Employment Outlook: Financial Analysts

The position of Financial Analyst is one of the job titles in particularly high demand among finanical jobs in America and among International finance jobs 2010. The US Department of Labor provides an outlook for the future of this position through approximately 2020 that indicates an increase in positions.


Employment prospects for Financial Analysts is predicted to grow much faster than average when compared with the growth for all local jobs in America. One drawback to this outlook is that there is intense competition for these jobs, because they are high-paid and provide room for significant advancement in the long-term career.

The US Federal Government predicts that the level of financial investment in the country will increase through approximately 2020. This is expected to increase the demand for financial analysts 20%. Reasons for this large growth are given as complexity and global diversification of investments that require highly qualified workers; along with increases in assets under professional management overall.

An increase is expected in the number and variety of mutual and hedge funds, with the amounts of money to be invested expanding as well. This becomes overwhelming and companies need expert help in determining their best and most effective investments, especially in global international investing.


The outlook for the job title of Personal Financial Advisor is similar to that of its business counterpart, Financial Analyst, listed above, but with the growth rate expected to be higher, at 30% increase. Indeed, this position is already among the highest demand jobs listed in some of the fastest growing cities and towns in America.

      Interesting discussion on temp accounting jobs. There are many new ways for accounting professionals to find temporary/contract work outside of the traditional temp agency method which can be rather costly. Such alternatives are: online job boards, online classifieds, freelancer marketplaces, and on line communities of flexible professionals.
