BlogRelease Notes

Every feature Sharesight released in 2021

by Stephanie Stefanovic, Content Writer, Sharesight

2021 was a year filled with milestones for us here at Sharesight. We are proud to say that we reached over 300,000 global users in 2021, and continued to prioritise the expansion of our global user base by adding support for eight additional stock exchanges and over 50 brokers – meaning Sharesight users can now automatically import trades from over 200 brokers worldwide. With user feedback in mind, we also launched the Multi-Currency Valuation and Multi-Period reports; plus re-launched the Sharesight Community Forum.

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 2021.
