In your question, you ask about a fund's sector distribution.  How is that any different than the sector distribution of a fund.  The man's red car = the red car of the man. 


I checked a couple dictionaries, Elaine.  They list sectoral as the adjective form.  That said, you should pay attention to industry jargon.  If everyone else calls it sector distribution, I wouldn't rock the boat with sectoral distribution.
