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.

Now that you have populated your portfolio, we recommend you verify and confirm automatically generated data.

With the CMC Sharesight connect any time you trade with CMC your trade will automatically be populated with Sharesight.

The CMC and Sharesight connect can revoke at any time. It needs to revoked in both Bendigo Invest Direct website & Sharesight.

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.

5 - Use Sharesight to help you complete your tax return.
