What inspires me to help others?
Relocating to the UK in the 90s was very difficult for me and my family. My parents needed financial advice and support because everything was so different to China. Finding good quality financial advice was, and still is to this day, challenging. It is even harder for people that are moving to the UK or for people who don’t fit the stereotypical mould of what a client looks like in financial services marketing…a Caucasian, middle-aged man. My family couldn’t find a financial adviser they could relate to or who understood the dynamics of our culture.
Even today, there is still a real lack of diversity when it comes to the financial services industry. This is what inspired me to get in to financial advice and this drive is what motivated me to join Unividual. Businesses like Unividual, are making financial advice accessible to a wide variety of people and care about being an inclusive and approachable business. This is changing the face of financial services and I am proud to be a part of that change.
As a result of a real lack of support and guidance for my family, it eventually led my parents to financial hardship and they lost the majority of their assets. As children we moved around from city to city, five in total, before eventually settling down in Glasgow where my parents worked hard to make ends meet. Every morning I jump out of bed excited for work, knowing that I can make a difference to families like ours.
