Key Unicorn Contributors
Unicorn harnesses the expertise and experience of its key contributors in committees that oversee and drive various aspects of our business. We use committees so that the talents of the individuals involved are optimised by stimulating others and at the same time being refined by others. At least one director of the company participates in each of these committees.
1. The Executive Committee (‘ExCo’)
Exco is composed of the company’s three directors. It sets the overall strategy and initiates improvements in the company’s offerings, service standards and efficiency. It tackles challenges and difficulties faced by consultants and the support provided by the company. It monitors client satisfaction and any complaints received. Each member of ExCo has a specific area of responsibility but the committee operates as the company’s top decision-making body.
|Patrick Tan||Chairman||Vision, Strategy, Inspiration, Mentoring|
|Robin Tan||Managing Director||Governance, Infrastructure, Training, Coaching, Outreach|
|Chua Hui Xin||Executive Director||Financial Planning, Recruitment|
2. The Investing Committee (‘InvesCo’)
Investment advice and management are the core offerings of the company. Compiling and monitoring portfolios that meet clients’ needs requires diligent and consistent research, intelligent analysis and ongoing assessment. In addition to the company’s three directors, InvesCo takes valuable contributions from consultants and researchers whose passion is the world of investment.

3. The Insurance Selection Committee (‘InSeCo’)
Protection against events that damage or end a person’s ability to generate wealth and care for those dependent upon them (death or ill health) is a key element of every financial plan. Many insurers compete to meet these needs with an ever-changing and large range of products that can be bewildering to the man in the street. InSeCo is a made up of a group of experienced practitioners committed to keeping abreast of what’s on offer and providing well-researched guidance to Unicorn’s consultant as to which products best meet which needs and what profile of client.
