  MALAYSIAN FINANCIAL PLANNING COUNCIL ORGANISES E-ASPIRATION DAY ON FINANCIAL SERVICES SECTOR OPPORTUNITIES

Thursday 21/10/2021



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.
 
“It is very important to highlight that undergraduate will be the nation’s future leaders; thus they must be equipped with essential life skills which is not only focused in theory but also through practical learning” according to the President of MFPC, Vincent Kwo Shih Kang. “Today, we live in a very challenging world, thus it is very essential to know that having better financial planning could drive you to have a sustainable life in future and makes life easy when making day to day financial decisions” he added.
 
In line with MFPC’s strategic initiative to become a premier financial education provider and to promote financial literacy to all Malaysians, the MFPC Financial Planning e-Aspiration Day is set out to best match the underlying capabilities and inclinations of young Malaysians with rewarding and fulfilling opportunities arising from the existing financial industry. The event enabled undergraduates the opportunity to meet corporate leaders and financial experts of participating firms, while providing employers a platform to scout for potential talents. Malaysia certainly has a strong pipeline of young talent, and the success of our ambitious transformation agenda depends on having the right quantity and quality of talent to sustain the country’s financial sectors. MFPC is proud to be contributing to ensuring a strong and sustainable talent pool capable of meeting the needs of the economy.
