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.
The Premium trading history file contained all the corporate actions and entitlements to the portfolio these will not have been imported into Sharesight. Now work through the corporate actions and entitlements to manually add these to Sharesight. We have help pages in our Help Centre to help you handle these.
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.
2 - Verify and confirm automatically generated data (dividends and corporate actions).
3 - Share access of your portfolio with your accountant.
Note: This connection only share your trade history and ongoing investment data with Sharesight none of your personal account data is shared.
