What does Preferred CFO’s tagline “The Confidence of Knowing” mean?

Every major business decision is based on information—historical data, projections, evidence, industry experience, and so on.

At Preferred CFO, our CFOs are data experts. Their experience and knowledge eliminates blind hope and “best guesses.” It moves your business away from “hope for the best” and toward knowing exactly how to get where you want to go.
