Vincent Tey, CFP®
Executive Director and Head of Advisory Team
With almost 3 decades in the wealth management and financial planning industry, Vincent understands and experiences first-hand the impact on families when financial decisions are made. Sadly, poor money advice remains prevalent in the industry despite multiple efforts to increase its competency.
Vincent believes that to help his clients build wealth with certainty, it is important to get the sequence right – to start with their purpose and life goals and charting a journey that is sustainable and comfortable for them. Having found Providend’s planning philosophy in strong alignment to his own, he joined the firm in 2001 as one of the founding members to provide honest, independent advice with his clients’ best interests in mind.
Understanding that life is never straightforward, he makes sure to always be there for his clients when life throws them a curveball. His mission is to work with his clients to create a bespoke wealth plan for them and support them in achieving their purpose and life goals no matter what happens along the way.
Professionally, Vincent is a Certified Financial Planner and a member of the Financial Planning Association of Singapore. Vincent is also often quoted in the mainstream media such as The Business Times and The Straits Times for his expert opinions and was also a speaker representing the Securities and Investors Association of Singapore (SIAS), an industry association that partners MoneySENSE to conduct talks to educate Singaporeans on financial matters.
On a personal level, Vincent is outgoing and enjoys a conversation with almost everyone. He is a great listener and finds himself fascinated when others share their experiences and life stories. As an avid outdoor adventurer, Vincent believes money is best spent creating memories and is working on collecting a treasure trove of memories which he can savour and recall throughout the rest of his life.

Prior to knowing about Providend, I used to be very skeptical of financial advisors. Ever since knowing Christopher, Vincent and the team at Providend, I have come to trust Providend on the work that they do.
I really appreciate their sincerity and their 100% focus on my needs rather than trying to sell me any products.
Their advice goes beyond just financial and retirement planning, it’s also about expanding my world view and the impact I can have on my family and myself. They are my trusted advisors and I would recommend you to have a chat with them!
Meticulous planning and sound, sensible advice. Vincent Tey is patient in listening to our needs and prompt in his updates.
I value my Financial Advisor and the management staff at Providend for their advice and services. I find them highly responsive and professional, ever ready to attend to my requests and answer my questions.
I like the management's philosophy of "a family serving families." I am confident of their expertise and trust their mission to serve their customers. They don't promise to perform miracles with my money - I don't expect them to. I know they are doing their best for me.
Vincent had been very patient to walk through my current insurance plans, investments committed, my needs to advise where are the gaps as well as any duplicates to clean up. He also reviews the investments with me on yearly basis to highlight what is doing well or if anything to highlight.
A very structured approach to long term investment, know what you are insured of and the yearly review helped to give some sort of peace of mind that someone is eye balling how the investment is doing.
I have dealt with various FAs and it is only with Providend that I felt comfortable enough to entrust my investments and Financial Planning with.
Vincent is very reliable and professional in his dealings, knowledgeable, transparent and honest as well, reflecting the values of the company. No regrets.
Providend takes their tagline "A Family Serving Families" seriously. They've taken care of my family's needs in a relational way and I've grown to trust their objective, non-commission based opinion and advice. Their fee-only, non-biased approach is one of the main reasons I've stuck with them through the years.
Providend has helped my wife and me in addressing our financial planning with regards to retirement, insurance and children education needs.
Their advises are based on transparent, rational and holistic approach on what really matter to you over long term. We have been satisfied with our investment portfolio and returns.
Getting good investment returns and my portfolio is holding up well even in the recent down markets. The personalised support has been a huge plus.
I have been a client of Provided for over 3 years and am please with their investment methodology of securing long term passive income for retirement.
Providend first came to my attention because of their 'no-commission' ethos, which I felt was the right approach for financial advisory. Having met Vincent 1.5 years ago and having him go through my family's financials, I found him to be knowledgeable (I am a financial professional with >10yrs market experience), and his advice to be sensible and sincere.
In terms of portfolio performance, while no one can predict markets and investment returns, my Providend portfolio has so far held up reasonably well despite recent market volatility. The main funds that I am invested in have generally outperformed its peers (65-75th percentile YTD and 70-86th percentile over 1y).
Unlike other financial services companies who are attracted to "flavour of the month" type of investments, Providend has been consistent over the years I've work with them. Their investment approach and philosophy is clear. Their services is honest and responsive.
Providend manages my investments and the majority of my savings is being invested well. I feel assured and trust Providend's management of my money.
Glad to learn about Providend's Spirit and Purpose. It is an assurance of your Customer First approach. Great Culture! Thank you Providend!
