In a world often characterised by the extroverted pursuit of success, Sahib stands out as an embodiment of understated excellence. Though numerous and impactful, his achievements are often shrouded in the humility that defines his character.
He holds Fellowships of The Actuarial Society of Kenya (FeASK) and Britain’s Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (FIA).
Sahib is currently executive director, chief strategy, growth officer, and resident actuary at Lux Actuaries and Consultants Kenya and an adjunct faculty member at Strathmore University’s Institute of Mathematical Sciences.
Through his analytics and risk measurement skills, he prides himself in the transformational work he has been involved in turning around some parastatals, including the National Social Security Fund and the National Hospital Insurance Fund.

“At the beginning of my career, albeit at a junior level, I think those inputs have been instrumental in transforming some big government institutions. Of course, there’s still more work to be done. But I’m happy I’ve been part of the projects,” says Sahib, describing his leadership style as transformational.
And his accomplishments have not gone unnoticed.
During the 2022 Jamhuri Day celebrations, he was conferred a national honour for his exemplary leadership.
When he is not doing his actuarial job or lobbying for improvement of the sector, Sahib champions the ending of statelessness through various programmes such as the Belong campaign initiative by the United Nations.
He also mentors young people and is a member of the Council of Siri Guru Singh Sabha, which seeks to restore the purity of the Sikh culture in Nairobi.
