We believe that importing and managing your entire portfolio is a crucial first step to getting the most out of the platform. As you add more of your net worth, the value of the analysis, recommendations, and other insights goes up. This tutorial covers how to add net worth components, connect external accounts, add manual portfolios, and view all your accounts together in one place.

Net worth

As part of a comprehensive view of your portfolio, we allow you to import real estate, investment accounts, retirement accounts, private equity, cash, and cryptocurrencies. Navigate to the Net Worth page to manage your various portfolios by clicking your name -> "Net Worth" tab. You can also get to this page by clicking on the "Connected accounts (#)" button on the left sidebar.

Net worth tab in My Account

To update one of these net worth items, you can simply click on "Edit" on the right side of the page. If you click on "Edit" next to Real estate, you will get a pop-up that looks like this:

Connected accounts

In order to receive the most up-to-date insights about what's happening in your accounts, you can link your institutions through our trusted partners: Plaid, Yodlee, or SnapTrade. We never store your credentials, and intentionally only have read-access to your accounts so that you always stay in control of every investment decision.

Scroll down to the "Connected accounts" section

Click on the three dots on the right to edit or disconnect the account.

Click on "Add account" to add a new connected account, copy/paste your portfolio using Easy Portfolio Upload, or manually add your portfolio one ticker at a time. We typically see users with ~20 securities in a portfolio take about 2min to manually import their account.

Net Worth Portfolio

The "Net Worth portfolio" combines the accounts that you have into a single view so that you can think about your net worth holistically. We believe that analyzing your accounts in an aggregated way lets you properly assess risk, returns, diversity, tail risks, and make improvements that grow your entire net worth rather than treating everything like an individual bucket.

Green dots indicate active connections, while red dots indicate a stale connection, and lack of a dot denotes a manually input portfolio.

"Externally managed" means the account is a Robo-Advisor or managed by a professional portfolio manager

"Tax-free" indicates the account is tax-advantaged, like a retirement account (e.g. Roth IRA, 401k, RRSP, RESP, etc)

Draft portfolios

We have built the Draft Portfolio feature for you to be able to accept recommendations, experiment with different strategies, and improve your portfolio. See the Drafts tab of the "Net worth" page for a collection of all of your draft portfolios, allowing you to edit or delete each one individually. Read more about using Draft Portfolios here.
