These are some of the mostgenuine and caring individuals I’ve ever met, both in business and in personal life. It may seem odd that asthe founder of a successful finance, taxation, and legal solutions firm, my opening statement is about mypeople. During my long years in business, I have realized that it is our people’s commitment to our customers,the zeal to always to do the right things for them, have helped us deliver enduring results. It is theirunderstanding of how important the business value of a corporate is, the constantly changing face offinancial services, their alignment with customer needs and aspirations, and most importantly their belief thatwe are in this together, is what makes us stand out against competition... they need a mention therefore!Greyfriars takes great pride in terms of the talent we have and the value we bring to the table for ourcustomers. While our services and solutions are our flagship, it is the approach of our people to become avaluable extension of our customer teams that makes us different. We work as one team, which helps usengage effectively with C-level to the front line. Our collaborative efforts emphasize on building teamworkand trust amongst our customers. As a result, most of our business happens through customerrecommendations. We just don’t stop at advising you on your business activities, we nurture you through it;step-by-step.To showcase how we work, let me give you an example. Let’s say your organization wants to expand thebusiness or grow (in) organic in two years. You’d typically like to begin by revamping the structure, businessmodel and plan of your organization.

While the focus of many consulting and advisory firms is the customer, builtaccording to their sales dollars, the Greyfriars team looks at your pain points with highest level of integrity.Each employee at Greyfriars is genuinely concerned with the well-being of our customers. Overtime, I’vewitnessed our advisory team go out of their way to add a newly requested feature to an upcomingtransaction to accommodate the needs and requests of our customer. I’ve also seen our support team,which is significantly smaller in number compared to the Big 4, happily spends hours on the phone withcustomers just to make sure they are thorough in addressing concerns and issues our customers face. In fact,often these issues are not business-related, but our team of committed individuals do exactly what youexpect from them provide support at every step.At Greyfriars, our desire to better the overall customer experience is unconditional.
