This exclusive group represents our core clients who benefit from regular access to the EFCG team’s diverse expertise, industry data, insights and advice, business solutions, and publicity. Many of our retainer clients have been working with EFCG for over 15 years and leverage our experience and perspectives on a monthly basis or through quarterly projects.
Our signature offering is a “Peer Benchmarking Analysis”, or what we call a ‘financial MRI’ – it compares our clients to 20-40 peers across 150+ financial and business metrics, enabling EFCG and our clients to quickly identify the strengths and weaknesses of a firm and develop an action plan to address key opportunities. We conduct over a hundred of these analyses each year and they are included in every Valuation we complete for clients.
