What is wealth management to you?
The opportunity to connect with clients, to appreciate their precious faith and confidence, and be instrumental in achieving their financial goals.
Three things you’ve learned over the past three years (career & personal)?
- Honest work for clients over the years and the hard-earned appreciation from them is the best fuel to deal with the curve balls in the financial markets. The pandemic was an unexpected litmus test for the relationships that we have painstakingly built and I am grateful for the greater heights today.
- There are more ways to learning in our dynamic world and there are more teachers than we imagine. Technology has been a great enabler to achieve valuable resources and acquire new knowledge; it is about consistently taking the first step(s).
- Days are long, years are short; be it career or personal. I find that time becomes more valuable as we continue to race against it to achieve the goals we set for our career and family.
