Who is Robinhood Financial?

Established in 2013, Robinhood is a US-based broker with an online trading platform that offers ‘zero commission trading’ on US-listed securities. The platform has grown in popularity after offering commission-free trading in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Other key features include the ability to purchase fractional shares, as well as research tools such as earnings calendars and the ability to view the top 100 most popular stocks on the platform.

Why you should track your Robinhood trades with Sharesight

By importing your Robinhood trades to Sharesight along with the rest of your portfolio, you can effortlessly track the price and performance of your investments across different brokers, asset classes, markets and currencies – all in one place. Investors will also benefit from Sharesight’s 15 minute delayed pricing for key US markets, plus the ability to automatically track dividend payments, including dividend reinvestment plans (DRPs) and upcoming announced dividends. Access to a powerful range of reports such as Performance, Portfolio Diversity and Multi-Currency Valuation is just another reason that investors should consider using Sharesight to track their investment portfolio.

Track your dividend income

Unlike other portfolio trackers, Sharesight automatically tracks dividend and distribution income (including dividend reinvestment plans) and takes this into account when calculating your investment return. In the screenshot below for example, dividends make an important contribution to this stock’s returns, highlighting the value of a portfolio tracking solution that includes more than just capital gains in its performance calculations.
