What is a Sell-Side Analyst? Meaning.

A Sell-Side Analyst is an investment research professional who typically works for a brokerage company selling investments such as stocks, bonds, futures or mutual funds to investors. These analysts often issue recommendations such as buy, outperform, market perform, neutral or sell. Such recommendations help their clients in their decision-making process to buy or sell certain securities. It is important to realize that these recommendations are also beneficial for the employer of the analyst because every time a client makes a decision to trade something, the brokerage gets a commission on the transactions.

This type of investment analysts give generic advice (blanket recommendations) that are not directed to a specific client with a particular investment strategy, but rather to the investment public as a whole.

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