition (call this SCR1) which is based on 12-year annual returns and 1,2,3...12 year CAGRs.

So SCR1 is based on lump sum returns and the present screener (SCR2) is based on SIP returns.

Here are a few screenshots

How does the screener work?

Ramesh Vijayaraghavan made some modifications to simplify usage. Download it from here:

  • Make a copy
  • Please wait until all calculations are done. The default category is "Large cap" and default reference rank is '15'.
  • Go to screener sheet and play with shortlisting. If you are not familiar with data sorting, you can watch this video - after first 4 minutes. Note: this video is only a tutorial for using the screening feature and is based on the lump sum screener sheet.

Old Version

Three screens are available:

  1. Consistency in 1,3,5,10,15 and 20-year SIP returns falling in the top 15 (can be varied) for each duration.
  2. Consistency in 1,3,5,10,15 and 20-year SIP returns falling above respective category average.

They can be used together or individually to create a shortlist.

    Hi, I am still awaiting your valuable reply. I wish to know how the codes/program lines were obtained in the note pad file shown in your video.

    Step-1: Make a copy
    Step-2: Go to Tools --> Script Editor
    Step-3: Delete the 3 lined code which comes on screen
    Step-4: Open notepad file and copy paste the codes from this notepad into the screen of Step-3 above.

    Here, Step-4 is where I am stuck. Pls do the needful.

    Thanks & Best Regards,

      Use the link provided by Ramesh Vijayaraghavan in the post. That does not need the script editor. Sorry for the late response.

    Also, I believe the version "Freefincal Mutual Fund SIP Returns Screener 1.0.0" is the latest one.

    Pls excuse me if I have missed any earlier information of yours.

    Sir, very good tool. I have a suggestion you can also add a column expense ratio if it is feasible, which will be useful to select a fund in the short list which is having lesser expense ratio. Also I tried "Show only funds with 3 years of return" but it does not show direct plans of mutual fund.
