Help a friend

Hi Mr Tan

I have just started work. My classmate and a good friend joined a life insurance company. She asked me to take a life insurance policy from her, to help her to meet her sales target. I like to help her, but will this be disadvantageous to me?

You should take care of your own financial future and make sure that you are buying the right product, as you will be committed for many years into the future.

You can read the FAQ on Financial Planning for the Young.

Many young people joined the insurance field for a few years, and moved to another job. Their clients are then passed to another agent. You may not be serviced by your friend a few years later.

I have never in my life ask my friends to buy insurance from me because I need to meet target.

I used to tell my friend to get the insurance that meet their needs not to help me, a friend.

I have clients whose relative just started out as insurance consultant, but they feel safer to get insurance from me as they are not sure how long their nephew will stay on the line.

Yes, Mr Tan is right to advise. Look into your own financial future more than relations.
