Manual Input

August 16, 2022

There are three ways to import accounts to your investment portfolio:

1. Connect your brokerage account

2. Manual Input

3. CSV file upload

In this tutorial, we’ll demonstrate the quick and easy Manual Input, a way to add your whole portfolio manually in less than two minutes.

Navigating to Manual Input

Navigate to Manage Portfolios.

Then Add Account.

Then Manual Input.

Add individual securities

Add all individual securities for the given portfolio.

You can search by ticker (AAPL) or security name (Apple Inc), and select from our comprehensive library of ETFs, stocks, mutual funds, and cryptocurrencies.

Note: if a ticker in your portfolio does not come up in the dropdown, add it anyway and the system will do an asynchronous search in the backend from a larger database.

If you'd like to add cash directly to the portfolio, edit the "Cash Investable" field.

Finalize portfolio

Press Continue to enter the account details like account nickname, and whether its tax-free or externally managed.

Tax-free is used for accounts like retirement accounts (401Ks, IRAs, RRSPs, etc.)

Externally managed is used for managed funds like Robo-Advisors and accounts managed by wealth managers.

Just like that, your full portfolio is added in less than two minutes!
