Your business needs solid financial foundations, insightful reporting and commercial foresight if it's going to survive and thrive. The best financial directors deliver those critical insights day in, day out. So, how do companies manage when their current financial director leaves or they aren't ready to hire an executive into the role just yet?

FD Strategies is the solution.

Our founder Vanessa Fletcher noticed this gap in the market back in 2011 and has assembled a small team to deliver bespoke, part time financial director resource at a manageable cost.

We offer a range of services – from helping you maintain, strengthen and develop your current finance team to ensure a smooth transition during times of change, and empowering senior executives and CEOs with reporting and insights to inform critical business decisions.

We have the integrity to ensure that we always provide an appropriate level of support – the aim being to make our clients self-sufficient but not neglected. Above all, we never outstay our welcome.

The services FD Strategies provide have developed over the years and now fall into 3 main categories:

Part-time finance director support

Access finance director expertise and commercial experience from professionals with a proven track record in building strong finance teams and helping businesses grow and prosper.

Interim head of finance

Maintain a robust financial structure during challenging times or executive change by us to lead and manage your team.

Financial management for high-net-worth individuals

Engage our chartered accountant to help manage your portfolio. We've worked extensively with clients handling property, business interests and other investments.
