The ‘Move into listed security’ feature creates a new holding in the selected listed instrument and copies your trades and dividends/distributions from your existing custom investment holding to the new listed instrument holding. The custom investment holding is then deleted.

Because of this any existing hyperlinks to the old custom investment holding or its transactions will no longer work.

Examples of such hyperlinks: - Sharesight alert emails & weekly portfolio emails - Sharesight links included on Xero invoices if you have set up Xero synchronisation

Note: The move function is not yet available for fixed interest holdings.
