Belasko, a prominent fund and fiduciary business, has recently fortified its leadership team with two noteworthy appointments across its UK sectors. The company plans to bolster its business offering with the addition of Sandeep Lamba, the new Director of Fund Operations, and Sugees Mahen, who will take on the role of Director and Head of Private Debt.

Sandeep Lamba brings to the table over 18 years of substantial experience and proficiency in assurance and financial services. His speciality lies in delivering value-added services to both clients and internal stakeholders. In his fresh role with Belasko, Sandeep will undertake the responsibility of developing and implementing an operating model for the group that supports the delivery of fund services. He also plans to direct the development of policies and procedures, alongside the overall governance framework, to drive compliance with ISAE 3402 auditing standards.

With an equally enriching career span of 18 years in the offshore and onshore financial services industry, Sugees Mahen has a distinct expertise in investment funds accounting, particularly for Private Debt Funds. In his role, Sugees will utilise this experience to expand and cultivate Belasko’s team within the UK, and enhance the Group’s specialisation for Private Debt Fund administration.

Paul Lawrence, Group Managing Director at Belasko, shared his enthusiasm in welcoming these two experienced professionals to the team. "We're pleased to welcome Sandeep and Sugees to the team. Their extensive experiences will help our team across the group to strengthen our business offerings and support our clients," he states.

Upon his appointment, Sandeep shares, "Belasko constantly strives to be a trusted partner for its clients. In my Group role, I'm looking forward to working with exceptional like-minded leaders across all four jurisdictions to make an impact to further strengthen the operational delivery of our client services."

Expressing his anticipation about his new role, Sugees notes, "I’m looking forward to joining the team to continue delivering excellent services to Belasko's clients. This is an exciting opportunity and I can't wait to bring my experience to help develop and grow the team in UK."

The addition of these two skill-rich professionals in Belasko's leadership team unquestionably marks a considerable step towards enhancing the firm's business offerings and client services across its UK hubs.
