Importantly, Sharesight takes into account the impact of capital gains, dividends, brokerage fees and currency fluctuations when calculating returns – giving you the complete picture of your portfolio’s performance. Sharesight also offers a range of powerful reports including performance, portfolio diversity, contribution analysis, exposure, multi-currency valuation, multi-period and future income (upcoming dividends). The ability to track cash accounts, property and even cryptocurrency is just another reason you should consider using Sharesight to track your investment portfolio.

Track your dividend income

Unlike other portfolio trackers, Sharesight automatically tracks dividend and distribution income (including franked dividends and dividend reinvestment plans) and takes this into account when calculating your investment return. In the screenshot below for example, dividends make a significant 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.
