Staff Spotlight – Sabab Khan

Sabab Khan .

The next of our Staff Spotlight series, this week featuring Sabab Khan our Portfolio Analyst at Pallas Capital.

Can you tell us about yourself and your background?

I hold a Bachelor of Mathematics & Finance and a Grad. Dip in Applied Finance (MappFin), specialising in alternative investments. With more than 10 years of experience in financial reporting, portfolio analysis and research, I began my finance career in Citi’s graduate program and then NAB Asset Management. Most recently, I worked with global fund manager Pendal Group specialising in portfolio insights and research house ratings. I’m currently preparing for my CAIA accreditation.

Outside of a busy work life, I like to stay active, spending time with friends and family and improving my culinary skills.

How did you come to be part of the Pallas Capital team?

After a decade focusing on mostly traditional investments, I was looking for a new challenge. A recruiter contacted me with some background about Pallas Capital. I was instantly in awe of their growth trajectory, investment strategies and returns achieved for investors in such a short span of time. I knew it would be the perfect place for me to gain knowledge, add value and be part of a successful journey.

What does a typical workday look like for you at Pallas Capital?

As a Portfolio Analyst, I’m responsible for financial modelling, portfolio analysis and research across all our unlisted CRE funds. Also, consulting with research houses on fund ratings. It’s a challenging role which I thrive in, as no two days are the same. I’m constantly seeking better investment solutions for our clients and implementing investment products that offsets negative returns due unfavourable markets and interest rates movements.

I also actively make sure our funds obtain the highest rating from research houses and strengthen the Pallas Capital brand across various advisor channels.

What has been your highlight at Pallas Capital so far?

I’ve been particularly impressed with the expertise, knowledge and the camaraderie the team brings to the office every day.

You know you’re in a great environment when the people you work with are aspiring individuals.

Beyond that, I’ve always admired architecture and development. Seeing the beginning and end of a Fortis project is truly magnificent. Their class is well above the rest, and it feels very fulfilling when we showcase our completed projects to our investors.

What are your personal goals for 2022 outside of Pallas Capital?

During lockdown, I went through the process of building my first home through a bespoke builder. I’d actually like to take on that challenge once more, as I gained some valuable skills during each development stage.

Apart from that, travel overseas and tick off some places from my bucket list.
