Lee is a highly regarded figure in the wealth management industry, with extensive global experience working across Europe, Asia and North America with wealth, life and pensions, asset management, and asset servicing clients, including traditional and alternative asset classes. He specialises in wealth platform technology, digital transformation, service efficiency and business resilience and is a recognised expert in delivering transformation, change and benefits realisation.

Most recently, he was a Director at KPMG, working as the practice lead for asset servicing, wealth platforms and operational resilience. Prior to this, he also held senior roles at CitiGroup, Genpact, Aviva and Aegon Asset Management, following earlier roles with CSTIM, CMG Admiral and the TSB Group.

Reflecting on his latest role, Lee commented, “I am tremendously excited to be joining Sionic’s award-winning Wealth Management & Private Banking practice at this time of rapid growth. The depth of expertise, experience and existing client base combined with a truly open and progressive group of like-minded consultants drew me to Sionic. I just can’t wait to get started and be part of our expansion. It’s very much the right organisation, and the right team at the right time for me!”

Earlier in the summer, Sionic also deepened its fraud offering for banks, with the addition of Revelock’s solutions to its portfolio. The partnership has boosted its expanding fraud detection service, helping clients to pre-emptively block and respond to fraud attempts.
