Why are we here?
Billy French founded external services in 2010 to provide the sort of service that he always wanted when working in-house within the utilities, energy and banking sectors. Designed to fill the gap between businesses and their traditional advisors, external services fully accepts the need for traditional advisors, but recognises how their roles will change in the future to become more specialised.
What makes us different?
We believe that our business model is unique, there is no other business doing what we do the way that we do it. By combining legal, accounting, company secretarial and administrative skills with sector and industry experience we can offer multi-faceted support from the start.
How do we do it?
What we do does not always come easily. We believe in developing talented individuals that can specialise in certain areas, but also have a broad knowledge of our other services. The services we provide are so varied that we actively practice what we call boundary management to ensure that we only provide advice and support to the extent that we are competent to do so. It is for this reason that we actively encourage clients to retain their traditional advisors.
How do we work with your team?
At the core of our success has been the ability to dovetail into our clients’ existing teams and work as part of that team.
How do we work with your existing advisors?
Simple, as an extension of your existing team we liaise with your existing advisors from a position of knowledge and understanding, therefore maximising the quality of the advice that you obtain.
Where do we go from here?
We truly believe our business format is the way of the future and would love the opportunity to show you what we can do. Please feel free to contact us for a confidential and no obligation discussion on your potential needs.
