most memorable financial advice I ever received came from a woman who
was born during WW1 and lived through the Japanese occupation of Malaya.
She was a tough lady and did well to raise seven children. She used to sell cakes and special biscuits to supplement her income during the difficult post-war times.
She was my beloved grandmother and she had always believed in saving money made from hard work.
And she passed wisdom onto me when I was growing up in Malaysia in my early teens.
today I am a wealth manager with Yellow Brick Road Gladesville based in
a lovely Sydney suburb, and I still haven’t forgotten that advice.
advice was very important in setting me up in my mind that I always
have to make sure I have funds for a rainy day. It was also critical
when my youngest son was born and when I took more than two years off to
help my wife with his disability. I had enough savings to live through
Today, I share this with my kids and I make sure all
my clients have a buffer for any future events before I placed them in
their loans or in providing financial advice. We have a very rich
collection of savings products that can make savings work harder before
using them to buy houses, cars or spending on holidays.
