About Insight Associates Financial Management

When it comes to making financial management decisions, corporate companies have an inbuilt advantage.

Their management team has access to accurate, timely numbers prepared by accountants. A Finance Director ensures they understand their financial position in depth. And they have robust financial management systems to flag up problems and ensure cashflow remains smooth.

Nearly 30 years ago our founder, Garry Mumford, had a vision: To give companies turning over £1 - £10 million those same financial management advantages.

Our aim is not only to handle your accounts, but to help you plan your business strategically, avoid financial difficulties and improve business performance. Above all, we want to help you, the CEO, make the best financial decisions for your company.

Essex accountants Insight Associates will support you as a Finance Director (FD), an accountant and a bookkeeper.

This fully outsourced finance department gives the same advantages that large corporates have.

Clients who have worked with Essex FD's Insight Associates have more time to develop their business, because they no longer fire fight financial crisis.
