Financial Services Consultant

Story

When I told my family, friends and even strangers that I am leaving my job as an Auditor with Deloitte to take the skies and fly with Singapore Airlines, I got surprised responses.

“What a drastic change!” they would say.

Despite all that, I have never wavered from my decision and was determined to see it through. Some would say I YOLO-ED 😂

“Why?” comes the next question.

I have always been someone who follows her interests, living life as I would like, instead of following what was the norm.

I was ticking off bucket lists, an explorer, a risktaker but at the same time, always following my gut instincts and to follow through once I made a decision to follow a path.

Flying with Singapore Airlines has been a recurring thought ever since I was a teenage girl in Cedar Girls’ School. But it was just that, a thought.

One day, my brother came home excitedly sharing that he was accepted as a Flight Steward for Singapore Airlines. He asked me cheekily if I was jealous.

At that time, I was working as an Auditor and felt that the work that I do, while important, was not meeting a level of fulfilment and purpose I was seeking.

In that moment, I asked myself why am I putting my 110% into something I felt no passion in?

I gathered my courage, decided to take a leap of faith and went for the interview. I got in after the first try and thought, this is it, I am living my dream.

It was one of the best decisions of my life.

In the air, it was humbling to have passengers write compliment letters which was a rewarding testament to the excellent service provided.

I credit the company for developing a strong culture of striving for excellence and taking pride in everything we do, and this was a trait I valued cultivating the most and still do, to this day.

As I sing praises, I also had reservations in making that a life-long career. It has served me some of the happiest, soul fulfilling experiences of my life, yet my heart is with my loved ones.

It was important for me to stay in Singapore, where home is, so I can always be there for my family. As we grow older, our parents and loved ones are also ageing.

I have had witnessed instances where a fellow crew member would receive unfortunate news of a loved on passing or severely sick while overseas and they would need to sit through an agonising 13 hour flight before they could be with their family.

Alas, COVID-19 struck, and the aviation industry was badly hit. This catapulted the need to make hard but practical decisions.

With those reasons, I chose to pursue a viable option that could amalgamate all my interests, my strengths, my personality and where I could fulfil the pertinent purpose I have been searching in a career, all in one.

As I reflected, my past experiences had an important part to play in helping me conclude that being a financial advisor was a perfect fit.

I came from a family of 5 with my mother being the sole breadwinner. From a young age, I understood the importance of being financially free and independent, especially for a female in this time and age.

The consistent thought of achieving financial freedom contributed to me having an interest in finance.

I went on to pursue a degree in Accounting & Finance and served 3 good years in one of the top 4 financial firms in the world.

At that time, having a sudden source of income was exciting and it was human nature to splurge and “reward” yourself for working hard.

However, had I known better regarding financial planning like I do today, I could have better allocated my resources and better planned for my future.

That is what I would love to help my clients with, such that they may avoid financial mistakes I have made in the past.

Throughout my life experiences, there was a common factor that brought me joy and that is interacting and understanding people by making meaningful connections.

Most importantly, it is in my natural personality to protect the people I care about and a pertinent way I could do that was to help them protect their financial interests.

My goal is to ensure that my clients will always be financially independent, yet still be able to enjoy the pleasures of life thoroughly, and to always be able to support themselves should life adversities hit.

This has proven one too many times, to be a real concern.

With that, being a financial advisor made absolute sense to me.

There was no one triggering factor that made me pursue this career, but it was a series of personal experiences that has led me to believe that being a financial advisor would fulfil the purpose in life I have been seeking.

This in turn motivates me to service my clients in the most value-adding and impactful way possible.

I met Aisyah during our training days in SQ hence we were friends since then and I’m glad she approached me after her career switch. I have troubles trusting previous agents no matter how genuine they seemed as the connection just wasn’t there. I was thankful that I had her to handle all my queries and doubts as much as she could and I’m so glad she was so patient (+ points!) with me throughout the process. In my opinion, she takes pride in her work, highly self-motivating and hardworking, definitely someone credible!

Katrina YapFlight Stewardess

Aisyah has been one of my best and most trusted friend. But I had my doubts when it involves financial planning as I felt like it was a sensitive topic. But I’m glad that I approached her.

She was a real pleasure to talk with about my insurance plans and the best thing of all, she made it feel really warm and not tense like how most Insurance Agent would. She takes great pride in what she does. If I ever had any sense of doubt about anything, she’ll never fail to make me understand each and everything that has been presented. To sum it up, a very personable individual to work with. It allows me to sleep well to know that I am well protected. Thank you Aisyah!

Paul Sean PatrickFlight Steward

Met Aisyah when she was still flying and started to only being close only during the CB period last year. I’ve seen and know the effort she puts in to actually get her license. The leap of faith she took to clip her wings for this new venture. If that is not passion, I don’t know what is.

Like a lot of us, we are pretty adamant about our finances/investments and we prefer to be safe. She provides the assurance we need and is always there to answer all your queries (There was once I asked her a question on my CPF accounts late night and she replied me back in 30 seconds!).

