    Default Who chooses a company's sector?

    Can anyone point me to information about how companies are classified into sectors, and who does it?

    Just realised ASIC would be a good place to start looking so I'll go there. Any other ideas?

    Default Re: Who chooses a company's sector?

    Yes, the ASX will have the classification. The acronym for the system is GICS (it was implemented recently if I recall correctly?) Global Industry Classification Standard. There must be a link or something under that heading.... okay went to the asx site and found the link to S&P and the GICS info.


    There are a few booklets with the relevant info at the Standard&Poor's site.

    I bet you've found this out already!

    My posts are not recommendations (even when I rave about something). Always rely on your own research & judgement.
