Hi, I’m Bernard Foong, Associate Director at IPPFA and ACCA affiliate. I hold a double edge degree in Engineering and Accounting with a diploma in Law. I'm also a Certified Financial Planner and IBF Qualified.
My clients always ask me: Why do you need so many qualifications to be a financial advisor? Well, I believe that a jack of all trades is more useful today in the financial world than a master of one.
Engineering courses gave me the skills to analyze problems, stress test my investment portfolios, and find solutions. My experiences in various commercial settings – a private equity firm, a fintech startup, and even as a one-time owner of an SME – had me handle large sums of money and assets. Law helped me bridge the gaps between the finance and legal world.
Armed with this knowledge, my team and I will strive to provide you with a comprehensive framework that covers everything you need to achieve true financial independence.
