Interim CFO Solutions
An interim CFO can bridge the gap between CFO hires or join your company for a short period of time to help optimize strategy, resolve challenges, implement long-term financial systems, accelerate growth, or prepare for a transaction.
Each company’s situation is different. Preferred CFO will customize your interim CFO services to fit your company’s particular needs. While our project experience is diverse, our common interim CFO services include:
Fine-Tune Your Strategy
How well are your existing operations helping you to achieve your goals? An interim CFO can analyze your current cash flow, systems, and processes to find areas that can be improved and optimized.
Optimize Cash Flow
Whether you’re shooting for lean company operations or just looking to optimize your spending, an interim CFO can help discern what’s important, what’s not, and how to get the most out of what you have.
Prepare for Growth
Whether you’re expanding geographies or product offerings, are engaged in a transaction, or simply want to grow more sustainably, your interim CFO can help things go smoothly.
Our interim CFOs have helped raise hundreds of millions of dollars in capital. Let us help prepare documents, oversee due diligence, tap into our robust lending and investing network, negotiate contracts, and more.
Prepare for a Transaction
Are you preparing for a merger, acquisition, or exit? Our interim CFOs will make sure things go smoothly while ensuring you get the best deal possible for your situation.
Forecasting & Budgeting
Our interim CFOs will help create short- or long-term forecasts and budgets to help create a precise blueprint to help you get from where you are to where you want to go.
Why Hire an Interim CFO?
In-house CFO salaries are expensive–and that’s not including benefits or bonuses. Not to mention you may not have enough work around your company to keep a CFO busy full-time.
With an outsourced CFO, you get top talent for only the projects for which you need help, and at a fraction of the cost of a full-time CFO of similar caliber.
