Building financial fortitude is a valuable source of practical information, in the form of regular insights, news, views and events.

Building financial fortitude logoWe can all agree that 2020 was a year like no other. And whilst 2021 looks more promising, there are still challenges ahead. The ongoing aftershock of the pandemic continues to threaten a deepening recession, uneven recovery and accelerated changes to all business models and working practices. To survive and thrive, businesses need to be resilient and robust. As a highly experienced business-advisory firm, we talk to hundreds of businesses daily; we understand they need support to tackle issues proactively and move beyond the challenges. And that’s why we created this programme.
