My Financial Planning Philosophy
Easy and Simple
Simplify the complexities of financial planning by breaking them into manageable chunks and focus on the gaps. I choose to separate insurance from investment so that I can optimise my insurance expenses for protection based on my needs while maximising my investment budget for a diversified investment portfolio.
Comprehensive and Robust
My financial plan is created with the possibility of living to the age of 100 in mind with milestones that I want to achieve along the way. A review on my financial plan at the end of each year to assess my performances. I keep my financial plan robust and fluid to pivot with my circumstances, government policy changes, and investment opportunities
Disciplined and Automated
Staying consistent on a planned 'Buy Term and Invest the Rest' financial journey over many years is very difficult with the challenges that life throws at us. That's why I created a systematic process that automates most of my saving and investment processes. That takes most of the manual tasks out of my hands so that I can focus on enjoying the present, with my future all taken care of.
