S3E02: The Brain Behind – Discovering Your “Ikigai” with Providend’s Philosophy

Jin Lee

The philosophy of sufficiency serves as the anchor for everything we do here at Providend—whether it’s planning for our clients, investing for them, or providing advice. Sufficiency is about having enough, but the question remains: when is enough truly enough? How do we find contentment in life, and what does contentment mean?

In this week’s Money Wisdom episode, our CEO, Christopher Tan, elaborates on how we can identify the things that are important to us, which he terms as life decisions, and also “ikigai” decisions—those that help us live our day-to-day life in a way that is worth living. Financial decisions can then be arranged to support these life decisions.
