If they hire you, they will pay you a good salary each month. And they will have additional expenses, connected to your recruitment, training, orientation.
Employers need a good reason to hire you, and they give you a chance to provide one.
Many people try to come up with a unique answer to this question. In my experience, however, it’s not always important to seek uniqueness. Showing that you understand what matters in this job, and that you can perform, is what counts at the end. Let’s have a look at some answers.

My experience in the area of financial analysis stands out. I am constantly watching new trends, reading reports and analysis. I always create reports that are easy to read and practical for the management. That is the reason why you should hire me, since I can bring an actual value to your team.
Always playing for a team, my proactive approach and enthusiasm sets a good example for other people in the office. I believe that you can benefit from having me on board, but obviously, you need to decide about it on your own.
Do not forget that your non-verbal communication should correspond with your interview answers. If you were looking bored in an interview, you would hardly convince the recruiters about having motivation and enthusiasm for the job of an analyst….
