Answers to Your Questions
What is a Fractional CFO?
A fractional CFO is a financial expert who provides strategic advisory, forecasting & budgeting, systems optimization, capital-raising assistance, or other CFO services on a part-time or project basis. “Fractional” means the CFO works for a single client on a predetermined limited basis, usually working with a small handful of clients at a time. This means the cost is often significantly lower than that of a comparably-experienced in-house, full-time CFO.
A fractional CFO provides high-level financial strategy, systems analysis and design, and operational optimizations. They can also help a company resolve challenges such as cash flow issues, raising capital, solving tight margins, implementing more efficient systems, or preparing for growth.
What are your fractional CFO rates or costs?
The rate or cost of a fractional CFO depends on what types of services you need, how many hours per month are needed, whether your services will include support staff such as controllers and bookkeepers, and the term (length in months) of the arrangements. Most of our agreements are 12-24 months to maximize impact, though we do offer shorter term project solutions. Let us put together a proposal for your specific needs by filling out our contact form.
What if we already have a CFO?
No problem! Our CFOs are great at working with in-house teams to train, implement systems, and elevate strategies.
What industries do you specialize in?
We pride ourselves in the diversity of our fractional CFOs’ industry backgrounds. With some of the most experienced CFOs in the industry, we specialize in everything from manufacturing, SaaS, communications, construction, medical devices, travel, security, retail, and solar, to education, medical & health services, mortgage, food and beverage, gas and oil, venture capital, and more. Not sure if we fit your niche? Let us know what you’re looking for and we will share our information sheets of the best fractional CFOs we have to fit your needs.
What if we don’t have any bookkeepers or controllers on staff?
Preferred CFO has full financial teams at the ready to help implement your financial strategies. Whether you’re only in need of a fractional CFO or also need supporting help from an outsourced controller or bookkeeper, we have experts on staff to help.
Why hire a fractional CFO?
The main reasons a company chooses to hire a fractional CFO over an in-house CFO are because they can’t afford a full-time CFO hire, they want to maximize experience and value for the cost, they have only a temporary situation (like an audit or capital raise) that they need CFO assistance with, or because they’re ready to take their financial strategy to the next level. Fractional CFOs maximize experience and impact while minimizing in-house cost and commitment.
