Establishing new business strategies.

Our team works cooperatively with your management and stakeholders to make assessments about on-going cash flow and working capital needs. We also assist you with new business strategies, divesting non-core businesses and assets, and the design of new capital structures.

Advisory Boards

Does your board have the skills your business needs to thrive? There are many challenges to a business that need a skilled overview or governance expertise.

If your board is made up of family members or inexperienced directors you can be at risk of compromising the business focus of the agenda. The smart way to ensure that doesn’t happen is to use external business experts on an advisory board.

Advisory boards help guide decision-making

Crowe Horwath advisers are often called upon to help set up and participate in advisory boards for our clients. These board help provide you with a balance of skills and perspectives. They are often formed to help a business realise a new opportunity, such as exporting for the first time. Or they can simply provide extra motivation and direction to help a business owner refocus.

Why set up an Advisory Board?

With the increased responsibility on directors to meet legislative requirements, employing a small group of expert advisers who are only there to provide guidance, not decision-making, may be a sound alternative. However, because of these legislative challenges, it is important that an advisory board is set up and run correctly from the start. Your advisory board can be set up for short or long-term needs.
