With 4 decades of experience, I am a veteran in the industry where I was promoted to Director in 1993 and received multiple International Dragon Awards (“IDA”) and Million Dollar Round Table memberships. I was also part of Singapore’s first 100 IDA team in history to achieve the 100 IDA Team Award 2019. I was recognised by the Financial Services Managers Association at Singapore Management Awards as one of the awardees and qualified as a member of the AIA Financial Adviser Pinnacle Club 2020.
When I was 44, I received my Master’s in Business Administration from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
Build your reputation well.
Trust is a very important factor when it comes to succeeding in this business, and in order to win the trust of your clients, you need integrity and perseverance. It is these two qualities that build and protect your reputation, on top of the company’s.
You need a thriving environment too.
Ultimately, my goal is to be able to work with like-minded partners with high regard for values and to build an everlasting career in the financial services industry.
Success is not a destination, it is a journey.
You need humility, continuous learning and upgrading, and being a role model to the younger generation by staying current and relevant, in order to make your mark in the industry. Savour every moment of your own journey and share the learning experience with your fellow peers whenever you can.
