“Putting the client’s interest first is the core belief and very foundation of my practice. It is an honour to have a panel of judges with such a diversity of experiences and approaches review and agree that my work for my client is adequate and worthy to earn the recognition of Malaysian Financial Planner of The Year Award (MFPYA) for both 2016 and 2017. The award is a bonus in comparison to the recognition and acceptance. There is nothing more important than to know my work has value and will positively impact my client’s life.
The process of the contest gave me the opportunity to rethink and re-examine my own philosophy and approach. It also gave me the chance to reflect and think on possible ways to improve my practice so that I can become a better CFP Professional to help my clients improve on their current financial foundation, which subsequently will enable them to pursue their dreams, ultimately leading to a fulfilling life.
We are fortunate to have association such as the Financial Planning Association of Malaysia (FPAM) who always takes a proactive role to promote financial planning awareness. MFPYA is definitely one of the best initiative ever undertaken by the association and hopefully we will see more Licensed Financial Planners with similar aspirations become recognised via MFPYA for the professional work they do.”
