My journey started during an internship with AAG during my final years at Nanyang Technological University when I wanted to learn more about the financial advisory industry. The workplace environment was something unique and different that I hadn’t seen in my other internship experiences — everyone was willing to help one another, and share their business tips so that we may learn from them. Most importantly, it was the mentorship that I valued the most, as my mentor had put in countless hours to show me different perspectives of the financial advisory industry and helped me throughout my journey as a financial consultant.

Helping one another.
Being a financial consultant, you have to be forthcoming about sharing your knowledge. I choose to empower and educate my peers with financial knowledge so that we have the necessary financial literacy to all achieve our financial independence.

The learning never stops.
Lifelong learning is a no-brainer for all of us. I am constantly learning from my clients and friends, as everyone is in a unique situation worth studying. Likewise, the solutions I offer to each of them are distinct and different as well. There are also certain aspects of finance that I learn from my friends that I wouldn’t have been exposed to being in this industry, so I enjoy being a teacher and a student at the same time to my clients.

Come in with an open mind.
Apart from a willingness to learn, financial consultants should also have an open mind. You have nothing to lose, but everything to gain! Don’t be too quick to jump to conclusions, or follow a stereotypical perception of what a financial consultant should be. Go out and explore, and experience for yourself before deciding what entails the job of a financial consultant, and what role you wish to play for your clients.

Earnestness, Genuineness, and Sincerity are words that comes to mind when asked to define who Darien is as a person.

For those who have yet to meet his acquaintance, he might appear overly energetic, or some might even say quirky and weird. But as you would come to understand him, you would realised that his energy stems from his enthusiasm and passion to truly help and serve those around him.

I have had the good fortune to meet Darien and befriended him during my years as an undergraduate, and his friendship has greatly tide me through those difficult times. He does not shy away from the problems he encounters but always tackle them head on with steadfast confidence (a quality I admire greatly of him).

While he has more to learn and grow still, you can always count on him to find ways and solutions to help those dear to him.

Earnestness to learn. Genuine in helping. Sincere in action. This is who Darien is.


I have known Darien since my poly days. He has always been helpful to me. He is passionate, knowledgable and has a genuine interest in achieving the best for his clients. I will recommend him to my friends if anyone of them will like to learn more about their financial planning 😉


Darien has been my FA for almost a year now and I am very happy with his professionalism and knowledge. He is always willing to share about the policies that he believes will benefit us the most and constantly keeps tracks and update his clients on the latest news on policy changes and upcoming plans. He is really passionate in helping his clients and it doesn’t matter how minute the matter is, he always replies enthusiastically and never fails to include his professional opinion based on your situation to offer the best advice possible. With Darien as my FA, I know that I can safely rely on him to help me achieve my financial goals in the future.
