Great Family:Health and Financial Services

Learning how to manage your money is just as important as making money. When we talk about financial planning, we know there are many people in the Chinese community that are confused about different financial products or picking the right insurance and retirement plan. In this month’s episode of Great Family, we’ll be talking in-depth about this topic. Our guests in this episode are Clara Tang, First Vice President/Private Client Manager of East West Bank, and Bay Area Health Insurance Expert, Robert Ju. They will be giving us some advice on how to manage your money wisely.

Here is the tip provided by Robert:

“If you are a new immigrant in the United States, you have to change the way that you used to think. Here in America, you can’t use money to solve all the problems. You should ask for help from the professionals. They will help you to make a decision that suits your needs.”
