We've always enjoyed compiling our seasonal listing of personal finance events, mainly because we know the value of in-person interactions for your learning and self-development.

But during this “Circuit Breaker” period and social distancing for that forseeable future, event organisers have moved their seminars online, allowing attendees to still gain a lot of the benefits of in-person events from the comfort of their very own homes.

Here are our picks for upcoming free webinars that cover topics like CPF, investing, trading, insurance and personal finance. Be sure to save the dates!
