Learn about investment mindsets, setting financial goals for yourself and your family, and other personal finance tips as a parent.
Young Singaporean families have different personal finance considerations when it comes to managing downside risks and long term investment goals. Also, being time-strapped as corporate individuals, they have limited attention and energy to spend on researching and executing investment initiatives to better plan for family finances.
During this session, You Ning, Endowus Co-CEO and CFO, together with Dawn Fiona Cher, SG Budget Babe, share their changing priorities as they set their financial goals as young parents. They also share insights on how to maximise government grants for children, and how they execute their strategies despite their busy schedules - to invest for a better tomorrow.
