Save Young or Save Like Crazy

For the past three weekends, The Sunday Star has been publishing articles related to financial planning. This is due to the fact that 95% Malaysians do not have any financial planning. I can't really blame them because the world at large; media, society and yes, even the Government encourages us to spend! (This is mainly due to our nation's economy that is largely driven by Malaysian consumers' spending power) As a financial planner myself, I applaud the publishing of such articles as it will definitely create more awareness in our spend-first-and-save-late- society. However, reading the article is one thing, acknowledging it and taking concrete steps to address it is a another issue altogether. Nonetheless, I have scanned the article into JPEG format and uploaded it into my blog (The Star takes it off their website after 7 days unless you subscribe to their services). Do take note that due to the sheer size of the image (roughly 1.7MB), it might take a while to load. Feel free to save the image and read it at your own leisure or you can leave your email address and I'll send it to you.
P.S: This article was written by Financial Planning Association of Malaysia (FPAM) and published in the Sunday Star on 17th June 2007.
