Hi John,

We currently only have sector data for US stocks. The Sector factor used in the notebook you shared is built on top of our Morningstar Fundamental data integration, which only includes US data. However, we are currently working on adding international sector data from FactSet. Stay tuned for an announcement in the community once it's added.

Hi Jamie, any updates on sector data for FactSet data?

Hello guys,
Since there is no support for International stocks on the Sector() classifier, I have created my own CustomClassifier for Brazilian equities (589 symbols).
The sectors was scraped from Morningstar web site (PETR3 example), the sector code mapping can be found on (quantopian docs)

Nothing fancy, needs some improvement, but works fine.

Hope it helps!
