S2E14: The Brain Behind – Mitigating the Conflicts of Interest in the Financial Advisory Industry

Did you know that back in 2013, a panel set up to review the financial advisory industry has rejected an outright ban on commission for financial advisers in Singapore?

In this episode, Chris shares his thoughts behind this matter, one that is close to his heart, and also elaborates further as to why the commission-based approach actually makes more economic sense for individuals with less complex needs as well as ways on how we, as consumers, can mitigate this conflict of interest if we choose to engage a commission-based adviser.

Meanwhile, stay tune for the next episode where we discuss how your insurance plan differs depending on your life stage.
