S2E21: Managing the Sandwich Generation Stress: Finances, Emotional and Time

Isaac Ong

Recession, the pandemic and shifting demographics are intensifying the pressures on the ‘sandwich generation’ – those taking care of both their elderly parents and young children. This can put a strain on not just their finances but on their emotional and time capacity as well.

In this episode, our Advisory Team Lead, Loh Yong Cheng, shares his personal challenges balancing the roles, responsibilities and obligations as a sandwiched millennial and provides useful tips on how to manage these challenges in the various aspects.

Meanwhile, stay tune for our next episode with a special guest where we discuss further on the value of wealth advice!
