A transaction portfolio enables you to build holdings (positions) in a set of instruments. See how to create a transaction portfolio.

Once created, you can load economic activity into a transaction portfolio by:

In some circumstances, LUSID may generate transactions for you, for example bond coupon transactions if you have automatic instrument lifecycle events turned on in your domain.

Note the following:

  • LUSID does not store instruments themselves in a transaction portfolio, but rather resolves transactions and other economic activity to instruments stored in the LUSID Security Master.
  • LUSID does not maintain a static record of your holdings in a transaction portfolio, but rather replays the history of economic activity on demand to calculate your live positions in affected instruments. This real-time holdings report is the primary input into portfolio valuations and profit and loss reporting in LUSID.
