Fractional CFO

A fractional or outsourced chief financial officer (CFO)
is an individual who has CFO experience and who helps organizations with their financial needs on a part-time
basis, either on retainer or more typically
a contracted basis
Companies which have reached a point where they require financial stewardship and guidance for their business, but which are not yet ready to hire a full-time CFO or Financial Controller may be best served by a “Fractional CFO” (sometimes also called a “Virtual CFO”).

ECFO offers bespoke solutions for buttressing strategic financial management capacity, including Fractional CFO and Virtual Financial Controller. Small-medium enterprises deploying a Fractional CFO or Controller benefit from the experience of a high-level finance leader without the cost of a full-time in-house CFO. For the Asia-based operations of larger global companies, a Fractional CFO performs important quality assurance and monitoring roles, while also ensuring that strategic projects and systems improvements are receiving the attention they are due.

A Fractional CFO is a finance leader who is generally based off-site (remote) and provides high-level services to the company, including but not limited to:

  • monitoring and financial review
  • budgeting and planning
  • new systems selection and implementation; and
  • financial department capacity building.


ECFO’s CFOs and Controllers have deep experience in a wide range of industries. Our team specializes in business planning and transformation and we go deep into the operations to rapidly build tangible capabilities in your team. The “fractional” aspect of this solution lends itself to establishing a culture of purposeful, steady improvement, with the measured intervals of engagement acting as a metronome for the finance team as a whole.

Adding an experienced CFO to your management team is a valuable enhancement, ensuring that strategy and finances are aligned and that your sales and operations teams have the information and resources to execute. ECFO’s Fractional CFO and virtual financial management solutions marshal these capabilities in a cost effective manner which can scale when needed.
