SA Sector categorises all listed instruments into one of three sectors, namely Resources, Financials and Industrials, based on their revenue. The SA sector classification is derived from the Industry Classification Benchmark (ICB) as follows:​
 

  • SA Resources – All Share constituents that belong to ICB Industries: Basic Materials (55) and Energy (60)
  • SA Financials – All Share constituents that belong to ICB: Financials (30) and Real Estate (35)
  • SA Industrials – All remaining companies, i.e.: All Share constituents that do not belong to ICB Industries: Financials (30), Real Estate (35), Basic Materials (55) and Energy (60)

SA Sector indices split the All Share Index constituents according to their SA Sector classification​.​​
