If you have a financial need or goal but you're unfamiliar with how they can be addressed, seeking financial advice from a financial adviser is an option you can consider.

Only firms authorised by the Monetary Authority of Singapore to provide financial advice can do so. Such firms are called financial advisers. The individuals representing such firms are often referred to as financial advisory (FA) representatives.

This starter pack will give you a better idea of how to work with an FA representative. You'll also learn about:

  • Finding a financial adviser and an FA representative
  • When to get advice
  • What to expect from your FA representative
