Kevin’s career as a FSC began barely two weeks after turning 21. Although at such a tender age, Kevin’s professionalism and ability are not to be doubted. He has attained the coveted Associate Financial Planner (AFPCM) designation over and above the multiple licensing papers he had to sit for – all these while serving his National Service prior to turning 21 years old. Kevin received his education in three of the top institutions in Singapore – Hwa Chong Institution (2005-2006), Victoria School (2007-2008), and Raffles Institution (2009-2010), where he was also a long distance runner that was well respected by many of his peers. He is currently an undergraduate at NUS Business School since August 2013. In his maiden year with AIA, Kevin came out as the top varsity consultant in the district.
Kevin’s venture into this career began through a purely incidental encounter. For a long time, he has always been interested in the field of finance. In addition, he always has an entrepreneurial flair as he never believed in working as an employee. Kevin knows that he needs a great deal of control over his own life and he can never accept someone else dictating his working hours, mealtime and salary. It was under an unusual circumstance that he got to know his director and mentor, Winnie, through a close friend of his.
Initially, he was rather skeptical about this career. It was only after reading more into it that he came to feel that there is no other career as purposeful as this. It was through witnessing first hand of the suffering a family would go through without proper financial planning that sparked a desire for him to create a change, for the better, in the lives of as many people as he possibly can. Furthermore, this career encompasses both finance and entrepreneurship and Kevin felt that he could not have stumbled upon a greater love than this.
The one motto which Kevin holds dearly to was taught to him by his alma mater – Victoria School. This motto reads, ‘Nil Sine Labore’, which is a Latin expression that means, “Nothing Without Labour”. Indeed, it was by living this motto every day of his life that brought him the little successes he has achieved till today. Kevin strongly believes that intelligent hard work, when coupled with a desire to create value for others, are the key drivers to one’s success. To him, the key elements to success can be summed up in three words – Dream, Plan and Effort. When you have a dream in your mind, a plan to get there, and the willingness to put in the effort, it will not be a matter of whether you will achieve your dream, but a matter of when!
Being passionate about this career, Kevin is dedicated to performing his best for each and every one of his client. He understands that personal financial planning is a lifelong process and is unique to each individual. Being a people-oriented person, he is committed to working closely with his clients to build a future of excellence together.
