I joined this career when I was a second-year economics student at the National University of Singapore. Back then, I got my introduction to the financial advisory industry through an internship programme with AAG. After experiencing first-hand the benefits of proper financial planning, the internship enabled me to better understand the actions I could take to impact the people around me and further reinforced how fulfilling and meaningful this career is. I saw value in what I was doing and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thus, I decided to continue this journey as a full-time financial consultant.
A service that everyone needs.
I strongly believe that everyone needs financial planning in some way or another. I hope to be able to provide a personalised service to tailor advice and solutions based on the needs of my clients, in order to help them achieve their financial goals step by step.
Forging deeper relationships.
I am grateful that this career allows me to forge deeper and more meaningful relationships with my friends and family members, and also reconnect with friends that I have not met in a really long time. On top of that, this career allows me to fulfil my goal of reducing the financial burden on my father, as I am able to contribute financially to my family and also do proper financial planning for my own family.
Understand the value that you bring to people.
With a certain social stigma surrounding the industry, many financial consultants struggle at the start as they are fearful of how others view them. Thus, it is key that we understand the value we are bringing to the people around us, and how we are able to impact the lives of others. It is also important to find joy and love in the work that we do. As long as we do the right things and we are continuously learning to be competent, there is nothing to worry about.
