Consolidated Views

Content also available for tax entities or on our global site.

Consolidated Views allow you to view the combined performance across multiple portfolios on a single Overview Page and run a selection of reports.

You can also add, edit and delete trades and dividends from within the Consolidated View.

Differences between a Portfolio and a Consolidated View:

  1. A consolidated view is simply a view across a selection of portfolios. All transaction data is saved against the underlying portfolio.

  2. Tax reporting is not available in a consolidated view. A separate portfolio should be created for each tax entity and all tax reporting is run against the individual portfolio.

  3. You cannot add new holdings in a consolidated view. New holdings must be created in a portfolio. To create a new holding from a consolidated view you must first switch back into the appropriate portfolio via the change portfolio menu (or dashboard if you are using Sharesight Pro).

  4. Consolidated views cannot be shared, instead you must share access to each portfolio individually with your guest user (remember that all transaction data is contained in the underlying portfolio and not in the consolidated view). Your guest user may create their own consolidated view across any portfolios that you have shared with them.

Sharesight Pro users can create a consolidated view by clicking the ‘Add a consolidated view’ button located on the portfolios tab of the Sharesight Pro dashboard. Consolidated views can then be accessed and managed under the Consolidated Views tab on the dashboard page.

Note: the consolidated view feature is designed for consolidating a maximum of 5 portfolios to provide a total wealth picture in the context of an individual client. Due to the real time nature of Sharesight’s performance calculations, Consolidated views may become unresponsive when reporting across larger number of portfolios.
