Job Description for Business Analyst, Finance/Banking

A business analyst is someone who scrutinizes the financial aspects of the business and determines if there are any changes that could be made to make the business more successful. A successful analyst needs a detailed mind that is able to analyze data and come to conclusions based on this data. Based on these conclusions the analyst makes recommendations and changes to improve the business.
