Flexible, Fractional CFO Support: Expert Financial Leadership on Your Terms

Many companies find themselves needing specialized financial expertise to drive growth and navigate transitions but hiring a full-time CFO can be costly and impractical – especially for small to medium-sized enterprises. That’s where we step in. Our fractional CFO services provide you with a dedicated finance executive who seamlessly integrates into your team, offering top-tier financial leadership at a fraction of the cost.

We begin with a thorough assessment of your current financial function, objectives, and challenges. Based on this, we craft a customized plan tailored to your specific needs—whether that’s enhancing cash flow management, securing debt financing, buying a business, guiding shareholder transitions, or fortifying your balance sheet against crises.

Our clients have successfully navigated complex turnarounds, acquisitions, divestitures and shareholder transitions (i.e., shareholder buyouts and buyins) through our expert guidance.

  • Financial Modelling – Working with you to create a comprehensive financial model that includes an income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement. This model will provide a clear understanding of your business’s current financial status and serve as a foundational tool for future growth and strategic planning.
  • Finance Strategy & Projections – Identifying the key drivers of your business and developing informed assumptions, enabling you to create accurate budgets and projections to manage your business and financial stakeholders.
  • Scenario & Project Analysis – Allowing you to see the potential impact of major business decisions before they are implemented. By exploring various hypothetical situations and their outcomes, we help you anticipate challenges, evaluate opportunities, and make data-driven decisions.
  • Liquidity & Working Capital Support – Enhancing your business’s liquidity through cash flow projections, strategic planning, and effective tools. We focus on improving the visibility of your cash flows and optimizing working capital, ensuring your business maintains a strong financial position.
  • Debt Advisory & Turnaround – Advising on debt financing options, negotiating terms with lenders, and restructuring existing debt to improve cash flow and financial health.

Tailored Debt Financing Solutions: Fuel Your Growth with Confidence

Phector Capital specializes in structuring and negotiating a broad spectrum of debt instruments to power your business’s growth. Our process starts with an in-depth credit assessment, where we meticulously evaluate your financial performance, collateral position, and growth projections. This thorough analysis allows us to identify and mitigate potential weaknesses, strengthening your credit profile before approaching lenders.

Leveraging our extensive network of banking relationships, we source the most suitable debt financing options tailored to your unique needs. Our team excels in crafting persuasive funding proposals, navigating intricate underwriting requirements, and negotiating favorable deal terms that safeguard your business and personal interests. Whether you’re looking to finance a significant equipment purchase, drive an acquisition, or refinance existing debt, our tailored debt advisory services are designed to secure the capital you need while ensuring your long-term financial health.

With Phector Capital, you not only gain access to optimal financing solutions but also benefit from strategic guidance that drives measurable growth.

Founded with SMEs in Mind: A Partner You Can Trust

Cuong launched Phector Capital after recognizing that small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) often had the same financial and strategic ambitions as much larger enterprises but lacked the resources and expertise available to them.

While there are many advisors and service providers that assist businesses with transactions, there are few firms that tailor their approach to the unique needs of SME businesses. These businesses frequently lack a seasoned CFO or corporate development leader, making it challenging to successfully navigate complex financing, growth, or M&A initiatives.

Phector Capital was founded with the express purpose of supporting SME business owners and entrepreneurs. The firm takes a proactive, hands-on approach, working closely with clients well before any potential transaction. We help SMEs formulate strategic plans, position the company for execution, and ensure the client’s goals are fully realized even after a deal closes.

We’re committed to helping visionary founders and business owners thrive, not just survive.
