Keyword: Multi-Sector

Is a sector of the economy represented in a diversified portfolio by large conglomerate companies that own separate substantial business units, often unrelated to each other, and operating in more than one sector of the economy. Conglomerates are large and often multi-national corporations. They have become much less popular over the past years as it has become increasingly difficult to manage such large unrelated businesses effectively. Many of them have been broken into separate companies to increase value and management’s effectiveness.
