We investigate the abilities of buy-side analysts by analyzing nontraditional mutual funds that are exclusively managed by in-house analysts rather than traditional portfolio managers. Analysts exhibit stronger general and job-specific investment abilities than traditional managers from within and outside the fund family. Using holdings of analystrun funds as a proxy for the analysts' best ideas, we document that more-skilled portfolio managers rely on analysts' ideas from the same family to a lesser extent than less-skilled managers. We find that analysts' abilities matter in that they are positively related to the future performance of other funds within the same family.
