Wealth Creation through diversification, Business Improvement, Finance funding for Merger/Acquisitions, cultural integration and the impacts on the business and individuals.


I started my finance / wealth career in late 1992 when the Government announced compulsory SG contributions. Joined ANZ in the Corporate Business team in 2003, that was my first introduction to Banking/Credit and Risk.

Focused on attaining my Advanced Diploma of Financial Planning (ADFP), this complimented my banking and credit skill. Providing me with the knowledge and ability to help customers diversify income streams.

Working closely with SME/Corporate and institutional clients diversify income streams through asset class management. Helping intergenerational wealth transference for HNW Private families and succession planning for clients that run their own businesses.

My mission is to provide a simple, clear message that resonates and cuts through the jargon. Taking in consideration today’s busy lifestyles and your own unique circumstances.

I look to tailor solutions to meet your needs; each situation is different. A solution that suits YOU and your requirements.
