External CFO

External CFO

Would you like financial leadership without the cost of a finance executive? To lift your team and boost performance? And your team financial savviness?  To provide advice and guidance in all aspects of managing and growing a business?

Financial management, which goes hands-in-glove with all strategic, commercial and operational activities in all aspects of your business, is one the of the top reasons of startup failures.

What is most needed has been cost prohibitive and out of reach for small business. Entrepreneurs and businesses with a financial compass is like a bird with one wing – left floundering at whims of chances.

Until now.

We bring 30 years of experience managing complexities at large corporates and small to medium businesses to servicing your business.  With us, you can now access financial capabilities of large corporates without the big costs.

With our External CFO service, you can get the financial counsel and mentoring that your business needs as needed and when needed, at a fraction of the cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the minimum commitment for a CFO engagement?

It can be as little as 1 day per month or per quarter.

Is the minimum a fixed commitment regardless of actual usage?

The minimum is mainly for limiting your commitment while giving you access to the fixed fee structure, which is significantly lower than the  on-demand rate.  It does not restrict your access – we are here to help wherever help is needed. 


What happens to the unders and overs of usage?

We bill at the net time it takes for each activities.  You will get a summary of actual usage at the end of each billing period. Any unused time from the minimum commitment are rolled forward. Excess usage will be billed at the end of the billing period.

What happens when I have a requirement outside the agreed scope?

We will be glad to support any additional requirements.  As always, we will agree on the scope of work and fee before commencing service activities.  We strive to provide clarity and certainty of cost as far as possible.
