Life is like a marathon and certainly my journey in the financial planning industry is likened to one. I value my work and I value my clients. I take pride in them. It is always a joy for me to gather feedbacks and even more, these testimonials that I have taken time to collect. It is my hope that through this, you will get to know me better...
I have known Jerry for about 6 years now. I am aware of his profession and the nature of his work but there was no thought of engaging his service or using his products. As a friend he did not view me as one of his potential sales target and that is a good thing.
As my sunset years are creeping in slowly, I begin to realize that the financial position I am in needs to be reviewed, urgently. Jerry and I, we sat down for a cup of Kopi O...
Below is my business experience with him.
He is first knowledgeable with his products and ethical in his trade practice.
Professional in attending to every need his client required and request for. Listening and patience seems to be his forte.
I believe that the most comforting experience I had was that his top priority is not just selling the products to me but sharing with me his vision and make me understand the shared valued on his vision. His emphasis on knowing our direction, having the ability to sustain and sowing for the next generation, giving them a head start was simple yet impactful.
As the discussion gather speed, his focus and profiling enable him to provide me with the best solution I was looking for. I was indeed impressed that he is able to help me plant my apple tree in my approaching sunset years and at the same time; an orchard for my children's children. That is amazing.
I would like to say that you are certainly a true asset to your establishment and a valuable representation of your profession.
Thank You So Much Jerry!
It's really been wonderful knowing you. Being 18, I was concerned about how to handle my financial issues and I also needed insurance due to my future career path. I confided in a trustworthy mentor in my church who recommended you to me. Initially, i was nervous about meeting you as I've never had an financial consultant before. But your honesty, sincerity and jovial nature set my heart and mind at ease. Despite our large age gap, I find myself able to talk to you comfortably as a friend. Each meeting with you has truly been enjoyable, I really thank God for sending you.
Irene & Karl:
Jerry was introduced to us only 3 months ago. Being professionals, we tend to be analytical and skeptical of many things in life - insurance and insurance agents being high on the list!
From the 1st meeting, Jerry had already managed to breach the barrier with us. He impressed us as a professional who is well-versed in his line of work and has depth of knowledge beyond his own products. This allowed us to have lively conversations about all sorts of financial ideas that we never had much time to explore in detail. He also gave us options to optimize our coverage to fulfill some key needs in several areas of our life plan.
More importantly, Jerry impressed us as a person who is genuinely concerned about the welfare of his clients. He went out of his way to ensure that we were never inconvenienced during the process of obtaining the plans – and it was a pleasure to work with someone who not only starts well, but ends well too. Jerry definitely sets a strong service benchmark for the insurance industry.
We’re sure that this is a start of a fruitful relationship and we would sincerely recommend Jerry to all our friends!

Jerry is a friend that I have known for 4 years.
Jerry is someone that not only uses his mouth and say but he sincerely believes that it will happen. Though his work schedule is tight, he never fails to spend quality time with his family and friends, like cooking up dinner for his family, seeing movies with friends and fighting with his son, Gabriel
Seeing his kids often reminds me that Jerry is a good fatherly figure to keep that smile on Grace and Gabriel's face.
He is someone of essence, someone that is hard to come by these days. He truly fulfills the saying "a friend in need is a friend indeed."

I “inherited” Jerry when my advisor left the industry. The earlier work relationship was established and comfortable and I did not look forward to interacting with a “newbie”! Jerry’s helpfulness and thoughtfulness eased my reservations – especially when he neatly filed my documents and gave me a written summary – wow!
Like many people, I found it a daunting process when it came to buying these perplexing intangible products with payments over incredibly long time lines! Jerry’s patience and gentle persistence has made me a truly grateful and happy customer– sincere thanks to you Jerry!!
It is a significant luxury to have a life-long financial advisor. I totally appreciate and
value Jerry’s years of experience and commitment to his industry. It has given me
and many of his clients the ease of familiarity and convenience over the years and, I
hope, for many more years to come too…!
Jerry - the recommendations I have made, and will continue doing, are all done with
full confidence that your helpful professionalism will result in successful and
Good luck my friend!

I met Jerry through a friend who had sought his assistance. Jerry
was highly recommended so I took a chance.
The first meeting was pleasant. He seemed to empathize with me
- a neophyte in insurance and investments. He asked very good
questions and tried to understand my needs and goals.
I've never had life insurance or structured investments before.
I've met with dozens of agents/financial planners in my life in
countries where I have lived and was never sold on their pitches.
On hindsight, what drew me to trust Jerry was that he engaged
me in dialogue, he wanted to learn more about me and we discussed needs and goals
over lunch and coffee over several weeks. Jerry wasn't pushy. He knew his products
well but greater than that I believe that he knew me as a person and what my
appetite was for investment.
I must also say that Jerry is very warm and friendly and that the agent-client relationship we have has evolved into a friendship. He keeps in touch not because he wants to sell you more but to genuinely touch base with a friend.
And when I finally am ready to purchase my own home, I will definitely get in touch with him to assist me in getting low mortgage rates.

