EXTERNAL ADVISOR vs INTEGRATED SOLUTION
We are flexible in how we provide the above services. We can be engaged as external advisors or where appropriate, we can be contracted to work internally with our clients and become integrated with your business. From past experience, we believe the latter approach has yielded the best results for our clients as we develop a deeper understanding of your business and therefore provide a more personalised solution.
