Financial Gap Analysis Product

Start off with a Financial Gap Analysis engagement to dissect and assess the current financial heart of the business. A finance expert will gather and analyze all company financial information, meet with your team for insight and context, and provide you with a detailed report on your financial standing and your route to growth.

The Financial Gap Analysis looks into every aspect of your company, allowing both the client and the CFO to gain a full overview of the business, highlighting problem areas and plotting these out into a sustainable roadmap for growth and financial success. Business risks are highlighted and recommendations for building a world-class finance function are made. After the Gap Analysis, the executive team will be in a much better position to make informed decisions when taking the next steps towards growing their business.

The Financial Gap Analysis is generally the first step in every CFO Services Retainer Package.

Financial Gap Analysis Structure

The Financial Gap Analysis focuses on the following key elements of the business and its finance and compliance engine:

  • Company structure and ownership
  • Product and services offering
  • Industry analysis and trends
  • Business model analysis
  • Financial analysis
  • Asset and liability structures
  • Systems and processes
  • Compliance
  • Management and human resources
  • Funding considerations
  • And more

 

The first key outcome of the analysis is a risk register that lists the key risks and gaps within the finance function. It then follows with recommendations of the main priorities within the finance function to derive maximum results. Lastly, it creates a roadmap for growing the finance engine – and through that the business.
