Converting an idea into a feasible business proposition is what we take pride on!

While no one can accurately predict the future but having a sound basis for a decision to enter into a business or not, a road map of what needs to be done and the risks that need to be mitigated along the way is always good.

By keeping the right mix of the business understanding and the financial prudence we have helped realizing the dreams of startups from the online ticketing business in US to the local tobacco company in Cayman, coal mining in Pakistan to the potash exporter in Australia and from Automobile services in Virgin Islands to the IT service provider in US.

In preparing all these plans we have specifically focused on the following to provide cutting edge to the clients we serve:

  • Following the approach of “How the business objectives could be met and is the market niche appropriate”?

  • It is my pleasure to provide feedback on Hyphen Consultancy performance to-date on the IFRS conversion for Binzagr Co. In perspective, we had selected Hyphen and awarded them the IFRS conversion task from  a choice of 5 leading contenders including big name Consultancies.  However we opted for Hyphen because of their promise to head the task with their experienced consultants and close supervision and involvement  of Faheem Piracha, the head of Hyphen Consultancy. While the task is spread over three phases including opening balances of 2017, then 2017 year end  comparatives, and review of 2018 and the project is still ongoing, we have  noted that Hyphen is delivering as promised. The team is dedicated, is collaborative and delivers beyond the content of deliverables in the signed agreement.   I have no hesitation in recommending their professionalism, timing and delivery to another organization for similar services.

    Senior Vice President Finance, Binzagr Co
  • It’s been sometime working along with Hyphen Consultancy seeking their support in SOCPA IFRS Transition, Audit & Risk Consultancy and developing Resource & Audit Management solutions. Throughout this association (and continuing), Faheem Piracha (the CEO of Hyphen) and his staff have displayed great understanding, good knowledge of applicable Standards, disciplined work approach, and willingness to learn. Our recent experience working alongwith their Audit resources have been amazing. Due to reasons, we preferred them over the Big-4 firms with words of caution. However, their contribution in the successful revamping of Internal Audit function in our Group was as good as we could have expected from the Big-4 firms. Once again, their understanding, knowledge and disciplined work approach helped us to achieve this milestone. I wish Faheem and his colleagues at Hyphen all the success in the coming days, and hope that Hyphen would be viewed as a success story for young entrepreneurs in Audit, Risk & Business Advisory Services.
