Outsourced Finance Directorand CFO

Every business wants to head in a unique, strategic direction, and you, as the Managing Director, CEO or business owner, are in the driving seat.

The importance of qualified financial leadership

For many successful businesses, a finance lead brings a uniquely qualified financial understanding, which ensures that the business stays as close to the intended path going forward as possible.

From developing a long-term financial strategy, improving the insights from your accounts, and assisting strategic spending to cutting waste and helping raise business capital, a Finance Lead is vital to a business’s long-term success and growth.

How Genus can help

Not all businesses can employ a qualified and experienced finance lead full-time, such as a Finance Director, CFO or Non-Exec Director, and this often leads to a lack of financial direction. However, that doesn’t mean your business needs to miss out on the vital contribution a finance lead brings.

With Genus’s Client CFO/FD offering, you can outsource your Finance Director, CFO, or Non-Executive Director role. We will use our decades of experience to work closely with your leadership team, driving your strategic vision forward in the right direction.

Our team is also specialists in providing relevant, bespoke training to members of our clients’ finance teams so that they can be more confident and successful when taking over the finance reins of the business in the future.

So, contact Genus today and find out how our experienced team can help your business achieve its goals.

Financial Leadership & Support

There are no shortcuts with financial strategy, and we will help you drive efficiencies and deliver success in many areas. We want to truly understand your business and its goals and help you achieve them.

Client CFO

As your client CFO, we will help define and execute the company strategy, keeping the longer-term vision and objectives front and centre. A CFO's unique view and understanding will be vital to the success of your growth plans.
