Technology Sector Strategy


BCA's dedicated Technology Sector Strategy service focuses on providing in-depth sub-sector analysis. The goal of this service is to provide detailed micro and macro investable themes within the technology sector.

Competitive Advantage
  • BCA's technology research service is one of a kind, marrying BCA's top-down technology research with our Senior Technology Strategist's extensive bottom-up expertise.
  • BCA's time-tested macro analysis is backed by its considerable research team – a staff of 65 –, drawing on the firm's incredible wealth of data.
  • Our Technology Sector Strategy service is unique in the industry, as our research is completely unbiased. Unlike all other technology research services in the marketplace, our firm does not manage money, nor is it a broker dealer.
