WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Having worked with OCFO for almost a year now, we’re not quite sure where we would be without them. So much more than a CFO, OCFO has worked diligently to ensure that they understand our financial position and goals, but also our market, clients and business operations. Their valuable insights have led us to make informed business decisions, and scale rapidly in turn. Most of all, we’ve enjoyed the sense of ownership that the OCFO team has invested to our account, knowing that we have a firm backbone powering our business. I’d highly recommend them. It’s the best investment you can make for your business.

My business would not be where it is today without the careful insight, passion and attention to detail that I received from OCFO. From the first engagement to detailed discussions analyzing the financial implications of my business, OCFO offers me an experience that gives me great comfort and confidence. What I particularly enjoy is that our meetings are focused, creative and solutions are always near. The enthusiasm and care in their area of expertise is unlike anything I have experienced before.

We’ve worked with Outsourced CFO from the very early stages of our business, through to established startup, and then scale up. They have been an insightful and attentive partner, helping proactively and providing expert support to so many facets of our financial strategy and management. Their expertise is really broad and at the same time they have great specialists amongst them, giving access to advice that is current and in line with changing trends and norms. Their work has been invaluable to us and I would unreservedly recommend them!

As the year comes to a close I would like to extend my thanks to you and your team. The greatest benefit that your team have been able to give me and the more general business is peace of mind. Through interactions with OCFO we have gained insight into our new business as well as being able to implement best of breed systems combined with best practise processes. The team that we have dealt with been superbly professional and have displayed high levels of competence. Most importantly they have shown sincere interest and care towards our firm and have reflected your personal abundance of energy in assisting our business. A great deal of trust has been established this year and I look forward to many years of a mutually beneficial relationship in which we assist each other’s growth!
