Career Guide: Singapore Financial Advisory Firms





This is one part of a multi-part career guide series on the financial advisory career in Singapore. Various aspects will be covered in this career guide.

Are you considering a career as a financial advisor in Singapore?

Contrary to what you will be strongly advised to do, always SHOP for financial advisory firms and SHOP through managers even in the same firm, UNTIL your heart is content. 

Firms will always CHASE you to join them on board because an additional person means additional sales. The sooner the better. 

Do not let other people's agenda affect you. 

This is a career that benefits you and your clients if you are staying for the long run. 

You want to stay long enough to reap the rewards. Hence, choose your firm and manager wisely. 

What are the firms out there to consider?

If you want to be an insurance agent, here are some insurance firms in Singapore:

AIA 
Aviva
AXA
Great Eastern
HSBC Insurance
NTUC Income
Prudential
Tokio Marine Asia Life Insurance

Transamerica Singapore
Friends Provident International
Royal Skandia 

If you want to be a financial advisor, there are 2 types of financial advisory firms you can consider.

The most common one is the Independently Owned Financial Advisory Firm

When you join this type of firm, you are able to broker insurance & investment products from multi-companies to your clients. 

Your renumeration will be based on sales commissions.

The list is not exhaustive as there are many Independently Owned Financial Advisory Firms in Singapore:

AAM Advisory 
CIMB Securities (Singapore) 
DollarDEX Investments
Elpis Financial 
Eternal Financial Advisory 
finexis Advisory 
GYC Financial Advisory 
IPP Financial Advisers 
Javelin Wealth Management 
Life Planning Associates 
New Independent 
Phillip Securities 
Porfolio Builders 
Professional Investment Advisory Services (PIAS)
Singcapital
Sterling Knight 
The Henley Group

The other type of financial advisory firm is the Independent Financial Adviser (IFA). 

Advisors from IFA firms are also able to advise on products from multi-companies but the key difference is that these advisors can earn from fees for dispensing advice to clients. 

Here are some firms which have termed themselves IFAs:

Cornerstone Planners 

Financial Alliance 

First Principal Financial 

Global Financial Consultants 

Jordan Huebner (Asia) 

Promiseland Independent 

Ray Alliance Financial Advisers

  4. New careers often offer less pay, have fewer benefits and even less job security. While it is tempting to change careers in pursuit of a better life, careful thought and planning should be part of any career change.
