Definition Buy-Side Analyst. Description.

A Buy-Side Analyst is an investment professional who is typically employed in the research department of a Mutual Fund or Pension Fund that is buying investments for its own accounts. Their research is often used internally by Portfolio Managers, and is normally not distributed outside the firm.

They give more specific advice then sell side analysts, because they determine how promising an investment is in relation to the fund's investment strategy.

This type of investment analyst contrasts with a Sell-Side Analyst.
