Sell-side Versus Buy-Side Compensation in Investment Banking Jobs (2015?—ed.)
The Australian had an amusing take on the ongoing feud between sell-side (brokerage) professionals and buy-side (fund managers). For years, the sell-side enjoyed better salaries and bonuses and overall compensation. While the buy-side fund managers enjoyed long lunches, golf days and other leisurely junkets to lure their business.

The joke from brokers was, “What’s the difference between a fund manager and a shopping trolley? You can fill both with food and drink but the trolley has a mind of its own.”
