Perfios now supports Futures and Options Transactions

Futures & Options transactions are now supported by the Perfios, my favorite online PF manager. Equity reports will now reflect your F&O transactions. As far as I know, this feature is first introduced by the Perfios in India. They already released a mobile application which would run on Samsung mobiles ( which I didn’t try as I am not having Samsung mobile). They also have auto-update support for fixed deposits for users who have accounts with State Bank of India (and all State Bank entities like State Bank of Hyderabad, State Bank of Bikaner and Jaipur etc), Citibank, ICICIBank, HDFC Bank, Vijaya Bank.

Highly useful features of Perfios make it a secure online Personal finance manager. We request Perfios team to develop offline access either using Google Gears or like an application developed by Edelweiss
