The SIC code problem

Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes, last updated in 2007, are outdated and misaligned with today’s dynamic industries like FinTech and AI. This rigid, one-size-fits-all system leads to misclassification, vague insights and missed opportunities.

Organisations relying on SIC codes face costly, time-consuming manual searches without real-time data. Our RTICs offer a modern solution, providing accurate insights that truly reflect the current business landscape.
