From the Collaborative Bond and Money Market Data Portal
The Government - Sovereign, or Sovereign Government Industry Sector consists of entities that are the State. State governments have sovereignty and supreme authority over a country and thus can set regulations and administration that impacts the whole state.
The Industry Sector is a classification that describes the activity of an entity within the economy. The classification is based on where the relevant entity derives the majority of its revenue.
In the Collaborative Bond and Money Market Data Model the Sovereign Government Sector appears within the Industry Sector Type: Government.
CMDportal uses industry sector classifications both at the Legal Entity level, as well as at the Group level. At the Legal Entity level the entity is classified by their actual industry activity. Accordingly, we classify a government corporation that is part of a sovereign government as a government corporation at the entity level but at the group level as for example a "Government - Sovereign.”
