13 June 2009
Bandar Seri Begawan, Saturday, 13th June 2009.  Baiduri Prestige today held the third and last in a series of seminars for its members as part of its 10th Anniversary celebrations this month.  Divided into a morning and an afternoon session, the seminar was held at the Empire Hotel and Country Club and attracted more than 180 participants.

Mr Thomas Matthew, distinguished speaker from Singapore.
Entitled “Breaking the Millionaire Code: The 4 Elements of Wealth Creation”, it was delivered by Mr Thomas Matthew, a distinguished strategic financial coach on business, finance and management in the Asia-Pacific Region who has helped thousands of individuals and businesses realize their financial goals.

During the highly interactive and informative sessions, Matthew highlighted the various stages in the life cycle of a typical individual, and the various resources available at each stage to address their needs and wants.  These included Generation Y (aged 18 to 25), Generation X (aged 26 to 45), the Baby Boomers (aged 46 to 60) and the Retirees (aged 60 and above).

He shared tips on how to become financially independent early in life by having a strategy.  To start a strategy, one must: (1) have a purpose in life (2) start with an end in mind (3) have a risk management portfolio to protect against timeline disruptions (d) have a wealth management portfolio and (e) have succession planning.

You are considered financially independent, according to Matthew, when you have achieved three things in life: having a home that is fully paid, have savings to cover at least 12 months living expenses, and having income generating asset earning a decent rate of return.

Participants also had the opportunity to learn the different element and personalities of an investor and how to identify one’s own personality profile.