She really does take time to evaluate your financial needs and comes up with the best fit plans. Never pushy. No hard selling, just her caring about you.

Aisyah is passionate, sincere and thorough and I definitely know that I’m in good hands! Thank you Aisyah!

Shafiq RahmanLeading Steward

I feel confident & safe in Aisyah’s hands as she gives valuable advice & only recommends plans that I need. She also balances professionalism and friendship very well. Her responses are almost immediate despite knowing how busy she is & helps me get my claims approved very efficiently. I can always depend on her to be there for me.

Emily NgProjects & Partnership Executive

As a fresh graduate looking at insurance policies for the first time, I felt lost as there were many insurance plans available & terms that i was unfamiliar with.

I was later introduced to Aisyah by a friend. She walked me through options best suited for me and was very helpful & patient whenever i had questions or doubts.

I knew from the get-go that Aisyah was someone i could trust & rely on, mainly because of her professionalism and knowledge in financial planning. I was also comfortable talking with her about my personal finances and she definitely come across as someone who is very genuine & dedicated to her clients. I like to think that she’s more than just my financial advisor, i think I’ve gained a friend too!

NisaBanking Analyst

I’m thankful that Aisyah took over my existing policies and helped me in reviewing & restructuring my portfolio. She was very patient in addressing all my queries and only recommended policies that were lacking in my portfolio after taking into consideration my financial needs and goals. Although we are good friends, she’s very professional and highly competent in providing financial planning advice. I’m thankful to have chosen my trusted friend to be my financial consultant.

ShayleneAccountant

Recently decided to have Aisyah take over my existing policies. Even though there wasn’t anything in it for her, she never hesitated to answer my queries and advised me on making smart financial decisions. She is very dedicated, skilled and personable.

Since I started adulting, Aisyah has been the only person I have turned to to answer my questions. Income tax, how to maximise my CPF, reexplaining my insurance policies - whatever it was, she always has the answers!

Thank you for always being there!

RachelFlight Stewardess

Aisyah has been my good friend for 10 years. Throughout our decade of friendship, she has been an understanding, accommodating and trustworthy friend. Therefore, i have no hesitations in signing up for multiple policies with her. I firmly believe and trust that my policies are in very good hands and that i will be well taken care of. Aisyah’s principle of being a friend rather than just another advisor ensures she is extremely dedicated at her job and also have her client’s best interests at heart. Great job working with you. Keep going! Rooting for you!

HamzahBanking Analyst

We really appreciate the care you took throughout the process thus far, especially since I’m quite the home body and both of us have erratic schedules. Video conferencing was a blessing! The whole process was very clear and was a breeze. It wasn’t as daunting as i thought. Honestly for me, i felt very assured cause we will have a trusted advisor once we move forward with the plans. I think that’s what won me over on top of the fact that you are very straightforward. Since i do a lot of convincing in my job too, i prefer when sales are done with no fluff. It makes me feel you are more trustworthy and genuinely appreciate the hustle, hard work and sincerity you put into your work!

Dzul & Syafiqah

It has been a great pleasure working with you to plan for my rainy days. Very chill experience with zero pressures when recommending your policies. Your fun loving and cheerful demeanour also makes it a very enjoyable process, and you were very patient with my hesitancy and general lack of knowledge about financial planning.

RobertDoctor

Aisyah is a very friendly & approachable person which made the reviewing process very comfortable.

I had existing policies prior to meeting her & was doubtful that there was much she could do for me. However, she was knowledgeable in her understanding of my policies from other insurers & helped me consolidate my portfolio systematically which gave me instant clarity.

She was truthful of the areas I was well covered for & adviced on what I could improve on. I already trusted her as a friend but this showed she was reliable and professional in her work. It’s a relief to have someone trustworthy to turn to when advice is needed.

ClementInvestment Manager

I was very taken by Aisyah’s straightforward yet inviting approach to financial advising, something that really shines through in the way she patiently and skillfully navigates our various conversations. She give her clients the time and space to share their concerns & addresses them timely.

What i really appreciate is how she strives to truly understand her clients, as opposed to dispensing generic advice that does not speak directly to their concerns. It can feel quite daunting to share about one’s financial situation, but Aisyah’s patient and welcoming attitude made the process comfortable & i now feel better supported in my financial journey!

JayManager

Thank you for curating a portfolio that is tailored to my situation and needs. I appreciate the effort you took in ensuring that the policies i take up are within my budget yet still provide the comprehensive coverage I need. Your explanations are also very easy for me to understand as I was afraid jargon words would be used. Overall it was a very non-intimidating process and I appreciate you checking in on me beyond policies periodically especially during my birthday and special holidays!

RaihanTechnician

The first thing that struck me most was how responsive & efficient Aisyah is. This gives me comfort as i am certain i can rely on her to attend to my needs & queries especially in an emergency. She is also extremely knowledgeable and unbiased in her recommendations making her very trustworthy in my eyes.

Thank you for being patient and assuring throughout the multiple sessions!
