In which domains of finance can Captains Of Finance help?
Captains Of Finance is specialised in the temporary or permanent placing of professionals in Controlling, Analysis & Treasury. Whether it be Business Operations, Sales or Financial Controlling, Captains Of Finance provides a custom fit solution.
Focused on Controlling
Our focus is on Controlling. Controlling derived from the verb 'to control' or maintain. Clear controlling enables security on all levels within an organisation, in order to redirect the (financial) processes in the correct way.
Big data is king. In order to make the right decisions, one must understand the numbers and correlations. In support of the CFO, the controller translates the business plan into a financial plan and provides the necessary "controlling- and reportingtools".
KPI's and ratio's allow the monitoring to check whether the company is in line with the management's vision and targets. The analysis and recommendation can be found through Management Reporting and the Executive Summary Report. Captains Of Finance's controllers are extensively skilled to complete these tasks.
Within the current complex business macro environment, a company's ability to adapt, dexterity and the commitment for constant change through innovation, are the key to succes. Traditional methods are insufficient to accomplish the targets. Here we need business analysis.
The realisation of targets that meet the consumer needs through projects concerning new products, services & profit. These projects are handled by the analist.
Treasury plays a crucial role when correcting and maintaining the company or organisation's financial strength. The following responsibilities are included within the role:
- the determination of financial- and especially the cash strategy & policy;

- controlling of the financial risks of the organisation.
