Add a Custom Investment
To create a Custom Investment:
2 - Select the ‘Add a custom investment’ check box within the ‘Add New Holding’ section.
3 - Complete the other form fields as required.
Once you have added the holding you can record dividends and trades against it just like any other holding in Sharesight.
You will need to update the share price in order to receive up to date performance information. The share price can be updated via the Individual Holding Page, click ‘Enter a price’ in the ‘Instrument Detail’ tab to update today’s share price, or click ‘Manage prices’ to view and maintain historical prices.
Managing prices using a CSV file
The manage prices page allows you to enter new prices and change existing prices (simply click on the prices to edit them). The manage prices page also allows you to import a CSV file containing share prices. This feature directly supports the historic price files that can be downloaded from the Google Finance or Yahoo Finance websites.

If you have added a custom investment to your Sharesight portfolio that is now listed or Sharesight has started supporting, you can merge it without losing any data. Follow the step by step guide on how to merging a custom investment to a listed or supported investment.
