“Financial planning is a passion, I like to help people with honesty and openness. Trust is very important for me. I like to engage people with the vision to have a long-term relationship, and to give them assistance in achieving their goals, to get where they want to be in the future. Having started out in the compliance space, and then moved into investments, my background is a bit different from most financial planners. On my career journey, I realised that I am not a natural sales person. However, I really embrace the philosophy of finding a solution using whichever tools we can. The aim is to assist people, to help them, to encourage them, so that they don’t feel alone in the process of achieving their objectives. Once that is done, it’s easy to recommend a product that will realise those objectives.”
