Beware of the job duties. A lot of people hire do-all accountants and call them a financial analysts but you will just have to figure out the closing entires when the mouth breather in the individual accounting departments can’t handle it

Following, wanted to make the same transition

Speaking from experience, this 100% depends on what the job entails. Depending on the industry and size of company, this can be anything from do-all accountant, to analyzing different revenue streams and instructing accounting on how to correct previous JEs, to high-level analysis (liquidity analysis, investments analysis, ALM, Board Reports, monthly & annual budgets, etc.). Beware of actual job duties and compensation.

But to answer your question, the transition should be relatively easy. There shouldn't be a high learning curve. If there is, it should be mitigated proportionally to how much experience you have.
