What is the NEO Exchange?

Operating since 2015, the NEO Exchange is a Canadian stock exchange with an online trading platform. The exchange lists over 200 stocks, ETFs and bonds, with an emphasis on senior public companies and investment products. It was established with the aim of discouraging high frequency trading and providing more transparency to investors, as well as the companies listed on the exchange.

Why investors should track their NEO investments with Sharesight

With Sharesight, investors can easily track the price and performance of stocks listed on the NEO Exchange alongside investments across multiple global markets, brokers and asset classes. By consolidating all of their investments in Sharesight, investors gain a portfolio-wide view of their investment performance, benefitting from daily price updates for the NEO Exchange, plus advanced reporting designed for the needs of self-directed investors. In addition, Sharesight’s annualised performance calculation methodology gives investors the complete picture of their portfolio returns by calculating the impact of capital gains, brokerage fees, dividends and foreign exchange rates on performance.

Track dividend income from NEO stocks

Unlike other portfolio trackers, Sharesight automatically tracks dividend and distribution income and includes this information when calculating your investment return. In the screenshot below for example, dividends make an important 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.

  • Performance: Calculate your total portfolio returns over any selected period.

  • Diversity: Discover how the assets in your portfolio are diversified across different investment sectors, investment types, countries and markets.

  • Contribution Analysis: Measure the impact of your holdings and asset allocations on your overall portfolio performance.

  • Future Income: View announced dividends and interest payments expected for investments in your portfolio.

Calculate the impact of NEO investments on your portfolio’s returns

In the screenshot below, you can see the Contribution Analysis Report (sorted by market) being used to assess the ‘weight’ of various markets in a Canadian investor’s portfolio. This would be particularly useful for an investor looking to compare the relative contribution of their NEO investments to the total return on their portfolio, for instance.

In this example, the NEO Exchange is the most significant contributor to the portfolio’s value, constituting 42.53% and $42,976, followed by FundCA (Canadian mutual funds) at 32.39% and $32,727. The report also includes a detailed breakdown of each individual holding’s returns, classified by market.
