A financial analyst is responsible for running the accounting and financial activities of an organisation. They analyse the economic stability of the company, and provide financial information to other departments, enabling these departments to make budgeting and investment decisions.
Wealth managers use their accounting and financial expertise to help clients grow their wealth. Serving as trusted consultants to high-net-worth individuals or families, they create strategic plans based on their clients’ objectives and financial profile, encompassing investments, insurance, mutual funds, trust and estate taxes, and retirement. Many wealth managers work in investment firms and banks, but it’s common for them to be self-employed.
Business analysts help companies improve process efficiencies through the analysis of past data and provide recommendation reports to executives and stakeholders.
Financial advisors are highly sought-after professionals in organisations as they provide guidance in meeting financial goals. Many financial planners decide to specialise and focus their practice in particular areas, such as superannuation, tax planning or debt management.
