Following is an overview of FundVisualizer’s interactive charts.

Table

Fund data are displayed in a tabular format, with almost 80 performance and risk metrics. Drag and drop funds for easy side-by-side comparison.

Mountain

Overview of performance over time, defaulted to a 5-year time period. Use the sliding bar to view another rolling 5-year period, or expand or contract the time. You can also select a standard time period, or use the date range boxes to focus on a specific time frame.

Bar/Line

Performance over time in bar and line form. Drill down into details by selecting specific performance criteria to chart along the Y-axis.

X/Y

Compare funds across three-dimensions: an x and y axis, and a z, with "z" being the size of the dot. The dot size defaults to performance, but each of these axes can be customized.

Correlation

This chart shows the degree to which investments share similar risk and return characteristics.

Asset allocation

A comparison of asset allocation weighting by category, with options to view as a bubble chart or in table form. Click a point on the chart to see the percent of the fund’s balance in that specific asset allocation.

Sector

A comparison of asset allocation weighting by sector, with options to view as a bubble chart or in table form. Click a point on the chart to see the percent of the fund’s exposure to that sector.

Top holdings

Displays the top holdings in each fund. Click a specific holding to see how long the fund has held that holding and how much is invested. The chart will also highlight that holding across all funds that have the same holding.
