Foreign Currency Valuation Report
Note: This report is only available on Expert and Sharesight Pro plans. You can upgrade your plan to use this feature.
The Foreign Currency Valuation Report in Sharesight allows you to see the value of the holdings (investments) in a portfolio denominated in the foreign currency of your choice, on any past date since your portfolio’s creation
The report calculates the final end-of-day value on the date selected for each holding in a portfolio, then applies the prevailing foreign exchange rate to calculate the value in the foreign currency chosen.
To make this calculation, Sharesight uses intraday FX rates from Open Exchange Rates, with support for over 67 different currencies in the report.
The report shows all investments held within a portfolio on the report date. As well as:
- The currency each investment is denominated in
- The price per unit in that currency
- The number of units held
- The value of the investment in the investment currency
- The value in the base currency of the Tax Residency of the portfolio
- The foreign exchange rate used
- The value of the investment in the foreign currency chosen
The report also allows you to view values broken down along a number of default dimensions or use Sharesight’s Custom Groups feature to group investments according to your own classifications.
