diversity report should report on the region exposure of ETFs and sector classification of each ETFs underlying holdings

• What feature do you want to see in Sharesight?
The diversity report should report on the region exposure of the ETF rather than the domicile country.

Also sector allocation in the diversity report should report on the sector allocation of the underlying holdings within an ETF.

E.g. the ETF VGS is ~72% invested in the USA but the diversity report shows the “Country” as 100% “Australia” which is not very helpful.

VGS is also at least 10% apple, microsoft, facebook, google, but contributes 100% of it’s values to the “Miscellaneous” sector which is not very helpful.

• Why do you want it?
To be able to track my exposure to various countries and ensure it is in line with the targets of my investment plan.

• How is this affecting you?
Creates large amount of manual work to manually calculate country exposure and reduces the usefulness of a sharesight premium subscription.

• Do you currently have a workaround solution? If yes, what is it?
manual work to manually calculate country exposure from information on provider websites.

could also pay for an API that provides this information.

• Can we reach out in future to ask follow up questions about this idea?
