Overview

With Investment Transactions, you can now manage the individual transactions for your investments, including the ability to perform Transfers to and from your Investment Accounts, as well as the ability to track commissions on buys and sells.

Things to Note:

  • Investment Transactions are currently only available from the Simplifi Web App.

  • Investment Transactions are only available in individual Investment Accounts; you will not see Investment Transactions in the Investments section.

  • Investment Transactions do not interact with your Investments Portfolio or Account Balances. These are designed to be a behind-the-scenes type of scenario that allows you to manage and track your individual investment transactions without impacting your actual Portfolio Value. Your Portfolio Value is determined by the holdings displayed in the Investments section; more details on using the Investments section can be found here.

  • Investment Transaction Categories are limited to investing actions only. If you'd like to add a cash transaction to an Investment Account, you may do so by using the "Payment/Deposit" Category.

  • Investment Transactions will impact the Balance Over Time feature, as well as the Performance Over Time feature. For more details on using Balance Over Time, please see our Support Article here; for more details on using Performance Over Time, please see our Support Article here.

Managing Investment Transactions

Although Investment Transactions should download when you connect your Investment Accounts in Simplifi, you can also easily add and edit transactions manually! Just like any account register in Simplifi, you can even sort and filter your Investment Account registers, search them, customize the columns, as well as bulk edit and delete the transactions displayed here.

Note: The ability to add attachments to Investment Transactions, include Investment Transactions in Reports and the Spending Plan (with the exception of cash flow transactions such as 'Payment/Deposit', which will show in Reports), as well as Export Investment Transactions, are currently not available. However, we are working on adding these abilities!

Performing Transfers To and From Investment Accounts

With Investment Transactions, you can now perform Transfers to and from your Investment Accounts! To do so, you'd select the sending/receiving account for the Category of the transactions, just as with any regular Linked Transfer.

To do so from the Investment Account directly, you'll want to select Payment/Deposit for the Type, and then select the other account for the Category. Please see our Support Article here for more details on using Transfers in Simplifi.
