Happy (Advanced) International Women’s Day (IWD)!
Did you know IWD’s origins date back more than a century ago? That might seem like a distant past, but what it stands for – To honour women in our community, remains remarkably relevant today.
One of my role models, Michelle Obama, once said, “There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish”. She has consistently shown the ability to lead by example, manage her duties, raise two strong girls, and stay in a loving marriage despite external pressure.
On this occasion, it is also vital to recognise how the business community is responsible for gender equality. At The FinLab, we organised our Digital Mumpreneurs Programme (DMP) to empower mumpreneurs to kickstart and/or grow their existing business. Our guest speaker, Rachel Lim from Love, Bonito shared this:
Most women have so much on their plates that 24 hours a day is simply not enough! In the midst of their What she mentioned was a good reminder to all of us, both men and women, that in the midst of hectic schedules, we shouldn’t be afraid to ask for help in our personal lives and in business. The latter is how The FinLab has been assisting the community, and if you haven’t been up to date with us, you can always follow our LinkedIn page.
Sadly, this is also the last week of our DMP programme, and here are some thoughts from 2 of our teammates running the programme:
To those that have helped pave the way to gender equality, thank you. Let us continue to break new grounds.
Till next time,
“The ladies” of The FinLab

UOBAM Invest Corporates – Optimising your investments with ETFs
As part of UOB’s regular review to optimise investments, we will be replacing most of the Unit Trusts with Exchanged Traded Funds (ETFs) with effect from 5 March 2022.
In the current climate of rising volatility in both stock and bond markets, we believe that switching to ETFs may help to eliminate the emotional aspect of investing. Moreover, ETFs offer lower fees and the cost savings will add to the performance in the long term.
Join Dharmo Soejanto, Chief Investment Strategist, UOBAM Invest, as he shares his insights on the optimisation change and how will this affect your investment!
