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.

Financial analyst roles are available in public practice, the corporate and public sectors, financial services and shared service organisations.

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)
