After creating a white paper, titled Sector / Industry Business Classification Study, GLX set out to create a better standard. As the white paper points out there are several major market data providers and federal agencies categorizing and classifying companies around the world. Our research indicates that market data providers dismiss a number of categories that would seemingly pertain to private entities and agencies. The US SIC code system and NAIC system are cumbersome and over complicated but will be included in company profiles on GLX.com. The white paper can be found at:

The GLX Sector-Industry Classifications (GSICs) system was developed by piggy-backing on the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) as a framework. GLX maintained the GICS structure but identified and added the uncovered categories of Government, and Non-Profit. GLX has also added a fifth layer of classification, which we call "Type of Entity", that is highly focused on industry designations within the Financials sector. The tabs herein give full detail to the overall hierarchy and taxonomy. GLX also changed the GICS label of Industry Group to Sub-Sector creating the labels below:

Sector ⇨ Sub-Sector ⇨ Industry ⇨ Sub-Industry ⇨ Type of Entity

The GICS is an industry taxonomy developed in 1999 and maintained by MSCI and Standard & Poor's (S&P) for use by the global financial community. The GICS structure consists of 11 sectors, 24 industry groups, 68 industries and 157 sub-industries into which S&P has categorized all major public companies. Further information can be found at:
