What is a Consolidated View?

The Consolidated View feature allows you to “group” multiple portfolios within Sharesight and run a selection of reports across them:

What’s changed?

Once you’ve created a Consolidated View, you may then:

1 – Group by Portfolio

This expanded functionality allows you to easily compare the performance of portfolios at a glance, without having to switch back and forth between them.

From the Portfolio Overview page, select “Group by: Portfolio” from the advanced options menu:

This will chart your consolidated, as well as individual portfolios:

It will also group your holdings by portfolio, and display their individual returns:

The “Group by Portfolio” setting is also now available on the following reports:

2 – Run a Contribution Analysis Report

You may now also run a Contribution Analysis Report on a Consolidated View:

Previously unavailable for Consolidated Views, the Contribution Analysis Report provides insights into the drivers of your portfolio’s performance, be they particular stocks, assets, or exposure to certain countries, sectors, or industries. In the example above, we’re learning which sectors have had the biggest impact on our family’s consolidated portfolio returns.
