"Succeeding in business is all about making the right connections." – Richard Branson , founder of Virgin Group.

One of the aspects I treasure most about my role as a fractional CFO is the opportunity to connect my clients with seasoned experts through my extensive network. In the complex business world, having access to a diverse range of knowledge is essential. This was vividly illustrated in a recent webinar I hosted with Jack Kearney of Dumas Capital Partners and Trinitas Business Valuation , where we explored strategies to enhance business value—a connection made possible through diligent networking.

Below, I outline five compelling reasons why leveraging the network of a fractional CFO like Bender CFO Services can significantly benefit your business:


1. Save Money

Cost reduction is a primary reason businesses choose to work with fractional CFOs. By thoroughly analyzing your Profit & Loss (P&L) statements, we identify potential savings in critical areas. Here’s how our network can aid in reducing expenses:


  • PEOs (Professional Employer Organizations) help small businesses reduce health insurance costs by pooling them into larger groups. Our connections include PEO brokers who specialize in matching businesses with the best-suited PEO.
  • Commercial Insurance Brokers and Credit Card Processors streamline your operational costs.
  • Bankers ensure you receive optimal loan terms and interest rates for your cash reserves. For insights on how to effectively manage your cash and bank relations, explore our article on Cash and Your Bank .
