Everything you need to know about portfolio tracker

by Pankhudi Dave Head Finance Manager
A portfolio tracker is a program or service which allows an investor to trace the movements of their individual holdings. They can see how their current allocation stacks up with their long-term goals and get an idea of how their portfolio is doing compared to the rest of the market. They can also add portfolios from their investment accounts or create manual portfolios to test out different strategies.
Checking the investments too frequently can also lead to excessive trading, but if they want to keep their asset allocation on the right path, a portfolio tracker is a simple and effective way of monitoring it. Before beginning the process of trading an investor should check the trading faqs to clear out the doubts they may have about the process of trading. A lot of brokerages have some sort of tracking and research tool, but they can only use accounts affiliated with that broker. With a portfolio tracker, an individual can better analyze their total allocation and formulate a more pointed strategy.

Keeping track of the performance of multiple investments and consolidating them in a single location for quick and easy access is time-consuming and a hassle. A portfolio tracker helps in managing and analyzing the investment portfolio across different asset classes such as equities, mutual funds, FDs, loans, real estate, derivatives, borrowings and commodities etc.
