    How Scripbox Algorithmically Selects Mutual Funds?

    Scripbox uses time-tested principles, historical data, and valid assumptions about asset classes. We combine them with a rigorous process to finalize which asset classes make the most sense for specific types of objectives, considering the time needed to achieve them.

    Once we select an asset class, our algorithm goes to work to select the best financial products.

    The algorithm scores financial products on multiple parameters, giving relevant weights to each of the listed parameters, such as:

    • Track record of the product – how long has it been around?
    • Assets under management – how big is it – for example, the size of a mutual fund
    • Liquidity – how easy is it to move in or out of the product?
    • Consistency of performance – how much have the returns fluctuated?
    • The risk associated with the product – what risks impact the product?
    • Quality of underlying assets – we assess how risky the underlying assets are – for example, by considering bond ratings in the case of debt funds

    With such a scientific and detailed approach Scripbox ensures:

    1. Bias free product selection – commissions don’t sway our decisions
    2. Minimal human intervention and thus minimal impact of emotions and behavioral biases
    3. Consideration of the maximum number of factors that can impact an investment product
    4. Application of logic to investment product selection 

    Our investment product selection science helps us help you, without biases clouding the evaluation.
