Industry and Sector Risk Advisory
The industry clusters are groups of B&M analysts devoted to covering specific (or any combination of) industries and sectors popular with investors, spanning multiple African cities, states, countries, and regions.
B&M’s seven industry clusters provide clients with timely analysis on economic, political, security, and social developments affecting an industry, and forecast the impact of these developments on a client’s bottom-line.
For example, B&M currently monitors and forecasts risks threatening the multiple sectors represented in a renowned fund consisting 50 African securities.
In addition to regional and geographic coverage, B&M provides industry-specific political, economic, social and security risk research, monitoring, analysis, and forecasting, focusing especially on sectors popular with international investors, including Banking & Financial Services, Precious Metals (Gold, Platinum Group Metals and Silver), Energy (Oil, Gas and Coal), Minerals & Other Metals, Telecommunications, Diamonds, and Agribusiness
