How to import your historical buy and sell trades
Follow the below steps to import your historical buy and sell trades into Sharesight directly from your ASB Securities account.
1 – Login to or sign up for Sharesight.
2 - On the ‘Let's get you started with Sharesight’ page, select the ‘Import from a Broker’ tile.
3 - Click on the ‘ASB Securities’ tile on the ‘Import from a Broker’ page.
4 - From the ‘Import your ASB Securities trade account with Sharesight' window, type in your ASB Securities login credentials. Please note that for security reasons, Sharesight does not save your ASB Securities login details. Sharesight downloads your trading data using a secure connection.
5 – Select the time frame of the trades you would like to import into Sharesight.
6 - Click import.
7 – The ‘Trades to import into Portfolio’ page will show an itemised list of all trades imported from your ASB Securities trading account. Verify and edit the trade data as required. If trades appear in red, this means that Sharesight can’t upload the trade or the trade will cause errors in your portfolio.
8 – Once you have verified the trade data, click ‘Finish All and Import’.
9 - Once the trades are saved, your Sharesight portfolio will be populated and the Portfolio Overview Page will load.
Your holdings will be calculated by Sharesight’s performance calculation methodology which is a money-weighted return methodology, meaning the investment performance takes account of the size and timing of cash flows.
Sharesight will automatically create dividends and corporate actions for the holdings you have imported.
