Outsourced CFO Solutions

An outsourced CFO elevates your company strategy by adding an top-of-the-line expert with decades financial, corporate, and systems experience–without the in-house cost.

Each situation is different. We will customize your outsourced CFO services to fit your company’s particular needs. While our project experience is diverse, our common outsourced CFO services include:

Fine-Tune Your Strategy

How well are your existing operations helping you to achieve your goals? An Outsourced CFO will 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 outsourced 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 outsourced CFO can help things go smoothly.

Raise Capital

Our Outsourced 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 outsourced CFOs will make sure things go smoothly while ensuring you get the best deal possible for your situation.

Forecasting & Budgeting

Our outsourced 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 Outsourced 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.

“Preferred CFO helped us successfully raise our first round of funding, and is currently supporting our second round. We’ve felt confident knowing that our CFO can jump on a call to field questions on our behalf. Our financial projections carry more weight with the Preferred CFO reputation. They were able to help us with a high-level solution that we would not have been able to replicate or afford any other way given the position our business was in.”
