EquityInterim - Innovative Interim solutions for Entrepreneurial Businesses

The Brexit Agenda – The Contemporary FD Summit 2017

As part of our ongoing FD events programme, we recently held our annual FD Summit with Smith and Williamson.

The main topic of the event was the Finance Director’s role as a navigator of risk.

Brexit was of course on the agenda and for one session we debated five key questions on the subject and what the priorities, challenges and opportunities are for high growth, high potential companies.

Click here for a summary of the deliberations which we hope you find interesting and thought provoking.

About us

EquityInterim works with entrepreneurial businesses, to provide high quality flexible accountants into a variety of finance roles from Finance Director down.

It is a sister brand to EquityFD, EquityFC and EquityChair and shares their focus and passion for people and business.

This manifests itself in a real desire to partner both the more commercially focused accountant and our largely growth company client base.  Strong relationships are at the core of our philosophy and most of our work is referred to us by someone from our network.

We have a long history as a group (EquityFD was set up in 2000) and over that time have developed an in-depth understanding of the specific needs and requirements of a growth SME.  Businesses we work with are often owner managed, or PE/VC backed. They may be looking to list or exit, take on debt or make acquisitions.  What unifies them all is a real desire to create and in most cases, realise value.
