Once the trades are saved, your Sharesight portfolio will be populated and the portfolio overview page will load.
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:
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 - Handle any non automated corporate actions, such as mergers etc.
2 - Verify and confirm automatically generated data (dividends and corporate actions).
3 - Set up the Trade Confirmation Emails feature to automatically import future trades.
4 - Share access of your portfolio with your accountant.
5 - Add your other investments to Sharesight.
