Blog Plan

January 24, 2009

It’s been a long time coming for this blog. I have had a lot to wrestle with with regards to plans for this blog. Initially, I wanted to take it down the investment management route, by analyzing companies which exhibit strong values. This (old) plan was intended with the motive to compliment the CFA exam (which I was planning to complete). However, life has gotten a little too busy and I have had to drop those plans.

As things stand right now, I plan to introduce, not only to myself but also my readers the significance of understanding industry analysis. In this regard, the best place to start would be using the GICS (Global Industry Classification Standard) classification of industries and sectors. GICS classification is really great. Even when I didn’t understand any sector, it was easy enough for me to get a general idea about the respective sector just by glancing at the GICS classification map. I hope my journey through understanding industries, and beyond that whatever the future holds, is fruitful for all of us.
