PORTFOLIO fD services for forward thinking businesses.

Shake off your business slump and get moving towards your goals again with practical financial insights and advice that leads to action.



Between your bookkeeper and your year-end accountant, you have compliance nailed.

But you still need to know what is holding you back, what you can do to push your business forwards, and how to plan for your next steps.

The truth is, most SMEs don’t need a full-time Finance Director, but they do need someone they can turn to for advice, direction and confirmation that their gut feeling is right on the money.

Wainwright Consulting works WITH you and your company giving you insight you can actually use, not just another report.

Time to check these items off the to do list:

✔ Set department budgets
✔ Create cash flow forecasts
✔ Calculate product / client profitability
✔ Assess potential investment cases
✔ Create meaningful Management Information (MI) and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
✔ Set a strategy to grow the business YOU want that meets YOUR definition of success
…and more.

Now you can know when to make your next investment in equipment, what hiring employees will do for your turn-around times, if you could take that second bank loan, and how you can take your business to the next level.

Very quickly Dani put in place tools and processes which have given us visibility over our profitability. This allowed us to make better business decisions and push the organisation forward…It’s been great to have someone with Dani’s experience and expertise on board and to have someone keeping an expert eye on things, alerting us to any issues or missed opportunities.
