Financial Analysis Skills Test

Financial analysis is the process of assessing the performance and suitability of companies, projects, budgets, and other financial operations. Financial analysis is typically done to determine whether a company is stable, solvent, liquid, or profitable enough to warrant a financial investment.

​​The financial analysis test is a pre-employment assessment used by recruiters to evaluate a candidate's knowledge and proficiency in various financial analysis topics. The test usually consists of multiple-choice questions and covers topics such as financial ratios, financial statement analysis, valuation techniques, risk management, and forecasting. The test is designed to assess a candidate's ability to analyze financial data and make informed decisions based on that analysis. It is often used for hiring roles such as financial analyst, investment banker, portfolio manager, and other finance-related positions.
