Fundamental Analysts at Quant Shops


I've seen some experienced fundamental analysts working at relatively high profile quant shops. What are the rationales for the quant shops to employ the fundamental analysts? What would be their primary responsibilities? Are they treated with "respect" (of course would be dependent on the culture)?

Thanks for the insights in advance.
