FDS Research has begun offering its employees free health checks in Singapore as recent findings show that Singaporean’s suffer 20% more heart problems than their Western counterparts and at a much younger age.
Richard Chamberlain, Senior Portfolio Adviser at FDS Research said, “The findings show that Singaporeans face heart failure 10 years before their American and European brethren, with those surveyed suffering heart failure at an average age of 61. Singaporeans also have a higher prevalence of coronary artery disease, hypertension and diabetes – the three most common causes of heart failure – compared to their global counterparts.
“That is why at FDS Research we are offering free health checks for all of our employees, no matter their age. Non-Singaporeans get no subsidies from the government for healthcare, even if they are employed and paying taxes. We as a socially responsible firm want to ensure our team has the best healthcare in place to protect themselves and their families from any illness they may encounter in the future. The free healthcare program will be available to all current and future FDS team members and will begin in July 2016.”
The program will offer FDS Research employees an initial consultation, bespoke health plan based on each employees requirements, age, health status and objectives, as well as subsidised health care for their families in Singapore.
FDS Research is an independent equities research and asset management firm based in Singapore who advise their global client base of Institutional and Private Investors on various wealth management solutions.
