Depending on the way the trustee/custodian does the accounting valuation for the plan there may not be a way to "show you the transactions".

The capital gains transactions may not be specifically posted to your specific account if the dividends are used to increase unit value. Suggestion: Would you feel more comfortable if you could see the capital gains cash receipt & reinvestment transactions posted to the "commingled trust account" which holds all the assets of all the participants?

I know from other posts that you are trying to get an explanation from your custodian of the methodology used and are coming up against a brick wall.
