How to use the tool

Understanding the 'Dashboard
This tab provides an overview of your investments. It reflects how well your investments are doing, and you can identify problem areas at a glance.

Some of these key insights are:
1. The classification of your investments into stocks, mutual funds, fixed deposits, bonds, and other financial instruments.
2. Key signals related to your performance over time. You can track your aggregate performance across a month, a quarter, a year, or even over custom dates.
3. Your transactions, market gains and losses, estimated tax liability, returns, and our analysis of your portfolio. This page is a crisp graphic overview.
4. These graphs and infographics further take you to different sections, where you can see the details.

Understanding the 'Performance' tab

This tab shows how your investments are doing. But that's not it.

  • You can even compare your portfolio's aggregate and asset-wise performance against market benchmarks using the 'gain/loss' feature on this tab.

  • In addition to getting the total returns, you can also view:

    • the inflation-adjusted returns (which is not easily available)
    • whether your investments are beating the Sensex!

(The below screenshot gives you a better understanding of what you'll find in the 'Performance' tab)

Understanding the 'Analysis' tab

  • It rates the quality of your investments.
  • It tells you how diversified your investments are (This is important for beginners and advanced investors).
  • It gives you the asset allocation of your investments.
  • It informs how liquid your investments are.
  • You can learn how much risk you're taking and how to avoid it.
  • You also receive insights on which holdings you can buy, sell, or avoid!

All these aspects are very important for beginners and advanced investors.

You can get such information for your individual investments too.

Understanding the 'Tax Returns' tab

This section calculates your capital gains tax, and makes your income tax return (ITR) filing hassle-free.

Seasoned investor? There's more for you
1. We understand you prefer a more hands-on approach. So, our Export feature on most data-centric tabs allows you to download your investment-related Excel sheets.
2. If you're interested in keeping a tab on your investments' annual returns, one-day performance, etc., you can see the table in the 'Overview' tab.
3. You can also view performance insights by grouping your investments based on various parameters, such as fund house (AMC), category, rating, etc.
4. Using tax reports, you can download your detailed capital gains statement in the same format as the RTAs (registrar and transfer agents) provide. Additionally, you can rebalance your portfolio or exit funds based on the tax report.
5. Need a second opinion? Share your portfolio with your financial advisor or family. Go to the 'Overview' tab and 'Export' your portfolio in an Excel spreadsheet.
