General Information.Sectors definition

Listed companies traded on the SIBE electronic platform or traded on the floor of the four exchanges in Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao and Valencia, are grouped together under a unified classification for sectors and sub-sectors. This classification was reorganized on 1 January 2005.

The new classification comprises 6 sectors:

  • Petrol and power

  • Basic materials, industry and construction

  • Consumer goods

  • Consumer services

  • Financial services and real estate

  • Technology y Telecommunications

A second tier has been established under which the activities of listed companies is broken down into sub-sectors. This allows the addition of new sub-sectors as appropriate without altering the composition of the 6 basic sectors.
