What is portfolio XIRR, and how can it be viewed?

If the majority of the investments are less than a year, the XIRR would be greater than the actual percentage. This is not the correct way to measure returns. Therefore, a “-” is displayed for portfolio XIRR.

When calculating returns on investments over multiple years with various transactions, relying only on absolute returns, which ignore the investment time period, may not provide an accurate result. For more accuracy, especially when dealing with multiple investments at different times, such as Systematic Investment Plans (SIPs), Extended Internal Rate of Return (XIRR) can be used.

The portfolio XIRR combines the current holdings and displays the annualised returns. It does not take into account historical buy and sell trades.

To view the portfolio XIRR, follow these steps:

  1. Login to
  2. Click on Portfolio.
  3. Click on Holdings.
