Every feature Sharesight released in 2022

by Stephanie Stefanovic, Content Manager, Sharesight | Jan 11th 2023

2022 was a big year for Sharesight. Not only did we celebrate our 15-year anniversary, but we also unveiled our new brand, including a redesigned website, a new logo and a highly refined product. Expanding our support for global investors remained another important priority for us in 2022, with support for seven new stock exchanges and 29 additional currencies, plus additional or improved support for 21 global brokers.

Not every new Sharesight feature gets its own blog post, but all updates are covered in our monthly release notes. In case you have missed any of these updates, here is a list of every new feature and upgrade released by Sharesight in 2022.
