On 27 July 2017, Mr Vincent Ee, Managing Director of Financial Alliance, received the Singapore Quality Class Star and People Developer plaques from Professor Cham Tao Soon, Chairman of Spring Singapore’s SQA Governing Council, which draws up policies and guidelines for the awards programme and approves the awards recipients.
After Financial Alliance first became a Singapore Quality Class organisation in 2008, we were elevated to the higher level of Business Excellence when we achieved the Singapore Quality Class Star status in 2012. In 2017, Financial Alliance joins 83 other organisations and institutions (such as ACRA, A*STAR, ANZ, CAAS, CDL, Fei Yue, Maybank, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Law, Qian Hu, RHB Bank, Singapore Polytechnic, Vicom, etc) in receiving the Singapore Quality Class Star recognition.
Financial Alliance has been recognised by Spring Singapore to be a People Developer organisation since 2008, six years after it was established as an Independent Financial Advisory (“IFA”) firm.
The Singapore Quality Class Star and People Developer certifications are key parts of Spring Singapore’s Business Excellence (“BE”) programme, which provides organisations with a roadmap for excellence and the understanding on how to improve their performance. The assessment is based on the internationally benchmarked BE framework to obtain external perspectives of the assessed organisation’s strengths and areas for improvement.
Receiving the Singapore Quality Class Star and People Developer certification is a high point in the short history of Financial Alliance. The assessment process was thorough and stringent, covering depth and breadth in business strategies and how well they are applied, as well as evaluating the level of alignment among stakeholders to move forward as one.
The dual recognition serves as an important validation that we are on the right track and it encourages us to maintain a very high standard in every aspect of our business. After almost a decade, we remain the only IFA firm to hold both statuses.
Innovation and progressiveness has defined our organisation since its inception in 2002. As we celebrate 15 years of offering impartial financial advice facilitated by constant improvements in all aspects of our business, we thank the entire Financial Alliance team for their commitment to excellence, and for joining forces to constantly transform Financial Alliance into a better organisation.
