In light of the current global economic meltdown, perhaps the best way to invest one’s money is to go back to basics. At the recent SME Fiesta, the Professional Investment Advisory Services (PIAS) offered simple investment products like unit trusts and endowment funds for risk-adverse investors, instead of complex bank products such as derivatives.
Established in 2001, PIAS is the second largest financial advisory firm in Singapore, which offers a broad range of financial and business development services which range from risk and tax planning to business income and retirement planning. For their core clientele which range from mid- to high-income earners, the company conducts regular in-house seminars. PIAS has also recently been participating in road shows to attract a wider range of investors.
