EquityInterim - Innovative Interim solutions for Entrepreneurial Businesses

The Contemporary FD 2016

We had a great day at our 2016 Summit which focused on the FD as value creator and which we held in partnership with Smith and Williamson.

Over 100 CFOs and FDs attended and we produced a brochure to accompany the day, highlights from which can be viewed here

Looking forward to next year’s event!

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.
