Analysts will frequently be called upon to write notes on an industry or a company that the bank’s corporate finance teams are working with – for example, during the run-up to an initial public offers (IPO), which is when a company first issues and sells shares. They provide a fixed return to investors through interest payments, and, just as there are analysts who specialise in shares, so there are also analysts who specialise in bonds. Credit ratings analysts are therefore effectively credit risk analysts, a trade of its own (see Credit risk officer ).

As a result, bond analysts working for a bank play a very different role from equity analysts. Bond analysts are looking to advise customers on whether interest rates will change, in which case the price of every bond in the market also changes.
