Jenelle Ong Jia Ling

B.Fin (Hons)
Financial Services Consultant

I believe there are few coincidences and that almost every event has a reason. For tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today. When disaster strikes, the time to prepare has passed.
Q.1 Tell us more about yourself?

I graduated with a diploma and degree in Finance, hence, I’ve always had this knack for investment and financial planning. I have great zest for travelling, adventure thrills and taking on challenges where the sky is the limit. I enjoy conversing with people from all walks of life to broaden my horizons. This sharing of knowledge and expertise continually enriches and inspires me.

Q.2 Why did you choose this profession?

I have prior years of working experiences in various corporations, and I realized that working for corporations no longer appears to be a choice for me. I neither like politics of any kind, nor am I seeking to climb up the corporate ladder. Life is short. If you do not start creating meaning to your life, your life will end with no stories to tell.

I’m a knowledge chaser, constantly seeking to upgrade myself, especially when it comes to financial planning – the whats and hows of building and protecting my nest till old age. As I come from a humble background, I can totally understand what is called financial burden, especially when unforeseen situations catch you during bad times. It will be meaningful and useful if I can share and impart knowledge to people in their financial planning – helping them reach their financial goals, or helping them relieve financial burdens when they need it most. It is extremely satisfying to see people’s lives improve. The smiles and gratitude on their faces are priceless.

Q.3 Why Strategic Alliance?

Initially, I experienced resistance in joining the insurance industry. I was skeptical and biased of the way some agents are selling their policies, the way they are being trained, and how they are only targeting to sell a particular product with the highest commission. However, Strategic Alliance teaches me the true value of this insurance industry. Educating and helping people to better their livelihoods with a needs-based analysis is our upmost priority. MISSION always comes before COMMISSION!

Q.4 What are your expertise and experience?

I’m adept at dealing with problems, good at figuring out what is wrong and resolving it. I also connect with people comfortably. These two strengths have put me in good stead in this industry. The needs of every client are unique, and every financial plan is carefully customized to ensure that clients are well-covered, whether individually or on the corporate level.

Q.5 Share a memorable experience / belief:
