Import your Magellan funds to Sharesight

How to import historical trades through a spreadsheet

As long as the file contains all the required information, you can upload it to Sharesight and quickly bulk import the trading data you wish to see in your portfolio.

Use Sharesight’s Trade Confirmation Emails feature for ongoing trades

It’s easy for Australian investors to use Sharesight’s Trade Confirmation Emails feature to add buy trades from a Magellan account to a Sharesight portfolio. Read our Trade Confirmation Emails help page to get started, then forward your Magellan PDF transaction confirmations to your unique portfolio email address located under the Integrations tab in the Trade Confirmation Emails section.

Note: This feature is designed primarily for ongoing trades, but it can also be used to fill in historical trades in your Sharesight portfolio. All you need to do is manually forward the Trade Confirmation Emails for the trades you wish to see in your portfolio, starting with the earliest trade you want included.
