Insights into how Buy-side distinguishes good Sell-side Analysts from the crowd

[Pls join our facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/Scholars.Springboard]

Dear all,

Some of you came to our “Insider Perspectives by buy-side/ sell-side analysts” event on 19 Feb 10 aimed to give you an insight into the life of buy-side/ sell-side analysts—their challenges and most rewarding part of their careers—which was well-attended by slightly more than 50ppl despite being in the first week of Chinese New Year festive period.

We know markets have been v choppy lately, and for people at the buy-side, it is important for us to know:

(1) How to distinguish a good sell-side analyst from mediocre ones;and

(2) How to differentiate an equity salesperson with substance from “empty vessels making lots of noise”.

This is why we are now doing this event to provide you with insights from junior portfolio managers on the following:-

  • How does buy-side and sell-side co-exist in this investment eco-system?
  • What qualities do portfolio managers perceive as essential for a good sell-side analyst?
  • What are the general methods used by portfolio managers to distinguish a good sell-side analyst/ salesperson from a mediocre one?
