Custom Groups

Custom Groups enable you to customise how your holdings are grouped on certain reports, which is a useful way to apply your own asset allocation framework to your portfolios.

Once created Custom Groups you will now be available to use them in addition to the standard groupings:

  • Market
  • Sector
  • Industry
  • Investment Type
  • Country

Custom Groups can be used to organise your holdings on the Portfolio Overview Page and can be applied to the following reports:

Custom Groups are saved at the account level, meaning they will be applied to all portfolios in your account when being used.

To apply a Custom Group, use the ‘Grouping by’ option on Reports or Portfolio Overview Page and your Custom Groups will be listed below the default groupings.
