A Monthly Curated Newsletter

As humans, we often like to think we're right, even when we can be wrong at times. Many of us have the unconscious tendency to seek information that support our existing beliefs & disregard or undermine those that do not match ours. But doing so without awareness or questioning can have adverse effects in the way we think, make decisions & live our lives. Today, I'd like to share with you some potential consequences of confirmation bias & what we can do about them.

Serene Khor. Paralegal.

I met Ruth during a yoga retreat and then we become friends. Ruth is very professional and meticulous with her financial planning advice. She is very responsive and helpful whenever I need her helps with my insurance advice or claims. Her advice is tailored to meet my needs and she goes above and beyond to help every step of the way. She is quick to follow up on any questions that I have and is always just a text away. I’ll definitely recommend her to anyone who needs help with financial planning.

Joann Ong. Manager

I like that Ruth is genuine, honest and patient. She doesn’t hard sell, but instead she suggests the best possible plans that cater to my needs. She is very precise in her presentation and is always able to breakdown complex topics into simplified conversation. I would recommend her to my family and friends.

Erik Lane

I am very lucky to have come across a consultant like Ruth. She has been very professional, reliable and has proven to be very trustworthy in our dealings. She also happens to possess a fantastic sense of humor (which of course, I appreciate tremendously). But in all seriousness, Ruth is very dependable and always has my back, despite the hour of the day. She has proven this on more than just one occasion. I would recommend Ruth highly as I do not know of a more professional consultant amongst those that work with my peers.

Lisa

Ruth has been my consultant for years now. Although I met her by chance, I am happy for that! I feel that she genuinely cares about and wants to make a real connection with her client. She would listen to my concerns before trying to provide a solution. She is patient in explaining and finding middle ground between minimising my future risk and ensuring my comfort and confidence on the plan. I also appreciate that she gives her client enough space and time to think and consider about the financial plan throughout the process. Thanks Ruth!

Mei Ying & Terence

We met Ruth to review the multitude of insurance policies that we already had. Having bought them some time ago, we were unsure of our existing coverage and wanted to know if they were adequate and how we could make plans for our growing family. Ruth explains our policies in a way that was so easy to understand and recommended us policies that catered to our specific needs. She has also been really approachable and prompt in responding to any questions - important qualities anyone would want in an financial consultant! We have nothing but compliments for her and would highly recommend her to friends and family!

Dr Claris Shi. Ministry of Health

I usually shy away from Financial Consultants but Ruth was so friendly and genuine, and didn’t laugh at my lack of financial planning knowledge! She took time to go through all my policies and identified areas where I needed coverage. She definitely goes above and beyond her call of duty and is so easy to talk to when I have any questions.
