One of the founders Mr. Vivek Singal says “We are launching fundpicker as a product on www.thefundoo.com . This product would empower mutual fund advisors and distributors in conducting the high end research which would enable them to make right decision for their end investors. Currently the tools available to them recommend funds on the basis of past performance of a scheme, but we know that past performance is not reflective of the future performance. We aim to launch the beta in another week’s time ”

Summary by Mr Singal: we used tax saving mutual fund as a case study and followed an approach towards selection. It simply demonstrates the usage of tool and nowhere recommend a mutual fund for investment.
2. Selecting Mutual Funds: Looking at Just Past Returns? Think…!!!: http://valuefy.wordpress.com/2013/02/27/why-you-should-stop-looking-at-past-performance-in-mutual-funds/
Summary by Mr Singal: People typically look at the past performance to decide the investments into mutual fund. But the past performance doesn’t guarantee future return. This statement is written in all forms and documents but people don’t know other means to identify the “healthy funds”. In the absence of any other factor people go longer in history to understand healthy fund, some would say short term performance should be taken into account and some would say long term and hence the debate. We analysed the same in our article. At fundpicker, we are coming up with tools which enable mutual fund professionals to look at other factors which would enable them to identify healthy funds.
