Fractional CFO Services

Case Study

PBO Advisory Group’s fractional CFOs are experienced professionals who work with clients on a project and/or limited-hourly basis, even as few as 10 hours per month. 

The duties of fractional CFOs are broad and can be personalized to the specific needs of your company, usually focused on the responsibilities that your existing financial team does not have the skills, experience or manpower to handle. Our fractional CFOs also assist clients with a wide range of special projects.

Having a fractional CFO gives you the best of both worlds – needed skills without the added cost – including salary, bonuses, benefits and more – of hiring a full-time C-level employee. PBO Advisory Group’s fractional CFOs have years of experience so they can quickly get up to speed and begin effectively tackling your problems and implementing solutions. Many have specialized industry expertise.

A CFO’s role is focused on strategy. A fractional CFO will help your company move beyond just keeping current financials in order by helping plan and position you for a strong future.
