Febert & Associates - Where Family Comes First

CFO Services

Similar to a corporate Chief Financial Officer (CFO), we will work with a family and its trusted advisors in analyzing the family’s current financial situation and establishing goals and objectives. We will then coordinate the efforts of the entire team of professional advisors and monitor the progress while keeping the family informed every step of the way.

As part of the process toward the attainment of the family’s goals and objectives, there often arises the need for financial analysis, modeling and the preparation of complex financial schedules. We provide families with a cost effective method to satisfy these needs without the necessity of hiring full-time staff or the need to negotiate expensive time and billing rates with advisors who may not have the time, capacity or interest in these projects. We have an experienced team available to handle and analyze complicated financial transactions at a fraction of the cost needed to establish and maintain a dedicated single family office or to contract for these services on a per hour basis. Therefore, clients receive economies of scale and cost efficiencies without the need to sacrifice personal service and attention to detail.
