Outsource financial analysts to the Philippines


What is a financial analyst?

A financial analyst is responsible for examining and interpreting the financial data of an organisation. They provide business recommendations to management based on market research and economic conditions; providing a course of action to minimise these risks and maximise gains.

Financial analysts duties and tasks can include:

  • Providing reporting, interpreting and forecasting support to management
  • Producing year round reports illustrating key financial variances and metrics
  • Assisting with budgeting and forecasting
  • Financial analysis of data to identify business opportunities
  • Developing and creating financial models to assist with decision making.

These analytical tasks are particularly well-suited to being outsourced as they are repetitive and rules-based, requiring a high level of attention to detail. Organisations free up their local finance teams time by sending financial tasks to outsourced financial analysts. This allows your onshore team to focus on performing revenue generating work.


What key skills and qualifications make a financial analyst?

Financial analysts and financial advisors are slightly different. Larger organisations often have more financial data to interpret, while smaller businesses don’t. Smaller organisations often combine both roles to save on costs in the long term; outsourced services provide a solution to this problem. Financial analysts track a businesses financial performance against a set plan, and to do this effectively; they require certain skills.

Outsourcing services recruit financial analysts the same way an internal, talent acquisition team would. Essentially, they ask the same questions to understand whether these offshore candidates would be able to provide the level of quality required by Australian organisations:

  • What experience and knowledge do you have in interpreting complex financial data and analysing business plans?
  • What are your problem-solving and financial literacy skills like?
  • How do you ensure excellent communication when sourcing, researching and collating data across organisational departments?
  • What organisation techniques do you use to ensure you keep track of relevant information pertaining to business recommendations?
  • Provide an example of how you showcased a high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
  • What accounting and analytical systems are you familiar with?

In terms of qualifications, a higher education degree or certificate in economics, finance or statistics is desirable. Financial analysts require high level numeracy and accounting skills as they are constantly interpreting financial data. Outsourcing companies can help you find the right candidate to meet your organisation’s analytical requirements:

  • Whether you are looking to train a financial analyst from the ground up and teach them your business's way of interpreting data, or
  • Whether you are seeking expertise and a team of financial analysts with certifications and higher education.
