### What do execution guys do in a quant hedge fund's pipeline?

Seems to me that quant research (statistical analysis and playing around with data) and engineers (maintain the libraries and other software that can help the fund make \$) are the big moneymakers in a quant hedgefund
1. Outside HFT, what in the pipeline do execution guys contribute to?
2. What does a day to day look like?
3. What is their interaction with quant research?
4. Do they sit in Quant vs mid-office w/ ops?
Thanks
