Carol Yip - Founder

A Chinese native of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Carol Yip, Certified Personal Financial Coach, Certified Financial Planner, and Keynote Public Speaker is driven by her passion to share with people the paramount importance of managing your money well to achieve financial freedom.

She holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration (Majoring in Finance with Distinction) from the University of Hull, UK, a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics (Honours) from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, a Certificate of Financial Planning (CFP) from the Financial Planning Association of Malaysia and Certificate of Financial Coaching (CFC) certified by the International Professional Managers’ Association of UK. She is also a Registered Financial Planner (RFP) from the Malaysian Financial Planning Council. Carol is currently pursuing her Masters degree in Counselling, specialising in Financial Counselling.

Carol has over 20 years experience in the financial industry. She previously worked for Price Waterhouse Cooper as auditor and as a management consultant for Arthur Andersen.

While working in the financial field, Carol Yip soon realized that not everyone is born with a natural talent of being able to manage their finances well, and that a large majority of people needed help to learn the necessary skills to achieve their financial goals. As a result, Carol Yip established Abacus Advisory in June 2002. Read what Carol's clients and participants say about her work and contributions.

As part of her work to promote the importance of personal financial literacy, Carol contributes articles, participates in media interviews, gives public talks and conduct programs and public seminars to corporate and education institutions. She is a Monash University Alumni Advisory Group member and a Speaker for TEC Asia Centre and Asia Business Forum.

She has also been appointed to be the panel of assessors for The Malaysia Small Medium Enterprise Award 2007 & 2008.

Carol has been nominated for the “Great Women of Our Time Award Year 2008 – Finance & Commerce category” by the Women Weekly Magazine Malaysia.

Our vision - financial literacy at all levels of society

Carol Yip's vision to educate the public on the necessity to understand their financial behaviour in order to manage their money more effectively was recently reinforced by a statement released by Governor Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz of Bank Negara Malaysia, who announced that the bank will be setting up a credit counselling debt management agency later this year to assist individuals who are encountering difficulties in meeting their financial commitments.

Financial literacy will allow households to have the increased confidence to make sound decisions regarding their consumption expenditure," she said in her keynote address at Bank Negara's gala dinner in conjunction with the Financial Education Summit 2005 in Kuala Lumpur.

Financial literacy is the key to your financial success!

Carol was engaged for the education project driven by the Central Bank of Malaysia’s Credit Counselling and Debt Management Agency ("AKPK")
to educate people about their finances. The personal financial education program covers good behaviour and habits towards money, finance and debt management skills, and how to identify personal financial path, among others. She is also the co-writer of the "Money $ense" book, published by AKPK.

Money $ense

Knowledge is
not money!

Money attitudes influence our behaviour,
and emotional reactions to
our families and
our friends.

Understanding your money style will help you gain insight into how and why you react emotionally to
money, why you have those reactions, and
how they affect your financial success or lack of success.
