I’m an Economist working in a multinational bank and a recently-licensed Sunlife financial advisor. My financial independence journey began when I read Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad, Poor Dad ten years ago, when I graduated from college. Since then, I’ve decided to save aside a portion of my salary, no matter how small so I can start investing and building my asset portfolio. I opened my first mutual fund account in Sunlife in 2009, my stock trading account in BPI Securities in 2010. To further guide me in stock investing, I also subscribe to Bo Sanchez’s truly rich club.
