Thank you for visiting my website. I’m Jarrad Brown and I’m the Trusted Fee-Based Financial Adviser in Singapore

The Jarrad Brown Difference
The Smartest Way to Receive Financial Advice
As a Fee-Based Financial Adviser in Singapore, my #1 priority is you, my client. I firmly believe in complete transparency with my clients to build trust and a long-term relationship. It’s important to me to understand your holistic financial needs and goals to help guide you through the financial world with confidence.
When you choose to work with me, you are choosing to work with an Adviser who is fee-based, relationship-focused, transparent and somebody who holds your interests first at all times. My clients take comfort in referring me to their friends and family as they experience the care and guidance I provide for their own finances.
I work as a Fee-Based Financial Adviser in Singapore, unaligned to banks or insurance firms, so that you can have peace of mind that I will only recommend strategies that are in your best interest.
As an Fee-Based Financial Adviser, there are no hidden commissions that I don’t disclose to my clients. You can take comfort in knowing that your interests are always front of mind.
Alignment of Interests
With all of my clients, I ensure that our interests are aligned. Simply put, my remuneration is tied to your success in achieving the financial goals we help you to plan for.
I work with a limited number of clients so that I can ensure I have the time and capacity to nurture these relationships with the care they deserve. This means that I look for long-term relationships where I can add significant value.
Comprehensive Financial Advice Across a Range of Areas
I provide holistic, comprehensive financial advice to my clients to ensure that nothing is overlooked, and I can ensure that they are making the most of their time offshore. Below are the key services that I provide:
Critical Illness Insurance
Would your family be cared for if you were diagnosed with a critical illness? What cover do you already have in place? Ensure that your loved ones are protected and could continue to meet everyday expenses should the unforeseen occur.
Life Insurance provides financial security and peace of mind for you and your loved ones should the unforeseen occur. Could your family continue to meet their expenses if you were no longer around? What plans do you have in place?
International Health Insurance is medical insurance designed to cover your health and medical expenses while you’re living abroad. As an expat, it is important to be certain you’re protected before an unforeseen health event occurs.
Income Protection insurance is designed to help you get ‘back on your feet’ by covering up to 75% of your regular income, on a monthly basis, should you be unable to work due to an injury or illness, so that you can remain focused on your recovery.
By putting a Will in place, this ensures that your wishes will be carried out after you pass. Many of us realise that we are not invincible when it’s too late…how are you ensuring your loved ones will be cared for?
Estate Planning is a process that extends beyond just preparing a Will. It also includes Enduring Power of Attorney, Trust planning and ensuring your children are cared for with Temporary and Permanent Guardianship.
It is important to start planning for your retirement early. The earlier we start saving for our retirement, the less we need to put away on a regular basis to achieve our goals of financial independence. How are you planning for your retirement..?
The most valuable asset you will ever have is your ability to earn an income. Are you making the most financially of your time abroad? Are you taking advantage of the lower tax rates? Are you saving your disposable income on a regular basis?
Constructing a clear investment strategy involves a number of decisions including your savings strategy, financial goals and investment vehicles. With global assets at our fingertips, we guide you through constructing a diversified portfolio.
What is your net cash flow on a regular basis? Are you keeping track of your income and expenditure. Many expats simply take the ‘head in the sand’ approach when it comes to managing their own cash flows. Start tracking your finances today.
Investing in various jurisdictions that potentially reduce tax burdens and levies imposed can be an excellent strategy to invest in a tax-efficient manner. It is important to weigh up the costs and benefits of such a strategy before proceeding.
I work with a range of external specialists to ensure a seamless process for my clients. I have built up long-term relationships with property investment experts, trust lawyers, will specialists and mortgage brokers to assist my clients.
As a fee-based financial adviser, I regularly provide valuable updates for expats and locals in the region covering a wide range of areas. This could be related to investment strategies, insurance updates or other areas.
Hear what my clients have to say about working with me
As a truly independent, fee-based financial adviser, I constantly put the needs and interests of my clients first. You can read the testimonials of some of my clients below.
“Jarrad provides relevant, timely and honest advice in relation to my financial position. I recommend using Jarrad to review your goals and objectives. You will not find a more honest and reliable guy, its nice to have the services of someone who actually listens to your situation and tailors a solution accordingly.”
Paul McKay, JP Morgan Chase
“I have been expatriate in the Asia Pacific region for over 12 years and had a constant stream of advances from a large range of “consultants” promoting wealth creation. When Jarrad contacted me I chose to give him a hearing and he convinced me that he would manage my investment as if it was his own. His approach was fresh and appealing and since that meeting his open and transparent consultation has been fresh and rewarding. I look forward to working with him as I head toward retirement and would recommend him to others seeking to create some wealth prior to leaving their work environment.”
Frank Keough, McDermott
