Sovereign Gold Bonds Tracker on Google Sheets

After repeated requests from users of our mutual fund and stock tracker, the freefincal team is happy to present a Sovereign Gold Bonds Tracker on Google Sheets. It can be used to track up to 30 SGB issues.

Features: The sheet can accommodate one additional purchase and one sale per bond issue. The sheet considers Sov Gold bonds’ purchase and current prices and computes the capital gain. The interest received is treated like a stock dividend. The total gain is the sum of the capital gain and the interest gain.

The sheet then computes the investment-weighted time average (used in case of additional purchases after issue) and gives the compounded annualized growth rate or the annualized return. This is an excellent alternative to the XIRR.

Screenshots: These are screenshots of the tool. Users can copy column C to the right to enter additional bond purchases.

How to get the sheet: The sheet is free but available only to those who purchase the freefincal mutual fund (and stock) portfolio tracker on Google Sheets. Users also get this sheet for free: A new tool to compare five MF portfolios & find overlapping stocks

Existing users have already been sent a copy of the Sov Gold Bonds Tracker for beta testing. All the feedback received has been incorporated. So, we request such users make a fresh copy using the same link. If you are a user of the freefincal portfolio tracker and have not received the link, please get in touch with us by email.

Features of the freefincal mutual fund and stock portfolio tracker

  1. A private, all-in-one-place tracker that is independent of our computers.
  2. Fast and functionally superior to our previous Excel-based trackers.
  3. It is completely open-source with no hidden formulae. It can be customized at will.
  4. Easy to share with our life partners as part of our continuity kits. See: How to help our life partner manage money in our absence.
  5. It is updated with the current NAV on opening the sheet.
  6. New SIP transactions will be automatically available (see screenshots and instructions below). If you have multiple SIPs, this sheet can be duplicated to maintain separate records.
  7. Total equity and debt fund value can be plotted automatically on a daily/weekly/monthly basis (no need to keep the sheet browser tab open!)
  8. Overall portfolio annualized return (equity + debt), overall equity and debt annualized returns available.
  9. A basic goal-analysis sheet for ballpark estimation of financial goal progress. The current investment value is auto-updated for revised estimates.
  10. Quickly find the NAV for any fund since 3rd April 2005 to enter lump sum transactions.
  11. The sheet comes with two financial goal dashboards: one for retirement and one for children’s future. It can be duplicated or customised for other goals.
  12. Those with a unified portfolio (same investments for multiple goals) can use the sheet.
  13. Two variants are available: One for mutual funds and another for mutual funds and stocks. The previously published stock tracker is integrated with this sheet. It gives the annualised return of individual stocks and the overall portfolio after considering all corporate actions like dividends, splits, etc., accurately per SEBI norms, avoiding the mistakes many stock portfolio trackers make.
  14. All future bug updates and version updates will be made available to users. To ensure you receive these updates, add this email address to your contact list: pattu {AT} freefincal {DOT} com.
  15. Affordable! The fully featured tool is only Rs. 1000. This is a one-time purchase. Variants with fewer features cost even less!
  16. NEW! An add-on module for plotting and comparing your mutual fund portfolio with a benchmark since inception is now available! This module only costs Rs. 200 extra! This is also a one-time purchase.
  17. We are open to feature suggestions if they would help many users.
  18. 100% skin in the game: We will use this sheet to track all our mutual funds and stock investments.

Both the boy and girl version covers of Chinchu gets a superpower.
Most investor problems can be traced to a lack of informed decision-making. We have all made bad decisions and money mistakes when we started earning and spent years undoing these mistakes. Why should our children go through the same pain? What is this book about? As parents, what would it be if we had to groom one ability in our children that is key not only to money management and investing but to any aspect of life? My answer: Sound Decision Making. So in this book, we meet Chinchu, who is about to turn 10. What he wants for his birthday and how his parents plan for it and teach him several key ideas of decision-making and money management is the narrative. What readers say!
