This chapter elaborates on the role of the financial analysts for their host institution. It addresses the fact that, despite usually being presented as neutral observers and interpreters of the market, analysts have an active role in promoting investments. This active role shapes the everyday life of financial analysts and materializes in the way they think about investing activities. Also, in their role as animators, analysts actively influence market volatility and liquidity.

Keywords:   animators, conflict of interest, financial analysts, great transformation, intermediaries, liquidity, public discourse, regulation, volatility
