Do you know that 41% of adults in
Singapore are NOT financially literate?
based on a study by S&P
"Am I going to be paying student loans until
the day I die?"
"I'm saving money, but I need more to travel around the world before I hit 35 years old."
"I want to retire by 40 years old and give my parents & family a good life"
Financial literacy is not just about the knowing the boring technical terms such as inflation, risk diversity, investment portfolio...blah blah blah. It is also the key difference between having a dream and making it come to life.
Many Singaporeans enter the workforce with little knowledge about how to manage their finances because they have no idea how to start or when to start. This can easily cost individuals an average of $13,453 in banking fees, interest and investment losses during their lifetime.
It doesn't have to be this way. What if you can be equipped with financial knowledge
and use this life skill to achieve your personal dreams? Whether it's travelling overseas at
least thrice a year, owning that Audi R8 Spyder, or retiring early so you can drop out of the
rat race altogether, financial literacy is the first step to success.
Hailed as the finance guru among your friends

It has been more than 5 years with Advisors' Clique, after I left my stable job in the Civil Service.
The main attraction to join this industry is because of the fast and direct positive impact I can make in my clients' lives. Be it protecting their financial commitments, or accumulating wealth for their life goals, every day in this profession brings great meaning at work.
Coming over from the HR profession, Advisors' Clique has supported me greatly, as I build my foundation in financial expertise. There is also structured and effective training regime, which ensures that my own ambition to help more clients is progressing well.
The beauty of this industry, cohesive group culture and multi-faceted domains of expertise, espouse the excitement in this career. In every engagement with my clients, new life goals and ideals are unearthed, and we discuss the various strategies feasible to help their future. These bring heartening joy at work and builds new long-lasting relationships.
