by David Olsen, Content Manager, Sharesight

Sharesight’s new Multi-Currency Valuation Report is built for the needs of investors who invest across global markets and who think in terms of more than one currency when making investment decisions. This report allows investors to see the value of every investment in their portfolio denominated in both the currency it is traded in as well as its value when converted to any of the 67 currencies (including crypto) in Sharesight using the end-of-day value and prevailing forex rate on any date selected.

This report is perfect for investors who want to see their investments denominated in any other currency than that of their tax residency, with a range of powerful features, such as the ability to group by different dimensions including currency, with the sub-total value calculated across all holdings in each investment currency.
