We extend a very warm welcome to Karan who has joined LALA as the Global Head of Lending. Located in Singapore, he has already Embedded his mark in establishing the global lending arm of LALA World LALA Lends.

He was the founder of a large credit business in India (NBFC), managed portfolio of credit investments in Asia and Americas. Further, he has an incredible experience of being part of two successful credit fundsMason Capital and Puma, in New York, with a focus on high yield and special situations credit investments.
