Import your Investec data to Sharesight
Sharesight allows you to import your historical and ongoing trades in South African stocks and ETFs through the Trade Confirmation Emails feature, or you can choose to manually import your historical trades by uploading a spreadsheet file. Keep reading to learn more.
How to import historical trades through a spreadsheet
One simple way to import historical trades to Sharesight is by creating and formatting a spreadsheet file filled with trades from your trading account.
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
Sharesight’s Trade Confirmation Emails feature is an effortless way to import historical and ongoing trades to a Sharesight portfolio. By simply having your broker’s trade confirmations forwarded to your unique Sharesight email address, all of your trades are synced to your portfolio, inclusive of corporate actions such as dividends, mergers and stock splits, with no effort on your part.
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.
