Suggestions / Re: Asset Allocation Reporting
« Last post by Matt Willms on November 13, 2017, 01:36:12 PM »
Dan,

We already offer a 'stock size' allocation as you are requesting for level 2.  That is, when you are on the home page | level 2 allocation tab, you'll notice the add'l tab for sector/size allocations.  You can then use the radio button to choose the view by either sector, or size. You can also review these from the reports menu | level 2 allocation reports.

Our soon to be released new Professional v3 offers the ability for developed and emerging markets.

Hope this helps.  If you have add'l questions, please contact our support team directly at: techsupport@investmentaccountmanager.com

Suggestions / Asset Allocation Reporting
« Last post by djschultz on November 11, 2017, 10:27:17 AM »
I like the addition of Level 2 asset allocation reporting and the detail it provides.  To better manage the stock allocations, however, add a "Level 3" asset allocation report, using the portfolio allocation breakdowns to show Large, Mid, and Small cap stock allocations.  In addition, a breakdown of International stock allocations between Developed and Emerging Markets would be helpful.

Transactions / Re: correction of 401(k) over-witholding
« Last post by Matt Willms on November 09, 2017, 09:10:05 AM »
We don't have any such transaction entry...but you can use the sale activity since this is in a non taxable 401k, so the gains/losses are not relevant.  Or, perhaps more easily, you could simply delete the original activity, and re-enter correctly.

If you have add'l questions, please let us know.

Transactions / correction of 401(k) over-witholding
« Last post by ksakers on November 05, 2017, 10:10:10 AM »
My 401(k) provider exceeded the cap on my annual contributions.  To correct this, they issued a “negative adjustment” for the amount of the overage.  However, the number of shares removed is at a share price that is different than the price at which the shares were originally purchased.  Therefore, I cannot just modify the original transaction for a purchase of fewer shares, because it will result in a different number of total shares than what is actually in the account, producing a tracking error.  I think that a separate, additional transaction is needed, similar to a sale, but non-taxable.  A Return of Capital does not seem to adjust the share count.

Is this the right approach?  If so, what type of transaction can I use to deduct shares from the account at a specified price, like a sale but non-taxable?

Support / Re: Broker Download won't work for Fidelity; finally works with Schwab.

Ed, 

Sounds as if something has changed with your broker access.  Are you able to download, if you do a test using the portfolio setup wizard, your current holdings from Fidelity?  We haven't heard of any issues from other users, and since this did work as recently as later August, might be a change due to your accounts/fidelity.  As for Schwab, they recently changed their servers, and are aware of the issue.  They are working on solutions for all Schwab customers.  If you contact them to whitelist your IP address, should work faster for you until they have a global fix.

If you have add'l questions, please contact our support team at 262-241-3990 or email techsupport@investmentaccountmanager.com

Support / Broker Download won't work for Fidelity; finally works with Schwab.
« Last post by edaskew on September 25, 2017, 10:48:21 AM »
I had initially been able to download my transactions from both of these brokers, with no problem, up until August 26th.  However when I tried to update this month, I was not able to do so on either my Schwab accounts or Fidelity accounts.  After having a lot of trouble with Schwab, finally I was able to get 2 of my accounts to update after trying repeatedly, then this morning the last one finally updated.  I kept getting this error message "an error occurred" during the update, or "PIN lockout" or something like that.  With Fidelity, I know the program is able to log into my account because I once removed the account number and it was able to repopulate the number.  It will say "download complete" but no transactions are downloaded, despite the fact there are probably 20 transactions at least.  I changed my passwords for both brokerages and also on IAM.  I checked the firewall log, and Bitdefender is not blocking it.  I turned the firewall off and got the same results.  I'm running version 3.0.7 on Windows 10.

I figured it out... after transferring the security between portfolios, then you can do a Tender/Exchange of "security A" for "security B" in the new portfolio.  No gain/loss recognized.  It works swimmingly!

Transactions / Re: IRA rollover into 401(k)
« Last post by ksakers on August 09, 2017, 08:53:49 PM »
Matt,

This was a good suggestion, and I wish to share the outcome for the benefit of future readers.  This action did transfer the security from the IRA portfolio to the 401(k) portfolio, as advertised.  But what occurred in the real-life rollover transaction is that "security A" held in the IRA was sold, with the proceeds used to purchase "security B" in the 401(k).  The transfer of value from "security A" to "security B", in addition to transferring from one portfolio to another (without realizing a gain or loss), is what I am trying to capture within IAM - not simply moving "security A" from one portfolio to another. 

Many thanks,

  kevin

Kevin,

Use the edit menu | transfer a security choice to transfer each position from the IRA portfolio to the 401k portfolio...
