Outsourced CFO

What is an Outsourced CFO?

An outsourced CFO, also called a virtual or fractional CFO, is an external professional who you can hire on an hourly or subscription basis. Outsourcing the work can help growing companies save time and money before they’re ready to bring on a full-time CFO.

The chief financial officer (CFO) is the strategic and managerial head of finance. Particularly for founders who don’t have a finance background, the CFO can set and review financial key performance indicators (KPIs), implement best practices, create budgets and forecasts, and help the board and potential investors understand the company’s financial position.

Startups often don’t have the resources or the need to hire a full-time CFO. An outsourced CFO service can help you understand your company’s finances, create custom forecasts, or prepare a fundraising strategy with a limited or one-time engagement.
