KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 21 (Bernama) — As part of its strategic thrust to create a bigger pool of financial planners and financial advisers in Malaysia as well as facilitating awareness among the participants of the financial career opportunities available, MFPC Financial Planning e-Aspiration Day was hosted today virtually. This is an annual programme that has been held by the Council since 2017 with a slightly different focus to previous years. This year, the programme’s theme is ‘CSR Connecting Industry Experts’ and it was aimed for over 350 students from 22 universities and colleges in Malaysia and focused wholly on financial career choices. Through an interactive session, participants were given the opportunity to think about and appreciate the diverse range of financial careers that interest them.
The event was also graced by three industry leading speakers from such as Felicia Lee, Associate Director of AIA Elite Academy, John Chan Ninyii, CEO & Founder of YES Financial Sdn Bhd and Shahrul Nizam Zainol, Head of Professional Development Department of Federation of Investment Managers Malaysia as a catalyst to boost interest in the financial planning profession among these university participants. The event also featured eight industry engagement sessions for undergraduates to have direct engagement and conversation with licensed financial planners.
