Frequently asked questions

What clients usually engage your Financial Controlling Consultants?

We work with clients from all over the world. Our clients range from enterprise and corporate clients to companies that are backed by Private Equity or Venture Capital funds. Furthermore, we work directly with Family Offices, Private Equity firms, and Asset Managers. Most of our enterprise clients have dedicated Corporate Development, M&A, and Strategy divisions which are utilizing our pool of Financial Controlling talent to add on-demand and flexible resources, expertise, or staff to their in-house team.

How is Fintalent different?

Fintalent is not a staffing agency. We are a community of best-in-class Financial Controlling professionals, highly specialized within their domains. We have streamlined the process of engaging the best Financial Controlling talent and are able to provide clients with Financial Controlling professionals within 48 hours of first engaging them. We believe that our platform provides more value for Corporates, Ventures, Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, and Family Offices.

Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

Which skills and expertise do your Fintalents have?

The Fintalents are hand-picked and vetted Financial Controlling professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our Financial Controlling consultants’ experience ranges from 3+ years as analysts at top investment banks and Strategy consultancies, to later career C-level executives. The average working experience is 6.9 years and 80% of all Fintalents range from 3-12 years into their careers.

Our Financial Controlling consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our Financial Controlling talent pool stand out is the fact that they have technical backgrounds in over 2,900 industries.

How does the screening and onboarding of your Financial Controlling talent work?

Fintalent.io is an invite-only platform and we believe in the power of referrals and a closed-loop community. Members of our community are able to invite a small number of professionals onto the platform. In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

What happens if I am not satisfied with my Financial Controlling consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk.

Everything you need to know about Financial Controlling

What is financial controlling?

Managing a company’s finances, in particular the income and expenditure side, is called financial controlling. The person responsible for managing this area is called the controller or financial director. Financial controlling includes the management of all aspects of revenue generation i.e production to sales, accounts receivable and payable, taxes etc. It also encompasses budgets and cash flow forecasting. The latter takes into account the expected cash receipts and payments at a group level as well as at an individual company level. If there are several companies in a group, the cash flow is projected by means of intercompany transactions such as transfers between subsidiaries and parent companies.

Why is Financial Controlling important?

The controller ensures that the company’s management has the financial information it needs to make financial decisions. The data are necessary for planning, decision making, controlling and reporting on financial performance. The controller ensures that the managers use the numbers in making their own decisions. Managers should be able to easily understand and analyse their performance, and make take appropriate actions to improve it.

»Fintalent was able to provide consulting advice in very little time for one of our latest M&A projects. The support was hands-on, pragmatic and of high quality and was as a result critical to advance the project we were not able to properly address in the classical way.«
