Capital Advisory is a corporate consultancy firm with a specialisation in financial management and process optimisation, corporate finance and good governance.
In today’s fast moving commercial environment, we understand that management faces a challenge in finding the time and focus to step back to review, analyse, question and challenge the way the business is run.
With over thirty years’ experience in commercial operations and corporate finance, we support the top management team in reviewing the organisation's finance operations, processes and management, highlighting areas where there are opportunities for improvement. We then work with management to address these areas to deliver measurable increases in efficiency, reduced risk, and improvements in profitability and cashflow.
We go a step further by assisting the business in improving business and financial reporting so that management gains real time visibility of the operation, enabling faster, improved, scientific decision making. We further assist in setting up robust corporate governance, ensuring that the company's assets and operations are safeguarded through effective reporting, sound internal controls and best practice in financial management, that effectively embeds continuous improvement and good governance into the organisation’s operation.
