# Where to get master list of mutual funds?

I cant seem to find a straight answer anywhere on Google for this. I would like to create a master list of all known mutual funds and their ticker symbol.

Is it possible to get this data from Edgar's FTP? Is there a particular form that registered investment companies have to file that would have this information that I could crawl the Edgar index for?

• Thanks for the responses. One more quick question, if I crawled the Edgar FTP for all form N-Qs and then took a distinct list off all of the Series/Contracts, what would that give me? Sorry for the ignorance, this is definitely not my field of expertise. Is a Series/Contract with a Ticker symbol a mutual fund? – bendud Nov 20 '14 at 1:53

If you are interested in using Yahoo Finance then you can download this spreadsheet which currently contains approximately 4919 Mutual Funds & their Tickers. hope it helps:
