Most financial databases assign industry codes to companies, for example based on the Standard Industry Classification (SIC) or the Industry Classification Benchmark (ICB). This helps you find companies in a particular industry.
Orbis offers a ‘Industry Codes Conversion’ tool: you enter for example a SIC code and you can get the NAICS code for the same industry.
You can find this tool in Orbis, under the Help button. Click Tools and select the tool.
First select the industry classification you want to use and enter the code(s) used in that industry classification.
In the next step, choose the industry classification(s) you want to convert to.
The results can look like this (when you click on the picture it will enlarge):
Please note: the ICB classification is not available in this conversion tool.
