A message from Sarah Hunt Founder and CEO EquityFD

We all find ourselves now in a crisis none of us have ever experienced before. My first thoughts are of course with the health of my colleagues and you our network of clients, candidates and friends.

Like many of you, we are now working remotely. I would like to reassure all of you that over a number of years now we have adopted a policy of secure, flexible working so, other than missing seeing you face to face, we can very much continue to guarantee the same level of service, professionalism and care you have come to expect from us.

This goes for you if you do need to recruit in these troubled times: flexibility, agility and a bespoke, solution focused approach have always underpinned our service and will continue to do so.

This also goes too if you are thinking about your next big move, assignment or career stage. However far in the future this may seem now, it’s always good to talk so do just pick up the phone for a conversation whenever you wish.

Our contact details are on our website at including direct mobile numbers and emails for all of us.

If of course you wish to contact me personally then please do feel free.

We do look forward to seeing you again soon and in the meantime on behalf of all of us here we hope that you, your family and friends stay healthy and we wish you all the best.

Sarah Hunt

Founder & CEO


Annual CFO Summit, The Contemporary FD

We’re delighted that our Annual CFO Summit, The Contemporary FD will return for the fifth time on 23rd April in St Paul’s. Equity FD co-host and partner with Smith and Williamson on this event delivering the same expert panellists, high-profile speakers and peer-to-peer advice that our guests have come to expect.

Once again, this event promises no PowerPoint, no pitches and no press, giving delegate FDs, CFOs and Heads of Finance from mid-sized, growth-orientated and progressive businesses a chance to refine their approach to adding value from the finance function.

This year we’re going back to basics - looking at raising finance, delivering growth and managing exits - all against a background of unprecedented change in the economy, international markets and the political landscape. Private equity has record amounts of dry powder, the radical change in the UK’s position in the world is about to take place and now a global health alert too all combine to make the FD’s role as risk manager, judge of value and chief negotiator more important than ever.

Join us to hear from Capita founder CEO (and former public sector accountant) Sir Rod Aldridge, legendary turnaround CEO and private equity guru Oren Peleg and the Directors’ Dilemmas panel chaired by Patrick Dunne - plus our special guest, Times executive editor (and former adviser to William Hague) Lord Daniel Finkelstein OBE, on what the future holds for the UK, its government and its economy.

This is an all day event and is invite only so if you are interested in attending and are an FD, CFO or Head of Finance in a scaling business please do get in touch with our CEO, Sarah Hunt ( and she will be delighted to tell you more.
