Value Research has the longest and proudest history of helping the Indian saver achieve financial goals. Here are a few highlights

Our Journey

At the dawn of India’s economic reforms, PSU disinvestments are first proposed. Fresh out of college, Dhirendra Kumar researches and writes a pioneering set of reports on these companies, which is published by The Economic Times as a series. Value Research is born.


Value Research starts specialising in mutual fund research, creating and publishing India’s first fund ratings in Business Today magazine. This was the launch of the rating system that, 25 years later, is still India’s most trusted.


The first dotcom boom takes off in India, and every nascent financial portal in India comes to Value Research for mutual fund data and analysis. Value Research rapidly builds up in-house tech capability to handle the expansion, creating a re-architected Relational Database backend that continues to evolve.


Launch and expansion of own products

The expanded team and heightened tech capabilities set the stage for two decades of expansion of Value REsearch’s own branded products

With widespread internet use still a long way off, Value Research launches the monthly print magazine, Mutual Fund Insight


Continued expansion of business services, magazine circulation, as well as website usage. Increasing inhouse capability to track and analyse equity, in preparation of expansion beyond mutual funds


Launch of the annual compendium, Mutual Fund Yearbook, which is now published as ‘Best Funds’



India’s mutual funds are just fledglings but Dhirendra recognises them as the key to Indian savers getting a share of the fruits of liberalisation. In the years before the Internet became widely available in India, newspapers are the only source of regular investment data for people but there’s nothing on mutual funds. Value Research ties up with The Economic Times to launch India’s first Mutual Fund Scorecard. This printed database continues to be published weekly in ET for a decade and is, in a way, the earliest ancestor of this website.


As mutual fund investment begins to take off, Value Research establishes itself as the most accurate and reliable source of mutual fund information on Indian funds. It’s reach in the media expands vastly with Times of India, Economic Times, Business Standard, Deccan Chronicle, Telegraph, Amar Ujala Karobar, Financial Express, Eenadu, and Amar Ujala starting to carry mutual fund data and analyses from Value Research. Value Research’s name begins to be closely associated with quality mutual fund coverage in the vast readership these publications reach. Doordarshan’s ‘A Few Rupees More’, which in 1995, marks the beginning of Value Research’s presence in the broadcast media. Bloomberg, the defacto global authority on financial data, begins to use Value Research data as part of its service.Value Research launches its first direct product, the ‘Mutual Fund Performance Report’ service for fund managers and fund advisors.


Value Research Online is launched and rapidly becomes India’s most popular online source of mutual fund data for investors. Two decades on, it’s still comfortably comfortably holding that position. The heart of the website is a Portfolio Manager that is easy to use and yet packed with analytical power.


Launch of Wealth Insight, the monthly equity investment magazine, in association with ICICIDirect, ICICI Bank’s stockbroking arm. ICICIDirect starts sending the magazine to over a lakh members, instantly making it India’s largest equity investment publication.


Intense upgradation in-house equity analysis capability,culminating in the launch of Value Research Stock Advisor, a premium advisory service.
