Financial Analyst

  A person who is skilled at examining financial instruments and determining their underlying characteristics. Financial analyst's do not actually create financial instruments - they `merely' analyse them. To add to the confusion many financial engineers have official titles such as financial analyst. See also Financial Engineer.
