Frequently Asked Questions
Mutual fund prices and performance

What types of mutual funds can I track on your Web site? Can I track stocks?

Our Web site provides data on over 4,300 mutual funds available for sale in Canada. This includes virtually all open-end mutual funds, index funds, segregated funds and Canadian mutual funds valued in U.S. dollars. The Noteworthy section of site lists new funds as they are added.

Our site does not provide pricing information for GICs (Guaranteed Investment Certificates), bonds, REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts), or closed-end funds. In general, we do not cover pension funds, as they can only be purchased through a particular employer.

A 'rule of thumb': If a mutual fund is listed in The Globe and Mail, it should be listed on our site as well. If you are unable to find a mutual fund, even after conducting a search using Fund Selector, please contact us.

For comprehensive quotes for stocks on all major North American exchanges, visit

Globe Portfolio, our powerful portfolio tracking tool, allows you to track your Canadian mutual funds, North American stocks and other investments. Find out more about Globe Portfolio.

I can't find a fund I'm interested in following. Could it be under a different name on your Web site?

There are two ways to find a fund. The first is to use Fund Selector - Option A: Select a fund company. If you have already tried that option, then use the table below as you may have been looking under the wrong fund company name.

Your other choice is to use Fund Selector - Option C: Select by entering a fund name, which lets you search by entering part or all of a fund name. For example: Type "technology" to get a list of all funds with the word "technology" in the name. If the results show a fund you would like to add to your fundlist, click in the checkbox to the left of the fund name to leave a mark and click the grey Update Fundlist button at the top of the report.
