A mutual fund portfolio growth visualiser is now available as an add-on module for our Google sheet-based mutual fund and stock investment tracker.

Key features of the portfolio growth visualiser module

  • Requires either the mutual fund or mutual fund + stock investment tracker. (see features below)
  • This is an add-on module to the existing tracker sheet. If you already have our tracker, you can get this straight away. If you have not yet got our tracker,  please see its features and demo videos below, and then you can get the add-on module.
  • Currently, the portfolio visualiser is only for mutual fund portfolios and not for stock portfolios.
  • Automatically plots the growth of equity and debt mutual funds (asset-wise or total portfolio) from the day you started investing in them* via Google sheet scripts (macros). *On or after April 3rd 2006.
  • There is no need to run the macros manually. Easy set-up instructions are included for immediate plotting and weekly updates.
  • All mutual fund transactions – of current funds and redeemed funds – can be accounted for while plotting the portfolio growth.
  • You can add any benchmark data for comparison. A benchmark portfolio is created assuming you purchased or redeemed the same amounts on the same dates as you did in your MF portfolio.
  • The addition and updating of benchmark data are manual, but the comparison is automatic without requiring any script. This is one up on our earlier method: How to benchmark your mutual fund portfolio.
  • The add-on module is priced at Rs. 200 only (one-time purchase). Both existing users of the Google sheets tracker and new users can purchase this anytime.
  •  Remember that the portfolio visualiser is a heavy sheet that needs to be inserted into your existing tracker file. While using it, please do not keep too many browser tabs open.
  • Clear video instructions for implementation are given below.
