Why you should track Interactive Investor trades with Sharesight

By importing your trades with Interactive Investor to Sharesight, you can easily track your investment performance across multiple brokers and asset classes, or take advantage of Sharesight’s advanced performance and tax reporting designed for the needs of self-directed investors.
