Sensitive industries exposure on demand

Keeping on top of sensitive industries exposure has moved up the agenda in the past few years yet it remains a complex web of regulator and government rules that cover listed and unlisted, public and private issuers across a growing list of industries beyond the traditional ones of defence, banking, energy, transportation, aerospace, telecoms and media.

Rules often come with little guidance; can relate to specific industries, issuers, investor types; and an endless matrix of sub-categories. Single investments can be impacted by a myriad of each and rules might apply to all shareholders or just foreign ones. 

With the investor responsible for determining whether a company is in a sensitive industry, senior stakeholders keen to know exact exposure and with thresholds tightening and changing, sensitive industries monitoring is problematic to say the least.
