Measuring, Reporting & Analysing Financial Performance

Many businesses fail because of poor financial management or planning. The customer value proposition can be highly attractive and demand for product or service strong but if you are unable to measure, understand and manage financial performance you could end up being out of business.

By financial performance we mean: working capital needs, cash flow cycles, borrowing needs (overdrafts and business loans), sustainable growth rates (which avoid over trading tendencies), cash flow forecasts, profitability, financial ratios, etc.

At FENCI we can help our clients organise weekly / monthly financial meetings according to a pre-defined agenda and help analyse and/or understand on a week-to-week or month-to-month basis your company’s financial performance.

  • Business Bias

    Decisions in business are inevitably loaded with bias. By ‘business bias’ I mean that managers tend to be prejudiced in favour or against one thing usually in a way considered to be unfair or... 

  • The Organisation

    I cringe with embarrassment as I watch Sepp Blatter declare to the rest of world that he wants to clean things up at FIFA, as if he wasn’t the organisation’s president for the past 18-odd years.
