TASE Opens Supersectors

TASE industrial classifications have been adjusted to better reflect those employed in major markets abroad. Four supersectors have been defined: High Tech; Finance, Real and Financial Instruments. This division contributes to the strengthening of ties between the supersectors and TASE sectorial indices, highlights the variety of TASE equity listings, distinguishes financial instruments from shares and enables TASE to provide precise cumulative market cap, trading volume and other data for the various sectors. The classification into supersectors will commence and be published starting 3 November 2013. For the supersector classification click here
