How to Compare with FundVisualizer
Financial advisors have many sources of information about investments available to them, but few are as easy to use and powerful as FundVisualizer. This research tool offers key data to help advisors compare over 30,000 mutual funds, including ETFs, and indexes.
FundVisualizer is designed specifically for advisors and makes investment research quicker, easier, and more insightful.
FundVisualizer is available to any advisor and is optimized for both desktop and mobile devices. The tool offers a clear choice of options — compare, explore, or import funds. From these starting points, you have quick access to FundVisualizer data.
With Compare, it’s simple to define a broad list of funds, ETFs, and indexes. Type in fund names or tickers to compare and analyze. FundVisualizer provides insight on more than 80 different performance and risk metrics.
You can easily build interactive charts and graphs, create PDFs for clients, and save your research to use later.
Choose Explore and type the name of a fund or ETF to begin. FundVisualizer will display the top 20 performing funds in the same Morningstar category and share class. You’ll see your fund displayed at the center of the chart, surrounded by its peers. The size of its bubble shows how it ranks versus the category’s top performers.
The initial sort is based on performance, but you can adjust it to rank other metrics or add more filters to develop a focused list of funds.
If you start with a Morningstar category, the tool will display the top 20 performing funds in that Morningstar category, defaulted to Y share class.
Use Import to either copy and paste funds from a spreadsheet or upload a whole file at once. This feature helps accelerate research on a list of your favored funds or a portfolio.
As long as you upload the tickers, you’ll be able to get to work, reviewing the list to make sure it matches the funds you were seeking. Your list will automatically be part of your "My Funds" tab.
As an advisor, you work hard to earn and keep your clients’ trust. FundVisualizer is designed to help you do more by providing efficient research and high-impact charts. FundVisualizer’s ability to save research also increases your efficiency; data is automatically updated every time you access your charts.
