People "on the Street" distinguish between quants and structurers. Who are the structurers? what do they do?

Voting to close as off topic. Job and other institutional questions like this are not within the scope. As an example: meta.quant.stackexchange.com/questions/51/… That being said, you could ask an appropriate question about structuring, but you would need to provide context/detail. –  Shane Feb 9 '11 at 22:04
    
Seconded, this is not a helpful question. –  Dirk Eddelbuettel Feb 9 '11 at 22:11

Then why "What is a Quant" is acceptable? –  quant_dev Feb 10 '11 at 12:36

Well,

Structurers are simply guys that actually have something to sell.

They (usually) try to identify if their clients have some complex balance sheet problems, or risks to hedge, or returns to get, and propose them Structured Products" that can fit those problematic.
