Explanation of content

Below you can find detailed information about the sections of the account statement:

In the Account Information category you will find general information about your securities account.

NameNames of all account holders.
AccountAccount number.
Customer typeOwnership structure of the account (individual account, joint account, corporate account, etc.).
Account permissionsType of account management (cash account or margin account).
Base currencyDisplay currency of your account.

The Net Asset Value (NAV) is the total value of your account.

NAV ChangeThis lists the individual values that contribute to a change in NAV.
Time-Weighted ReturnThis computes a performance linked only to the account holder’s actions, unaffected by account size fluctuations like deposits and withdrawals. The displayed time-weighted return does not reflect the account’s value percentage change.
Portfolio AnalystIf you wish to have detailed analysis of the performance of your account, you can use the Portfolio Analyst. This is available for your real money deposit account.

This section shows the changes in value of your positions based on daily closing prices.

Considerations of Mark-to-Market (MTM) show how much profit or loss has been generated during the period, regardless of whether positions are open or closed. Transactions to open or close positions are not reconciled using this method. MTM calculations assume that all open positions and transactions are settled at the end of each day and new positions are opened the next day. It does not include profit or loss considerations from position closure. These can be found in the Transactions section.

In column Position, you can see the value change of each position based on the final curse. Here, the difference between your position from the first to the last available final curse is displayed.

When you carry out a transaction, usually there is already a profit or loss during the trading day. The difference between the transaction price and the final curse of the day is captured in the column Transaction.

Commissions and other costs (total amounts of dividends, withholding tax, profit and loss from capital measures, coupons, and accrued bond interest) are also moved to separate columns since they cannot be captured by the difference in security closing prices.

In this section, you will find an overview of your profits and losses divided by security class and underlying asset.

This table is divided into realized and unrealized gains and losses. The realized gains and losses are converted into the base currency on the day of position closure. Unrealized gains and losses are converted into the base currency using the last currency closing rate of the reporting period.

The columns Profit and Loss show the cumulative gains and losses respectively. The totals of gains and losses are displayed in the Total columns. The last column summarizes both realized and unrealized gains and losses.

S/T stands for Short Term and refers to positions held for less than 365 days.

L/T stands for Long Term and refers to positions held for more than 365 days.

Cost Adj. indicates adjustments made to the cost basis. In the case of tax-free dividend payments or capital repayments (Return of Capital), the cost basis of the position is adjusted. Thus, the capital repayment is only taken into account for tax purposes when the position is closed.

With the cash report, you can track the changes in your cash balances.

In this overview you will find the turnovers and movements of your cash. For this purpose, the cash report is separated according to your currencies In the upper area you’ll get a total overview, converted into base currency

Gain/loss from cash currency conversion

The actual (realized) gains or losses can only be determined once the foreign currency position has been closed. The amount reported under Gain/loss on foreign currency translation is therefore not an actual realized gain or loss.

To determine the actual (realized) gain/loss from cash currency conversion, the difference between the exchange rates of the current and previous period is formed and multiplied by the opening balance.

The closing exchange rate for CHF on 01/14/20XX was 0.83264 and on 01/15/20XX this value was 1.00170. According to the above calculation, this results in a difference of 0.16906.

If we multiply this value by the cash opening balance (e.g.: CHF -10,000.00), this results in a cash FX translation loss of EUR -16,906.00 for the foreign currency CHF.

Provided that we apply the same calculation to the other foreign currency holdings, the sum of the individual values for each foreign currency will result in the total amount reported for 01/15/20XX for the Cash FX Translation Gain/Loss item.
