Who is Hatch?

Hatch is a digital broker that exists entirely to help Kiwis put their money to work. The platform gives novices and experts alike access to world class investments through a smart, curated investing experience. Created by Kiwi Wealth (Kiwibank’s sister company) in 2018, Hatch allows Kiwis to buy and sell full and fractional shares and ETFs listed on the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq – markets which Sharesight also supports.

Why you should connect your Hatch account to Sharesight

By importing your Hatch trades to Sharesight (along with the rest of your investments), you can easily track your investment performance across different brokers, asset classes and over 40 global markets, including the NZX, ASX, NYSE and NASDAQ. Investors also gain access to Sharesight’s advanced performance and tax reporting designed for the needs of self-directed investors.

Sharesight offers a range of powerful reports for investors including Performance, Portfolio Diversity, Contribution Analysis, Multi-Period, Multi-Currency Valuation and Future Income (upcoming announced dividends). The ability to track cash accounts, property and cryptocurrency 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 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.
