National Pension Scheme Fund Screener June 2024: Shortlist consistent performers

7 min read

This is a National Pension Scheme Fund Screener to shortlist consistently performing NPS schemes. You can also spot NPS schemes with a higher return than a benchmark at a lower risk. This is similar in design to the freefincal Equity Mutual Fund Performance Screener.Inside, you get discounted links to our robo advisory tool and two courses: How to get people to pay for your skills (aka earn from skills) and the lectures on goal-based portfolio management.Currently, 14 Equity T1 and T2 NPS schemes are part of the screener. Additional schemes (corporate bonds and government bonds) will be added in the coming months.Use this screener file to quickly find the best-performing NPS schemes that consistently outperform category benchmarks/indices with adequate downside protection (better performance when the index is down) and upside performance (better performance when the index is up).Note: Contrary to popular belief, NPS schemes are not index funds! They have a benchmark and are expected to beat it.What does this NPS Performance Screener cover?It gives you three outputs:Rolling return outperformance consistency: the NPS  scheme/fund returns are compared with category benchmark returns over every possible 1Y,2Y,3Y,4Y, and 5Y period. The higher the outperformance consistency, the better. Suppose 876 fund returns were compared with 876 benchmark returns, and the fund has beaten the benchmark 675 times. The consistency score will be 675/876 ~ 77%.Upside performance consistency over every possible 1Y,2Y,3Y,4Y, and 5Y: The higher, the better. A score of 70% means that 7 out of 10 times, the NPS fund performed better than the category benchmark when the benchmark increased. This is a measure of reward.Downside performance consistency over every possible 1Y,2Y,3Y,4Y, and 5Y: The higher, the better. A score of 60% means 6 out of 10 times, the NPS fund performed better than the category benchmark when the benchmark was moving down. This is a measure of risk protection.If you open the screener file, you see column headings like this.Screenshot of the Freefincal National Pension Scheme Fund Screener part 1You have the scheme category, benchmark, NPS scheme name, no of 1Y returns of the benchmark(index), no of 1Y returns of the fund, no of times the fund 1Y return is above index 1Y return, the 1Y rolling return consistency; upside performance consistency and downside protection consistency. These columns are repeated for 2Y,3Y,4Y and 5Y.You can screen by filtering out funds with return outperformance consistency of >=60%, a downside protection consistency of >= 60% and so on. This is only an example. You can apply your criterion for screening.Benchmarks UsedThese are benchmarks closest to the fund type and are used by many funds in each category.Equity T1 and T2 schemes: Nifty 200 TRI (investment universe of NPS equity schemes) and Nifty 50 TRIScreen for NPS schemes with higher than benchmark returns with lower riskHere, you can screen for funds with excess return > 0 in the last 1,2,3,4,5 year trailing periods. This means the fund return is greater than the index return. You can also add excess risk < 0 filters for the same periods. This means that the fund risk is less than the index risk. Hence, the excess risk is negative.Take, for example, ICICI PRUDENTIAL PENSION FUND SCHEME E – TIER ITrailing Benchmark Return 1Y: 22.704%Trailing Fund Return 1Y: 35.089%Excess return 1Y: 12.385% (positive excess return is good!)Index standard deviation (NAV volatility) 1Y: 3.732%Scheme standard deviation 1Y: 3.592%Excess risk of the scheme: -0.140% (negative excess risk is good!)So, over the last 1Y, the NPS scheme has significantly outperformed the index with lower NAV volatility.The idea here is to find funds that have beaten the index in terms of higher returns (excess return >0) and lower risk (excess risk <0) in the last 1,2,3,4,5 year period. You can relax it to 3/4/5 year periods if you wish.This is a screenshot of the data.Screenshot of the Freefincal National Pension Scheme Fund Screener part 2Reward measure: Rolling returns outperformance consistency.Rolling returns are a simple estimate of how consistently a fund has outperformed a benchmark.Take the ICICI PRUDENTIAL PENSION FUND SCHEME E – TIER II as an example. There are 476 five-year rolling returns when compared with Nify 200 TRI. Out of these, the fund beat the benchmark 220 times. So the Rolling returns outperformance consistency = 220/476 = 46.2%. Naturally, the higher the rolling return outperformance consistency, the better.Reward and Risk Measure: Upside Performance & Downside CaptureUpside performance consistency over every possible 1Y,2Y,3Y,4Y, 5Y: Higher the better. A score of 70% means, 7 out of 10 times, the Fund performed better than the category benchmark when the benchmark increased. This is a measure of reward. It is computed from rolling upside capture data.Downside performance consistency over every possible 1Y, 2Y, 3Y,4Y, and 5Y. The higher, the better. A score of 60% means 6 out of 10 times, the Fund performed better than the category benchmark when the benchmark was moving down. This is a measure of risk protection. It is computed from rolling downside capture data.  If you wish to understand how these are calculated, please read this:  Introduction to Downside and Upside Capture Ratios and proceed to this one, for example. For some funds, a high downside capture consistency will lead to better returns; for some funds, a high upside capture consistency will lead to better returns. The screener can help distinguish between the two types of performers. Recommend reading: What is mutual fund downside protection, and why is it important?How to use the NPS Performance ScreenerThere are multiple ways to screen for mutual funds. I will discuss two examples.Then, method A:  Set the 3Y and 5Y rolling return outperformance consistency to be above 60% or 70% or so. That should give you a nice shortlist to choose from. Then, you can visually look for funds with the right downside protection consistency and pick one. Method B: Look for funds above 60% or 70% downside protection consistency over 3Y and 5Y and choose one. Remember, never set narrow filters and do not be too demanding.  Wanting to select the fund with the best past performance is plain immaturity. Your screening criteria should yield 5-6 funds at all times. Why should I use this screener? Why can’t I look at trailing returns and screen? Trailing returns are 3Y or 5Y returns calculated with the last business date (3Y and 5Y prior).  This is just one data point to consider. Here, we find a lot more to determine consistency.Excess Risk vs Excess Return Screener: The idea here is to find funds that have beaten the index in terms of higher returns (excess return >0) and lower risk (excess risk <0) in the last 1,2,3,4,5 year period. You can relax it to 3/4/5 year periods if you wish.Important InformationThis screener costs Rs. 150 and is meant for personal use only. Inside, you get a discounted link to our robo advisory tool and two courses: How to get people to pay for your skills (aka earn from skills) and the lectures on goal-based portfolio management.The cost is only for the data in the sheet.You will get an Excel file with the data.
