Ms Peh Rui Xiang / DBF (Banking) graduate 2012 /
Just like any graduating students, I began to seriously ponder about my further education and career choices towards the end of last year. Besides Banking and Finance, I have diverse interests in other areas like philosophy, mathematics, economics, law, etc. This decision was made easier for me after I decided to enrol in the Associate Financial Planner (AFP) course conducted by Financial Perspectives. Through this program, I gained a better understanding of the challenges and career prospects of financial planners in the wealth management industry.
With the successful completion of the AFP examination, and my good results in the Financial Planning module, my course mate Yap Siang Pin and I were awarded the Associate Wealth Planners (AWP) scholarships. This scholarship will enable us to complete the next level of certification. I would like to give special thanks to Financial Perspectives Pte Ltd for their sponsorship, as well as my lecturers for guiding and helping me to achieve the AFP designation. Now that I have completed the AFP, I am looking forward to complete the Associate Wealth Planner (AWP) certification and finally to become a full-fledged Certified Financial Planner (CFP). I would sincerely recommend this program to fellow DBF students who are keen to develop their careers in wealth management.
