Contribution Analysis Report

The Contribution Analysis Report displays how each holding inside a Sharesight portfolio contributes to the overall portfolio performance. The contributions are shown in both a dollar and percentage figure.

The report works excellent in combination with the Sharesight Custom Groups feature. The Custom Groups feature allows for asset allocation based on the portfolio owner’s preferences. The Contribution Analysis Report in turn shows how each asset allocation has performed in comparison to the other asset allocations in the same portfolio.

Note: This functionality is available on Expert and Sharesight Pro plans.
