Industrials is a broad, international sector consisting of around six sub-sectors across nearly every geographic region.
We therefore try to take a holistic approach to our research, with waterfront coverage of the UK listed stocks seen as a starting point. In addition, we monitor a large number of international companies which gives us valuable read across, and enables us to put UK equity stories into wider context in a way that differentiates us from our peers. We pride ourselves on our long-standing relationships with companies and management teams across the sector, and being able to bridge the gap between them and the international investor base.

The factor that stands out most, in our view, is the pricing backdrop. The near uniformity in application and the shortening of put-through periods, coupled with more frequent price adjustments, highlights the pivotal role the sector has in the global supply chain.
