A Financial Analyst is an expert who works on behalf of a banking or financial institution and for the benefit of clients. He collects as much information as possible about listed companies in order to provide them with the information they need to make successful investments. This information collection is done in different ways. The Financial Economist draws economic reviews and other useful documents, whether through the press, the Internet or audiovisual documentaries. In some cases, he may even come to the premises of the companies in question to discuss with the managers.
