What is your favorite restaurant to take a client or colleague to?

Empress is an excellent Chinese restaurant in the Asian Civilisations Museum. A very unique setting with great food and plenty of vegetarian options as well, which can sometimes be hard to find!

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?

Be kind to people, including yourself.

What was your first job?

Not a paid job but I volunteered at the Singapore Zoo Reptile House, which was a lot of fun and very interesting.

What is the book you recommend to everyone?

What changes do you expect to see in your practice over the next year?

I think we will see more clients shifting from Europe and the US to Asia and the Middle East as they seek to diversify and protect their financial planning and personal affairs.
