Masood heads Immigration@SG LLP as Director and Managing Partner, where he oversees the entire management of the company. He is responsible for providing the overall strategy and advisory for all inbound Singapore immigration matters based on his solid immigration policy planning experience with the various Singapore ministries.
The value and experience he brings to IASG have seen him grow the company to over 30 in headcount in just over 4 years – despite the highly competitive and niche nature of the business. In this time, he has assembled a very efficient and professional team consisting of a mix of both ex Ministry employees as well as individuals with experience from various sectors including Banking & Finance, Medical, Hospitality and Technology.
To date, under Masood’s stewardship, IASG has effectively served individuals and families from over 40 Nationalities to attain Singapore Permanent Residence and Singapore Citizenship. Additionally, on the Corporate front, IASG has partnered both SMEs and MNCs to fulfil the foreign talent requirements for their Singapore operations through sound advisory and legal documentation work.
In line with IASG’s vision to be a trusted partner delivering solutions to our client’s Singapore immigration needs, IASG is continually working hard to improve our processes and align our protocols with Singapore’s selective immigration requirements as stipulated by the Singapore Government through honest work. We believe our highly-rated public reviews are a testament to the good work IASG has done since inception.
