Sharesight will automatically create dividends and corporate actions for the holdings you have imported.

With the BOQ Trading Sharesight connect any time you trade with BOQ your trade will automatically be populated with Sharesight.

The BOQ Trading and Sharesight connect can be revoke at any time. It needs to revoked in both BOQ Trading website & Sharesight

Now that you have populated your portfolio we recommend you:
