There are many ways and methods used for financial analysis and finance professionals love to delve deep into them. If you ask a financial analyst what one of the biggest parts of their job is, they’ll most likely answer with a resounding “Excel!”.

Over the past few decades Microsoft Excel has entrenched itself as an analyst’s go to tool, with research data ultimately ending up on an excel worksheet. Why a financial analyst loves it so much is simple. Excel offers all-in-one suite framework to build financial models and make it easier for analysts to discover and share certain patterns in the data. If planned and prepared meticulously, Excel sheets can be a hefty tool for calculations and mass data processing. Common analysis features include data manipulation, formatting, pivot tables, lookup functions, and valuation equations. However, managing all these inputs in Excel can be tricky, and the process of getting data into excel is often a laborious and manual task that results in analysts spending most of their valuable time in data collection rather than analysis. But this is not the case with EquityRT’s Excel add in which has quickly become its most loved feature. At EquityRT, we are working to make the financial analyst’s job much easier.
