A mix of Assets and Investments

Having decided following an earlier post that my pension fund best sat in the Asset category when it was a mix of funds that are not individually quoted per se, the fund has now extended to listed Securities and I have a dilemma!

I would like to track the Securities in the same way as I do my direct Shares as an Investment, but I'd also like it as a child to the pension fund which is an Asset - but I don't think that can be done?

In short, my ideal make up would be ...

Primary Asset = Pension Fund
Child Asset 1 = Funds
Child Asset 2 = Securities

Thoughts?

PS; is it likely that at some point Investments will also synch (to my iPad app)?

Thanks

    Your right it cannot be done, sorry.

    I had a similar issue with a fund where I could not readily get prices for the actual funds it comprises, it basically would have been a full time job to obtain or work out the data and enter it.

    I ended up creating it as an investment though and once a month work out a "unit price" for the fund as a whole and enter it. Ended up building a spreadsheet to do it just assumed that the initial transaction was at $1 per unit with the total price also reflecting the number of "units" purchased. With the spreadsheet if I do buys or sells during the month can work out the price just prior to the transaction based on the value of the fund. The value of the transaction divided by this pseudo price gives me the number of units, so I have the needed data to enter the transaction.
