Lai Zhi Bing

Financial Services Consultant

Story

I’m sure many can relate when I say life is a mystery, with many uncertainties and obstacles along the way. If you told me a year ago that I’ll be working as a Financial Services Consultant now, I would have never believed it.

However, I believe everything in life happens for a reason. No matter how small.

Growing up with parents who were older than my friends’, I started to worry for their health at an earlier age. Hence, I joined Red Cross in Secondary school and eventually ended up in NUS Nursing.

Though I picked up the knowledge and skills to take care of them, I always felt like something was missing — retirement.

My family was never well off to begin with and even up till today, my parents are still paying off their housing loan at 60 years old. I’ve always felt bad and wanted to give them the proper retirement they deserve for raising me. Money aside, I also took this career change as a life lesson from my parents to understand financial planning, so I can allow my children to live comfortably in the future.

While this journey has just begun, I’m deeply excited about the road that lies ahead! Little steps turn into big leaps, and big leaps are what can change the world. I may be new and I may still be picking things up, but I’ll always make sure that I’m the hardest worker in the room, not just for me, but for your finances too!
