Powered with data from Morningstar, Fund Compare lets you research up to five mutual funds or ETFs at a time—in any combination you can think of—and there’s no requirement to use a Manulife Investment Management fund in the comparison.
Our goal was to use one of the most powerful data engines available—Morningstar—but to take away the complexity and provide useful and interactive data visualizations. Fund Compare can help save time researching products. Individual investors can reap the benefits too, so try Fund Compare today!
Here are three easy steps to get started:
Step one: launch Fund Compare
Step two: add mutual funds or ETFs to compare
From the Fund Compare page, you can add just about any Canadian-domiciled mutual fund or ETF in Morningstar’s database. You can search by fund code, by fund ticker, or by fund name. Note that for mutual funds, comparisons are share class specific. You won’t be prevented from using different share classes in your research, but to get a true apples-to-apples comparison, you’ll want to use the same share class. Fund Compare can also populate similar funds for comparison based on the share class and Morningstar category of the first fund added. To make comparisons even easier, it will list these suggestions by total market value (highest to lowest).
Step three: save and share your research
After you’ve found a useful comparison, you may want to save it and refer to it later. Fund Compare was created so that all saved comparisons will load with the most recent performance, so you never have to worry about a comparison getting stale.

Investing involves risks, including the potential loss of principal. The stock prices of midsize and small companies can change more frequently and dramatically than those of large companies. Growth stocks may be more susceptible to earnings disappointments, and value stocks may decline in price. Large company stocks could fall out of favor, and foreign investing, especially in emerging markets, has additional risks, such as currency and market volatility and political and social instability. Fixed-income investments are subject to interest-rate and credit risk; their value will normally decline as interest rates rise or if an issuer is unable or unwilling to make principal or interest payments. Investments in higher-yielding, lower-rated securities include a higher risk of default. Liquidity—the extent to which a security may be sold or a derivative position closed without negatively affecting its market value, if at all—may be impaired by reduced trading volume, heightened volatility, rising interest rates, and other market conditions. Municipal bonds could decline due to issues at the state or project level, and funds that invest in one state could be disproportionately affected. Capital gains, if any, are taxable, and some municipal bond investors may also be subject to the Alternative Minimum Tax. Please see the funds' prospectuses for additional risks.
