CFO Strategic is a specialist Chartered Accountancy firm, based in Sydney, Australia.
The firm provides a full range of executive level business & financial services to the growing number of innovative start up, growth and large businesses that require experienced financial leadership.
CFO Strategic was formed in 2004 by Daniel Fah & Laura Raymer, Chartered Accountants with extensive experience in Australia and abroad as Chief Financial Officers for a wide range of businesses and sectors.
The partners saw the need for a specialist Chartered Accounting firm to provide Chief Financial Officer expertise to companies who require and would benefit from the knowledge of senior finance executives, but cannot fully utilise a full time CFO.
This service is distinctive as the business partners of CFO Strategic have actual finance executive experience, In contrast the majority of CA firm practitioners work in public practice and focus on compliance work (tax, audit etc) and providing services externally to their clients.
CFO Strategic engagements are directly with the business, CEO, Board and the senior management team. The business partners effectively take ownership for outcomes and not simply analysing and providing a report. Essentially, each business has as part of their management team, a skilled Chief Financial Officer to guide and direct the firm. As a result the engagements can be for extended timeframes with periods of intense involvement to see the company through the critical periods.
CFO Strategic partners have the experience to meet all of a company’s strategic finance needs including: growth & business planning, improving commercial and operational effectiveness, securing business financing, providing strategic analysis of acquisitions and mergers, ensuring effective board and corporate governance and managing / re-engineering finance functions.
CFO Strategic holds a Public Practice certificate with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Australia and is a member of the Australian Venture Capital Association Limited. The business partners have individual memberships with the Australian Institute of Directors, Institute of Chartered Accountants of Australia and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of New Zealand.
