Hatch Portfolio in Sharesight

Your holdings will be calculated by Sharesight’s performance calculation methodology which is a money-weighted return methodology, meaning the investment performance takes account of the size and timing of cash flows.

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

With your Hatch account connected to Sharesight any time you trade with Hatch your trade will automatically be populated within Sharesight.

The Hatch and Sharesight connect can revoke at any time. This need to be done on both Hatch’s Sharesight page and in Shareshares on the ‘Sharesight API’ page, under the ‘Account settings’ dropdown menu.

Now that you have populated your portfolio we recommend you:

1 - Review the trades imported:

a - Handle any negative holdings - Holdings with less buy trades than sell trades (occurs when transferred stocks from another broker).

b - Check fractional share trades for rounding differences.

c - Exchange rates are generated by Sharesight using the end of day exchange rate, these can be edited within the trade.

d - Handle any non automated corporate actions, such as mergers etc.

2 - Verify and confirm automatically generated data (dividends and corporate actions).

3 - Share access of your portfolio with your accountant.

4 - Add your other investments to Sharesight.
