Unless you plan on living forever like Christopher Lambert in Highlander, all of us will have to confront our mortality – and the mortality of the people we love – at some point in our lives. With the advent of COVID-19, the need to stay protected is now more dire than ever.
Here in Singapore, the COVID-19 pandemic has made us even more aware of why we should protect ourselves – and those we care for – in the event of critical illness, hospitalisation and death.
Furthermore, in a survey conducted by Fullerton Fund Management, it was found that the pandemic has played a major role in getting locals – particularly those aged between 31 and 40 – to kick start their retirement planning.
Given the current climate, we thought that it was only apt we launched The Prudent People. In this brand new interview series, we share the stories of financial consultants and the people they protect through careful finance management.
We hope their stories will touch your hearts and inspire you to get yourself insured.

The Prudent People | “People always say that they don’t have time to pursue something, but that’s just an excuse. To live life without accomplishments feels like you’re not living at all. If you want to do something that makes you fulfilled, do it. Go do it while you still have the time.”
The Prudent People | “The most rewarding aspect of what I do is giving my clients peace of mind. When they sign on the dotted line, they can be assured that if anything happens to them, they are covered and protected…”
