Buy-side Research is a type of securities research. Buy-side research analysts work for institutional investors such as mutual funds, pension funds, hedge funds, proprietary trading operations of banks and brokers, endowments, and/or insurance companies. They perform research and provide recommendations solely for the advantage of the money managers of the company, not individual investors; this information is not available to anyone outside the firm. Buy-side analysts keep their research private, unlike sell-side analysts whose work is available to the public by way of published research reports.
