Why you should track Jarden Direct trades with Sharesight

By importing your Jarden Direct trades to Sharesight, you can easily track your investment performance across multiple brokers and asset classes, or take advantage of Sharesight’s advanced performance and tax reporting designed for the needs of self-directed investors.

Importantly, Sharesight gives investors the true picture of their investment performance by taking into account the impact of brokerage fees, dividends and capital gains on their returns.
