Indonesian Mutual Fund Historical Performance Data

Finally… I have completed the beta development of “Mutual Fund Manager” (“Reksadana Manager”). With this application, I can have historical performance data on every mutual funds available in Indonesia. You can rely on this data, because it is originated from from Bapepam itself, the Indonesian Capital Market Supervisory Agency.

When I decided to enter the mutual fund market, I personally got stressed because I could not found sufficient historical performance data as one of the basis of my decisions. It is very contrast with overseas financial information provider, such as MSN MoneyCentral or marketwatch.com. Unlike stocks, information for mutual funds were very hard to find. Previously, I found e-samuel.com and bisnis.com were one of the most up-to-date information. But later I found out that they don’t provide sufficient historical data. E-samuel.com came up with the historical data available in charts, but their data is incomplete, they don’t have data on every mutual funds available in Indonesia. Even JSX and SSX (Surabaya Stock Exchange) don’t have the information I need.

Finally I got the most representative source of information, the Bapepam (www.bapepam.go.id). Although they got details on every mutual funds available in Indonesia, but the user interface is not convenient for users who needed daily data. I had to do multiple clicks, and copy-paste the screen to Excel (not to mention reformatting and adding more columns). So again, I decided to automate these tasks, get myself back with Delphi to develop the application I needed. Checkout the snapshot.




There would be many improvement for the next release. One which need improvement is the synchronization process, I need to upgrade it by using threads. More features will be available to make this application as a personal mutual fund manager, e.g. you can check how much your investment worth at any time. I look forward for your comments and suggestions.

You also need this application? Contact me, and I’ll send it to you, its free. Of course, you should be patient to wait until a stable version is available.

i have the same needs also. but unfortunately, i was unable to find the bancassurance data everywhere. I'm quite stressed finding who's in charge on this data.

I'm still looking though, I'll let u know when I found it. It would be nice if you submit your e-mail also, we can discuss further :)

wew, fast response...
I've just been collecting performance data of several bancassurance product for last 2 months... grab them from bisnis.com manually :(
If the program can do so automatically, it would be very very helpful...

oalah... mas robby tho...
I have trying to reach you again through e-mails, but no response. Who would have guessed we met again in this blog :)

well, surely my program CAN grab it automatically :) previously, I always seek the primary datasource. since I have given up, I will enhance my program to grab bisnis.com.

I am preparing a new project, to publish all of my data freely through a web portal. I'll let u know when it's ready ;)
