I’ve just finished the first version of my new website: Compare Funds – Managed Fund Comparison Charts and Statistics.
Sorry to everyone I’ve ignored over the last couple of weeks – it’s been pretty intense trying to get this ready by today – a LOT of late nights!
There is still a lot more work to do on the site – it’s a long way from where I want it to be and I have a long list of features I want to implement. All that is done so far is basic fund profile information, charting (including moving averages), and historical yearly and quarterly performance figures.
I currently have data for the following fund managers:
- Colonial First State – Managed Investment Funds
- Colonial First State – FirstChoice Investments
- Colonial First State – FirstChoice Wholesale Investments
- Platinum Asset Management
I will be adding additional fund managers over the next few weeks (I have to program the data capture routines for each new manager).
I haven’t yet done the comparison tables – that will be the next feature I work on.
I figured that what I have done so far will be useful enough to some people, and I can get some feedback on what features are important.
I’ve already used the site myself – I finally got the rollovers into my new SMSF, so I’ve been using the data and tables to choose some new funds to invest my super in (although the comparison tables would have been useful here!)
… please remember the site is still in development, so some things may not work completely, and some of the data may not be 100% accurate.
Not yet thanks Paul – I have a lot of work I want to do on the site before I start pushing it out there. I’ve mostly only made it public now so I could get some early feedback and test the robustness of my code.
Give me a few weeks to get some of the more useful features and some more data in there.
Hi Sim, Aha I was wondering what you’d been cooking up. I’ve been meeting with entrepreneurs, investors and coders as I look at what the next step for me is.
Would you like me to get the word out about it?
