Ivan Woods In 60 Seconds

I work as fundraising advisor and CFO to regional growth companies. After my ACA I moved into banking – since 2000 in Hong Kong, Dubai and Singapore, including for HSBC and the World Bank, before “retiring” to a portfolio career.

I also manage the local office of Stepping Stone, which provides complementary services to The CFO Centre clients including “digital accounting”, payroll and compliance.
