Simplifying investing since 1992

It all started with a simple clip file – a clip file containing a pioneering set of reports on companies, researched and written by a fresh college graduate, Dhirendra Kumar in 1992, at the dawn of India’s economic reforms when PSU disinvestments were first proposed. This was published by ‘The Economic Times’ as a series, and from there, Value Research had its humble beginnings.

The Most Accurate & Reliable Source of Mutual Fund Information in India

Over the next decade, Value Research’s credibility as a trusted source for mutual fund information and insights grew significantly

In the years before the internet became widely available in India, newspapers were the only source of regular investment data for people but there was nothing on mutual funds. Value Research tied up with ‘The Economic Times’ in 1993 to launch India’s first mutual fund scorecard. This printed database continued to be published weekly in ‘The Economic Times’ for a decade and was, in a way, the earliest ancestor of this website.

In 1993, Value Research created and published India’s first fund ratings in ‘Business Today’ magazine. This was the launch of the rating system that, 28 years later, is still India’s most trusted.

Over the next few years, its reach in the media expanded vastly with ‘The Times of India’, ‘The Economic Times’, ‘Business Standard’, ‘Deccan Chronicle’, ‘Telegraph’, ‘Amar Ujala Karobar’, ‘Financial Express’, ‘Eenadu’, and ‘Amar Ujala’ starting to carry mutual fund data and analyses from Value Research. Even Bloomberg, the de facto global authority on financial data, began to use Value Research data as part of its service.

When the first dot-com boom took off in India, every nascent financial portal in India came to Value Research for mutual fund data and analysis, thus cementing its reputation as India’s most accurate and reliable source of mutual fund data.
