Mutual Fund Screener Updates

There are two types of mutual fund screeners available at freefincal. Here are some updates along with a navigation guide. Both screeners capture data from Value Research.

  1. Mutual Fund Screener based on lump sum returns (version 4.0)
  2. Mutual Fund Screener based on SIP returns (Version 1.1.0)

The main reason behind this post is that there is a mistake in the way one of the shortlisting is done. It may not change results by much, but it is a mistake nonetheless.
