Sector spread betting has now been around for more than 10 years, but the recent turmoil in financial markets which has seen some firms losing half their market valuation in months has highlighted the risks inherent to investing in individual shares. This is where betting on a sector can come in useful as it allows you to take a broader view. The way sector spreadbetting works is that an investor wins or loses depending on how a group of shares perform; you don't need to predict the share that is likely to outperform a sector; thus sectors empower investors to punt on broad trends.
