Become an expert in a breadth of relevant factors affecting organisations
What is a financial analyst?
As a financial analyst you’ll be analysing a lot more than figures. Business decisions require in-depth understanding of a much wider range of factors, such as economic conditions and sector trends. For example, your insight could support key leadership decisions such as whether to buy or sell a company’s stock based on its overall strength.
How do I achieve it?
You can enter financial analysis as a graduate in a junior or supervised role, or can move into it after gaining relevant experience. Those interested in this career will also benefit from taking the following ACCA Strategic Professional Options exams:
- Advanced Performance Management (APM)
- Advanced Taxation (ATX)
