Financial Quantitative Analysts


Faster than average employment growth is expected for financial analysts overall through 2026, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH). As the economy strengthens, business investments will continue to grow. Demand for quantitative analysts will increase due to the increasingly complex nature and wide variety of financial products and investment options. Demand for quantitative analysts will also increase as "big data" continues to grow and financial technology continues to change and improve. Companies will need analysts to help them make investment decisions that are best for their businesses. Despite the positive outlook for employment, the competition for quantitative analyst positions will be keen. Financial quantitative analysts with advanced degrees, certification, and work-related experience will have the edge in the job market.
