STANDARD Financial Adviser Sdn Bhd (Standard FA), Malaysia’s largest financial advisory group headquartered in Kuala Lumpur and operating in the northern region has expanded its presence in East Malaysia, with its recent appointment of Securities Commission (SC) and Bank Negara-licensed financial adviser representatives Yung Chung Chai and Teo Yee Meng in Miri and Kota Kinabalu respectively, in addition to existing licensed representatives based in Kuching and Bintulu, a press release stated.
As shared by the Chief Marketing Officer, Alvin Tan, during the company’s 15th anniversary celebration, “Now with our nationwide presence of licensed financial advisers, including East Malaysia, this will enable Standard FA to serve and support our clients more effectively. We are confident that with our 113.5 per cent growth in business over the last four years and with exciting new market developments like Asean Passport in 2014, an initiative by SC being an opportunity for investors to participate in funds registered in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand, we shall strengthen our market leader position.”
During the third quarter of this year, a series of private client event was held in Kuching, Miri and Kota Kinabalu to introduce new absolute return investment strategy to the East Malaysian market. ‘A Toast to Wealth!’ was an exclusive wine dinner hosted by Standard FA for its prestigious clients. The events are jointly conducted with Asia Euro Wines.
Being the No 1 financial adviser dealer group by having the most number of licensed Financial Adviser Representatives (FAR) which is one third of the total in the industry, Standard FA has come a long way since its establishment in August 1999. Today, they are embarking on the East Malaysia expansion drive led by Lee Khee Chuan, a Securities Commission-licensed financial adviser representative and Director of Practice and Advisory Management for East Malaysia based in Kuching.
