The Power of Outsourced FD for Growing Marketing Agencies 

What is an Outsourced FD and How Does it Work? 

The Pros of Outsourcing Your Financial Director: 

  • Access to Experts: When you engage an Outsourced FD, you gain access to a team of experts, each specializing in a particular aspect of finance. This wealth of expertise ensures that your financial needs are met comprehensively. 
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Outsourcing financial services typically comes at a lower cost compared to hiring multiple full-time employees. This cost savings can be particularly advantageous for smaller agencies with limited resources. 
  • Industry Insights: Outsourced FDs often work with numerous clients across various industries. However, you can choose an FD that specialises at working with agencies and therefore will be able to offer valuable insights into industry trends, best practices, and successful financial strategies. They can then apply this knowledge and experience to help your agency excel. 
  • Objective Third Party: An Outsourced FD provides an objective third-party perspective. They have no vested interest or biases in your agency’s operations. This impartial viewpoint can be invaluable when making critical financial decisions. 

The Cons to Consider: 

  • Limited Accessibility: Outsourced FDs typically serve multiple clients, which can limit their accessibility. You may not have immediate access to their services whenever you require them. 
  • Control: When outsourcing financial services, you may have to relinquish some control over how specific tasks are executed. Outsourced teams have their own methods and processes that they follow. 
  • Cultural Cohesion: Introducing an external financial team may impact your agency’s cultural cohesion. Their approach and culture might differ from yours, potentially leading to clashes in values and working styles. 

Making the Right Choice: 

  • Accessibility: Inquire about their availability and how they handle multiple clients. 
  • Control: Discuss the level of control you’ll retain over financial decisions and processes. 
  • Cultural Fit: Explore how their approach aligns with your agency’s culture and values.
