Investing by Industry or Market Sector employs non-emotional, numbers driven, value-based industry, sector, and country rotation techniques, that, unlike conventional stock picking methods, focuses instead on identifying and capitalizing on theme movements in the well identified industries & market sectors.
Primarily, this active-asset methodology recognizes that advances in financial markets are defined by "themes", or led by asset classes, industries, and countries, with each advance distinguished by specific sector-driven themes. Employing a disciplined research and valuation process these "themes" are identified so that Portfolio's can be created and/or adjusted toward the most attractive sectors.
