Ask The Panel – Questions on Wills, Taxes, CPF, SIPP, Pension, Health & More


DATE & TIME: FRIDAY 1st NOV, 2019, 6:30-9:30PM


Join us for “Ask the Panel” event covering financial planning and protection for Expats / PR / Singaporeans in Singapore. Relocating from one country to another presents cultural, professional and personal challenges, and financial planning can become a secondary priority as a result. The key goal of this session is to provide expats with a single forum in which to air questions and receive structured advice from industry experts, on the critical topics that need to be considered: Wills & Trusts, Tax, Health Insurance, Pension Transfers, and CPF.

Invitation includes dinner & drinks.
