Sector Analysis: A Framework for Investors

The key to a company’s success depends on how well it executes its business model. This calls for optimising the allocation of limited resources to generate sustainable cash flows, for investing in new products, technologies, and services in responding to the wider competitive landscape or societal changes and mega trends, as well as for devising appropriate responses in the face of an evolving macroeconomic, regulatory, and political environment.

Different industries often require very different business models; and even within the same industry, the model that does add value to the business may vary somewhat from company to company.

To help investors undertake proper due diligence on a company, CFA Institute has generated a framework of analysis designed to tease out whether the pertinent factors favour the firm in question, and  whether management is effective in executing its business model or value-generating strategies, while responding appropriately to its external environment.

The series of articles addresses individual sectors and incorporates interviews with professionals within those sectors.
