Samantha Wong joins the show as the first guest from Singapore. We chat about the many innovations that make Singapore the smartest city in the world, how financial planning is evolving in Singapore and the work that FPAS is doing to raise professionalism and increase consumer awareness.

You’ll Learn

  • What makes Singapore the Smartest City in the World.
  • How financial planning technology and business models are evolving.
  • That building the profession should be focused on quality of professionals, not quantity.
  • How FPAS is emphasizing that financial planning isn’t just for the wealth.
  • About Singapore’s interesting pension and savings scheme, the Central Provident Fund (CPF).
    • Additional note on CPF: Apart from the difference in salary contribution, for different age groups the contribution also differs. For example, below 55 years old, the contribution at this time is 37%, comprised of 20% from the employee and 17% from the employer.
