What Does a Financial Analyst Do?
Financial analysts do exactly what their title implies, as well as other duties. A financial analyst looks at possible financial transactions and determines the best possible outcomes, the worst case scenarios, and the best course of action. If the transaction is deemed a good risk, the analyst will put together a detailed research report for managers to follow so they can achieve the best financial outcome while avoiding as much of the risk as possible. If the transaction is deemed too risky, the analyst will create a report detailing the specific risks and why the transaction might not be worth it.
Along with analyzing possible transactions, financial analysts can also meet with clients and help them build financial portfolios that meet their investment needs. Some analysts teach other analyst or students of finance. On any given day a financial analyst might meet with a small customer, interact with other analysts or staff members, and present findings to the CEO of a company. At any point during the day, the financial analyst could be called upon to provide guidance on a variety of issues or financial matters, from understand financial reports to the risk of a certain stock.

Financial analysts produce financial plans, projections and analytical reports for use in investment decisions by companies, public and private organizations, and individuals. Depending on the type of analyst job, the duties can vary quite a bit.
Some financial analysts work in the securities industry analyzing stocks, bonds and other securities for banks, brokerages, money management firms, and other organizations. These financial analysts typically develop expertise in a narrow category of stocks or bonds, such as Canadian corporate bonds or technology stocks, for example.

A recent bachelor's degree graduate seeking to become a financial analyst can expect to begin in a junior position under the guidance of a senior analyst. After several years of experience, many junior financial analysts consider returning to graduate school for advanced degrees. While junior analysts are not barred from advancement, continuing progression to positions with greater responsibility usually necessitates returning to school. A graduate with a master's degree can expect to begin work as a senior financial analyst or rise to the position very quickly.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
