Pearler integrates with the Sharesight API

by Kurt Walkom, Co-Founder, Pearler | May 6th 2021

Pearler now integrates directly with the Sharesight API to send transaction data directly to Sharesight, making life easier for our customers to conduct performance and tax reporting.

As Australia’s only online broker focused on long-term investing, Pearler is all about making it easier for everyday Australians to buy and accumulate shares. Our Sharesight integration means that it’s now extremely straightforward for our customers to meet their investment reporting needs.

In fact, a large segment of our early adopters are avid Sharesight users, so it was a no-brainer for us to make their lives easier by connecting their favourite investing tool (Pearler) with their favourite reporting tool (Sharesight) using the Sharesight API.

Pearler Integrates with the Sharesight API

What is Pearler?

Pearler is an online broker for long-term Aussie investors. The company was founded by three friends from Sydney in 2018 after we got fed up with only having two bad options to refer our friends to when they wanted to start investing – confusing trading platforms or expensive micro-investment apps.

Just like other brokers, Pearler allows investors to invest directly into shares and ETFs. But where we differ is that instead of designing our platform around the buying and selling ("trading") experience, we’ve built Pearler from the ground up to focus on the thing that matters most – helping people achieve their long-term financial goals.

To do this we’ve got features like Goals and Autoinvest, which together allow you to set a goal (e.g. financial independence), then automate your investing strategy to achieve these outcomes, and track your progress along the way.

We’ve also embedded community elements in our platform – we make it easy for our investors to compare and share their portfolios with friends, family and ‘Finfluencers’. Users can discover the most popular stocks and ETFs too, amongst other great features.

Our goal is to make it easy for every Aussie to invest in shares the right way – incremental amounts in diversified portfolios, for the long-term.

What’s different about Pearler?

One word: Long-term.

We’ve literally specifically designed Pearler for long-term investors.

Most low-cost brokers focus all their energy on making the trading experience better. Limit orders, market depths, weekly performance updates, the list goes on… none of this helps a long-term investor!

We’ve removed all this trading crap and replaced it with genuine long-term investing features like Autoinvest, Goals and Shareable Portfolios.

Rather than go through everything line by line, here’s a summary from our pricing page:

Pearler Features

Why did Pearler integrate with Sharesight?

Sharesight and Pearler solve two complementary problems. Pearler makes it easy to invest for the long-term, while Sharesight makes it easy to measure long-term portfolio performance.

Now every long-term investor in Australia can automate both their investments and their reporting. This saves a significant amount of time, maximises returns and reduces stress.

The integration was quick and easy using the Sharesight API, with the integration up and running with only light resourcing over a couple of months.
