Relevant Industry Experience:
Look for a fractional CFO with experience in your specific industry, as they’ll understand the unique financial challenges and opportunities your business may face.

Strategic Thinking:
A good fractional CFO should offer strategic insight, not just manage the books. They should provide guidance on financial planning, investment strategies, and long-term growth.

Strong Financial Acumen:
The fractional CFO should have a strong understanding of financial statements, cash flow management, budgeting, and forecasting.

​Communication Skills:
They must effectively communicate complex financial information clearly to stakeholders, including those without a financial background.

Leadership and Team Collaboration:
Although fractional, the CFO should be able to lead the finance team and collaborate with other departments to ensure alignment with the company’s financial goals.

Problem-Solving Skills:
The ability to identify financial problems and come up with effective solutions is crucial for a fractional CFO.

Ethical Integrity:
Trustworthiness and high ethical standards are non-negotiable, as the CFO will handle sensitive financial information.

Proven Track Record:
Look for a fractional CFO with a history of success and tangible achievements in previous positions, demonstrating their ability to positively impact your business.
