by Travis Clark, Managing Director, Marketech Focus | Mar 9th 2021

Unlock the ultimate solution for investing, trading insights and performance tracking by connecting your Marketech Focus account with Sharesight’s online portfolio tracker. Marketech’s connection to the Sharesight API means that investors can automatically sync their Marketech trades to Sharesight, giving them access to the performance tracking and tax reporting features of Sharesight along with Marketech’s low-cost brokerage and trading insights.

What is Marketech Focus?

Marketech Focus is an online trading platform designed to provide market-leading trading tools and fairer fees to active ASX investors. Unlike traditional platforms where active investors can spend thousands of dollars each year on trading fees, Marketech’s pricing model rewards active traders with lower fees. Marketech also provides investors with real-time streaming pricing data via mobile and PC, plus information and trading tools that enable greater insight, control and transparency over trading decisions.

Why investors should connect Marketech and Sharesight

Together, Marketech Focus and Sharesight create the ultimate connected infrastructure for ASX traders and investors. By connecting your Marketech account to Sharesight, all of your historical and ongoing Marketech trades will be automatically synced to your Sharesight portfolio, giving you access to Sharesight’s performance tracking, tax reporting and a range of powerful performance reports. For active investors, this means less time spent on portfolio and tax admin, and more time to focus on your trading strategy.

How to connect your Marketech account to Sharesight

Connecting your Marketech account to Sharesight is easy. All you need to do is sign up for Sharesight, then enter your Sharesight account number into the portfolio section on the Marketech Focus app or webpage.
