Fractional Chief Finance Officer

What is a CFO's role and responsibilities?

A CFO, or Chief Financial Officer, is a senior executive responsible for managing the financial strategy and operations of an organisation. This includes overseeing financial planning, monitoring cash flow, analysing financial strengths and weaknesses, and proposing corrective actions. In addition to these fiscal responsibilities, the CFO typically plays a key role in company leadership, helping to shape the company’s overall strategy from a financial perspective. As businesses evolve in the digital age, CFOs also increasingly engage with data analytics, risk management, and strategic growth initiatives.​

Value a Fractional CFO can add

Financial expertise

Bring in-depth financial knowledge and strategy without the full-time commitment, ideal for businesses on a budget.

Strategic planning

Offer insights into business growth strategies, mergers, acquisitions, funding and potential investments.

Cash flow management

Ensure efficient management of funds, optimising operational costs and capital expenditures.

Risk mitigation

Identify potential financial risks and devise strategies to mitigate them effectively.

Operational efficiency

Streamline financial operations, implement modern financial systems, and ensure compliance with regulatory standards.

Experienced leadership support

Many of our CFOs have also been CEOs so can be a strong support and advisor to the CEO in running the business.
