Job Description for Equity Analyst

An equity analyst oversees a company's investments, tracking investment data and making recommendations to managers. The nature of these investments vary from industry to industry, but could include real estate, stocks, or material goods. An equity analyst must analyze market trends, identify investments that hold good return-on-investment potential, and ensure that current investments are performing as desired. These investments may be spread over a wide company portfolio, and an equity analyst must be familiar with the many different company investments. The equity analyst may oversee investments in private funds, pension funds, charitable contributions, and other types of expenditure. On a schedule determined by the company, likely quarterly, an equity analyst is required to present data and findings to a team who will use the recommendations of the analyst to determine if any changes in company investments need to be made.
