Entry level positions might be automated, because they involve a lot of data entries which any person with a solid knowledge of Python can automate. However, more advanced positions that require more social, analytical, skills that require good decision making won't be automated soon.

robots make terrible financial analysts.

a machine can be fed information, divide it based on rules you've set for it, but it cannot make decisions or influence others because of political and socioeconomic trends.

In the company I work for, Financial Analyst positions have been already moved to other location where the salaries are lower. Also, Sales and Cash Flow are now being predicted using Artificial Intelligence
