What do Equity and Research Analysts do?
Equity Analysts carry out studies of industry groups or individual companies and their securities. They also develop forecasts and issue recommendations for sales purchases.
Research analysts combine a sharp analytical mind with excellent communication and presentation skills. They prepare written communications on the purchase, sale or holding securities for institutional clients through the firms’ sales force and through direct client contact. They facilitate client access to companies’ management through roadshows, visits, phone calls, conferences, field trips and more.
