Our Story

​​​​​​​Hakim Saya is a San Francisco-based Business Finance Consulting firm founded by Murat Wahab, MBA, a seasoned commercial banker, hotelier, business advisor, and entrepreneur. He named the firm for his cherished nephew Hakim, whose own father died unexpectedly at only 42 years of age. Able to afford Hakim educational and social opportunities in Malaysia that would not otherwise have been possible, Murat’s single-minded goal was to see Hakim through college in the United States. He hoped to change the trajectory of Hakim and his family for generations to come. That would be his legacy.
 
Sadly, Hakim left us in 2018, just past his 16th birthday, the victim of a car accident in Murat’s native Melaka. In choosing a name for his company, Murat chose Hakim Saya, meaning “My Hakim” in Malay. In Arabic, Hakim means wise, and the memory of his astute and wise appreciation for life remains an inspiration. Hakim was bright, fun, considerate, and so optimistic about the future.
 
Hakim Saya strives to honor Hakim’s memory with a spirit of finding joy in each day, doing good deeds, loving life, and connecting with like-minded individuals, be it in friendship or business. Happiness and success take many forms.

We are proud members of a global community, helping to support and grow local and international companies by providing unique and creative solutions to our clients. We help everyone to thrive and flourish together to accomplish their goals. 

Our core competencies are as follows:
  • We facilitate access to financing for domestic and international companies by utilizing our national and international direct lenders to provide financing options that meet our client’s specific needs. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
  • We support cross-border relations between the US and Asia (outside of China).
We pride ourselves on providing unique customer relationships to our clients. We take relationship management seriously and not just based on a slogan or a mantra. We understand that relationships matter. People do business together because of individual relationships and not merely on the products and services alone. We, at Hakim Saya, believe that relationships are the only thing that matters in business and life. We strive to establish meaningful and provide long-lasting relationships with our clients, service providers, partners, and stakeholders.
