Foreign Investments

New year new updates coming no doubt.

Due to travel for work I've built a large investment on overseas markets....
I'm easily able to add foreign investments and update prices in a google sheets document I track these overseas investments with.

eg. LON:IWDA calls the up to date info for iShares Core MSCI World UCITS ETF USD (Acc)

Is it really so difficult for Quicken to be able to do so to?

    Sorry, Quicken's quote provider for the US only has quotes for US exchanges. If you set up the Google sheet to save the prices in an appropriate CSV format, you can import them into Quicken.

    You will need a separate account in Quicken for each currency you want to support.

    In my opinion the difficulty has nothing to do with it.

    It is quite simple, you might get quotes for free from Google, but a business like Quicken Inc can't, they have to pay for it.  And so, they have to weigh that price against the needs of their target customers, which mostly don't have investments in foreign exchanges.  Not to mention that there is a price for every exchange, and where they might satisfy X number of customers by paying for say the London exchange, others would want other exchanges all over the world.
