Personal Finance 101
Asked on 05 Dec 2018
Share your experience with the community here if you have attended the event. What did you like and what can we improve on for the next meetup? Speakers were Kenneth Lou (cashflow management and investment) and Loh Tat Tian (Insurance basics). Held at the LifeLong Learning Institute on the 5th of December 2018.
Friendly & pretty emcee, spontaneous and generous speakers, and a community of helpful and enthusiatic people learning about finance. I like that it was free of charge to public as an introductory thing.
Launch more sessions for different topics, different age groups and more on CPF as well, hope To attend more!
thanks seedly peeps :)
Dinner was provided! The event was quite informative however the session is really short. There are still a lot of things more that can be shared. I think more info would be better but then that would take a longer time. I wish they would share the slides though, because I was engrossed in the talk and did not have time to take down notes or photos or think of questions. They explain things quite clearly. I would attend future sessions (102 perhaps?). Either way it is a good start/intro to your own money management.
Edit: would be great to explain more about selling away our policies! Rather than giving it up totally and get the basic refund I would rather get a higher amount. Also, would be great to say more about the savings account thing about the 1% interest

It's a very good event with interesting topics and the buffet is also very good. I like the sharing by both Kenneth and Tat Tian. I hope to have more topics on investment and other financial planning.
Great sharing with lots of learning opportunities. Highly appreciate the session
The event gave me a great introduction towards in the area of personal finance. For somebody who was practically clueless about it, I now have greater confidence in starting my journey towards better financial management. The QnA section was really useful and I wish it could be a bigger Segment in future events
I felt that Kenneth was a very engaging and lively speaker and he was able to break down the financial terms into something very simple and easy to understand.
however I feel That maybe the link between the title of this event ”what your agents won’t tell u” can be made clearer during the session.

Course was interesting to teach the basics of insurance! ILP segment & implications on 3rd party buying over policies could be better answered
Very Informative! I like the speakers! Didn't bore me
Speakers were engaging and topics were good. Could share more in-depth next talk!
Very informative and educational. Appreciate the speakers to keep it light with occasional jokes on a very dry topic.
advice was practical and relevant
wanted more in depth discussion on investments and insurance
Could you share the slides? Also, could the attendees get a bottle of water? The food was a nice gesture but it seemed abit overkill.
Very informative session and interesting topics covered. Would be great if there could be more details on the insurance portion with more scenarios or examples provided. Great for beginners like us nonetheless!
It's a concise session with useful information, though I expected more detail coverage on insurance (as the session title suggested). The ending game was fun and engaging.
Sorry if some food was wasted. I checked beforehand and no mention on buffet dinner would be provided.
it’s a good session for newbie to know about personal finance matter. maybe in the future event can be more specific (one area) rather than cover 3 areas but just the big picture only.
Very insightful event!! First step to my personal finance!
The session is very enjoyable and speakers are engaging
The event was well organised and the speakers presented the topics in a simple and easy to answer format. Keep up the good work
It’s informative especially for beginners who needs explanations on various finance terms. speakers are knowledgeable!