It’s a given that to be a Personal Financial Advisor, one would
have to be knowledgeable of the various options available for
personal insurance and investment, have a deep understanding
of the profile of his/her client so as to discern the right
instrument, as well as build a relationship based on trust. In
other words, be a professional trusted advisor.
possessing all the above qualities, and more.
In Jerry, I find inspiration to face personal challenges, and overcome them.
And that, to me Jerry did. I hope he touches yours too.

Mr Garry Dick:
As past president of our OUB Manulife/ Manulife Singapore; I have kept in touch with agents and staff as best as I can, from my current residences in the U.S.A. and Canada. I am particularly pleased with the continued progress and professional development of Jerry …… everyone's favorite agent!!
Jerry has always been a source of pride for our company, and is a valued associate. Congratulations Jerry, on yet another step forward!
Jerry has been THE financial adviser of my wife and I for years now. To be exact, it is 10 years one month and 23 days(as at today).
When he first made presentations us, we found him very attentive to our concerns and needs. From day one, we knew we could trust him because he refused to sell us policies that would not meet our needs, though he ends up losing commission.
He also went through other policies we have earlier bought from other companies and took time to explain what the returns for those policies were. He has very professionally advised us on which further policies we would need to complement those that we already have. With his very clear and thorough presentation (in graphs), we better understood our investments. His down-to-earth approach to life also assures us he'll give us practical advice.
Through the years, we feel secure as he looks out for good products that will meet our needs and complement whatever policies we have bought.
When the government allowed for greater use of CPF funds for investments, he helped us make use our CPF funds for investments. What we really appreciate is that he keeps track of the market trends and helps us make investments that have always brought great returns, yet never compromising our concerns. So, we never really had to worry about our investments. Having never ventured into investments at all previously, we have now ventured into the world of financial investments because of the confidence given to us by Jerry. In fact, without Jerry, we would have been much poorer for the future!
Jerry has proven himself to be sincere and honest. Though he earns his living from the commissions he gets, he does not compromise returns for his clients' investments, even if it means not making more from further sales to us. He has genuine concern for others' wellbeing, thus setting him apart from other financial advisers. This is also the reason why he has so many faithful clients who has no qualms in introducing him to their friends.
So, whenever I'm approached by a financial adviser, my reply is always - No thank you. I already have one whom I entrust all my investments with!

statement he made. He do not just want to sell a

ever have. It is not the product, but the service that
Well, my investments have been doing very well for the past 2 years and I believe, will continue to do so, with Jerry's help. Even my fiancee is now engaging his expertise!

Jerry has been a good friend and mentor. When it comes to giving financial advice, he is very detailed and analytical. Despite his many years of experience in this field, he doesn't take them for granted and is always striving towards excellence in his service. Also, he is very objective towards financial services and products. Hence, he will never try to recommend something that you don't need and but will try his best to attend to your needs : )
When I first met Jerry, we didn't start off well actually. In fact we were pretty cool towards each other . Just the occasional "Hi's" and "Hello's" ...........
However, that changed when I approached him for help in some insurances matters. Even though the policies were bought from someone else and not even from Jerry's or his company, Jerry was very willing to help me without expecting anything in return. This showed me that he was sincere and that he was dedicated to helping his clients get the best out of their investments. In fact, he even offered free advice on those portfolios !
Over the years, my husband and I have transferred most of our investments and policies to Jerry knowing that it is in good hands. With his sound advice, we have managed to buy our dream home without much pain and worry about our mortgage. He even helped us to secure a good mortgage with a fantastic interest rate which we couldn't even believe ! There were even times that he sacrificed his earnings to help us get better returns for our investments.
Jerry is hardworking , dedicated and passionate about his career. He sets high standards for himself which translates into better returns for his clients. I remembered once when we liquidated our investments to buy our dream home. For most agents, it would be a problem because their income would be affected, but not Jerry. He was genuinely happy for us. He did give us a "shock" though, because I remembered he told us that he had bad news for us. At that time, the economy was so so down and we were expecting that we were losing our capital after liquidation. But in reality, we made a profit of 15% ............his idea of bad news was that he was expecting a return of 20% instead ! That is Jerry for you.
We have now become firm friends and we wouldn't trust anybody else to handle our finances for us. Thank you Jerry for all that you have done and will keep on doing of us !
