Testimonial from Dr Jangjit Singh, Shah Alam
I have engaged CF Lieu for 1 on 1 consultation session, and I have to say, he straightened things out for me which my 5 insurance agents never told me for the past 20 years.
I would highly recommend AskCF membership to anyone who need independent financial advice, even though you don't go for the private consultation session (like I did).
Private - Confidential - Anonymous
"We believe piecemeal and ad hoc financial advice should be made affordable & available to everyone, just like paying a visit to the doctor, without any product sale or marketing pitches.
The market should use a platform where they can get the most honest, genuine, non-biased, non-vested advice
That will empower you to make informed decisions about your financial product purchases based on no one's agenda except your own."

The most useful part of the advisory process was that on how you educate me on optimizing my spending on maximizing coverage at the lowest cost. Saved more than RM 6,000 a year for the next 17 years, and that’s not taking into account investing this amount and compounded annually.Saiful Amry Mahat, HR IT Manager, Shell, Cyberjaya

You may ask:
"Why do you charge fee for financial advice? I can get them for free via Google."
True, on the same analogy, you can be your own doctor nowadays via Google.
However, you would still go to see a doctor to confirm if everything is alright.
That's the difference between free info and consultation. We work on the same analogy as GP - a consultation fee per visit.
Since we don't intend to sell you any financial products, charging for advice is sustainable way to compensate us for the time put in to advise you. Also, to upgrade our learning to advise you better.
Remember, there is no free lunch - you can probably get free advice from a product-selling financial agent, but he will expect you to buy his product and being biased about the product he has to offer.
You may also wonder:
"I can learn all of this elsewhere, why should I learn or get advice from you?"
Yea sure….you could search all over the internet...buy TONS of books...talk to lots of insurance agents....go become a CFP…do ALL this research...work as an independent financial adviser….and gain years or experience...
OR….you could just take advantage of my experience. I've done that and I took all that and put it into AskCF.com
AskCF is born after years of of research. I integrate all the contradictory financial advice, eliminate the nonsense, and simplify the whole thing into a cohesive membership website that makes complete sense to both non-expert and experts.
You’re paying for the royal road to this knowledge.
- No wasted time.
- No dead-end paths.
- No nonsense.
What is your time worth? What is it worth for you to get the advice you need now instead of later? The time value of the results should be more than enough to justify the subscription price (not to mention the time saved in learning).
