What does an Assistant Vice President, IS Analysis do?

Financial analysts are responsible for tracking a company's financial performance against a plan, analyzing business performance and market conditions to create forecasts, and helping senior management make tactical and strategic decisions by providing periodic reports. However, not all financial analysts work with financial institutions or help their employers make investments. For example, a company may hire a financial analyst to measure the effectiveness of various marketing campaigns relative to cost.

Most financial analyst roles require a degree in accounting, economics, statistics, or business administration. Though not required, a CPA or an MBA may be preferred. A financial analyst should be very good with numbers and solving problems, and should be familiar with the workings of the economy, tax laws, and money markets.
