We financial analysts are also responsible for keeping track of a company’s financial plan. Analyzing the company’s performance, alongside changes and market trends, not only helps the analyst create forecasts, but also allows them to calculate variances between those forecasts and actuals. It is the analysts’ job to track down and explain the causes of these variances.
