An investment analyst provides research and information to help traders, fund managers and stock brokers make decisions about investments. The information they provide ensures investment portfolios are well managed and that potential investment opportunities are highlighted.
Some analysts work for investment management companies, providing information to in-house fund managers; others work for stockbrokers and investment banks, where their research is needed by portfolio managers or by clients who make their own investment decisions.
