Sandeep’s base of high net-worth, family office and corporate clients stretches from the Middle East to Europe and the Far East.

The Wealth Lounge was founded by Sandeep as a result of the disenchantment felt by many investors with the global markets and their lack of consistency. Today, The Wealth Lounge operates as a fully functional wealth management consultancy, with a strong focus on Fintech and alternative investments including fixed income loan notes, private equity and real estate, among other assets. Sandeep has also forged a partnership with a major UK/Swiss family office to facilitate co-investment through their private client arm.

Sandeep is also part of the management team of 3RT Smart Gold Holdings, a gold exploration company in Canada and UAE that owns 50 square kilometers of gold and mineral claims. The company will become the first of its kind to tokenize all gold assets held with their land.

Following the success of Sandeep’s book, Waking Up to Wealth, recommended by, Sandeep’s opinions were sought and published by the likes of Arabian Business, Gulf News, International Adviser and Zawya Arabic. Waking Up to Wealth became an Amazon Best Seller, No. 2 in Business and Finance, and number 1 best seller on Kobo Reader, Business and Finance.

Based with his family between Dubai and London, in his spare time, his great passion is studying all forms of music, writing, travelling and playing golf (only in cool cloudy weather). Most precious to Sandeep is to have the ability to spend quality time with his family and friends.

Today, in the early 21st century, we are witnessing a seismic revolution in the financial services industry, where the world’s population has unmasked the long-established control of money as dated, unfair, dictatorial and untrustworthy.
The mechanism of trade, transactions, borrowing and investing, and the way they are conducted, is mutating or being altogether usurped by seemingly fairer and transparent systems. Pioneering companies and individuals are sweeping through innovative alternatives to cash and traditional banking, reforming and radicalizing the way we manage our wealth, giving society control over its own fortunes.

With this new wave, we require new skills, including the ability to understand risk and the different asset classes. However, as we enter this era, we find a middle class that in their majority are debt-ridden and alarmingly short of their savings targets. Somehow, many of them project a sense of comfort, yet are locked in the manacles of a precariously flawed routine.

Sleeping through such crises and overlooking the newly paved routes to wealth will likely lead to financial devastation and defeat in the battle against time – racing to survive, but struggling to survive the race. The time has come to wake up to wealth.

“To learn about and keep up with the world of investment is nowadays becoming a prerequisite for life as we know it. Ignorance is no longer bliss – it is suicide!” “Recalibration of your attitude to any kind of borrowing will set a clear definition of what financial independence actually is.”

“If we’re to start making our financial plans today, to create and shape our dreams of the future, we can’t simply look behind assuming that the same methodologies will work.”
