Financial Analyst job
« on: October 28, 2012, 07:39:18 PM »
Hi sisses! may financial analyst po ba dito? gusto ko kasi malaman ang job description ng isang financial analyst kapag sa isang financial intitution / bank sya nagwo-work?? kasi sa mga outsourcing iba naman ang work ng financial analyst, so i dont really have an idea what if sa local financial institution ako mag-aapply ng ganun.. kapag nag-google naman ako, iba-iba din kasi, mostly sinasabi (foreign sites) they help daw gumawa ng investment decisions.. parang economists na din.. may nagsasabi din puro accounting naman or budgeting.. kaya naguguluhan ako, help naman mga sis.. kasi im planning to apply sa ganitong position pero i wanna make sure kung kaya ko ba muna o yun nga yung naiisip kong job description before trying out.. thanks in advance sa mga magrereply if ever.. :)

sis, did you apply already?  marami kasing iba ibang analyst.  'financial' kasi you have to deal with finances of the company, or ng i-invest-an. may business analyst din - where you look at the industry trends, etc.

know the job scope. kung baguhan ka, you can go for the entry level and work from there.

Hi Ironlady :)

I'm a CPA by profession and being a Financial Analyst is very common to us. Basically, pag analyst ka, it would be more on graphs, percentages (Cost of Sales to Revenue, Profit to Sales, Actual to budgeted cot), ratios (inventory/receivable turnovers), projections(budgeting based on prior month/year cost), analysis of accounts movements and analysis of indicators affecting the company or will be affecting the company. Here, you will be helping the management to decide what is best for the company or to improve the performance of the company like if you need to decrease or increase cost of a certain department, increase manpower to achieve the target sales and purchase equipment to speed up process.

For investment decisions, you will be doing cost benefit analysis, capital payment terms, returns and even how safe the investment is.
