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.
