About Presenter

Linda Yao

Marketing Director, World Financial Group

Linda Yao was born in Taiwan, Taipei into a family of five who lived in a one-bedroom University of Taiwan duplex with no amenities. She recalls sleeping with her grandmother and sister in a curtained-off area in the living room, while her parents and brother slept in the bedroom. The toilet was just a hole in the floor, and it was next to the kitchen. They bathed in a lean-to her dad built against the nearby banana fermentation warehouse.  

While her story started similar to many in her age group from Taiwan, Linda attributes much of her financial success to the decision to buy a few helpful wealth-building products that forced her to save monthly amounts of cash she wasn’t able to withdraw easily. 

It wasn’t always like that: Linda didn’t become interested in managing her money until she was in her 40s. Yet, she was able to reach financial independence, enjoy a very comfortable retirement, and very passionate about helping parents and grandparents to gain the confidence to manage their money, save, and pay less tax. 

She is focused on helping them in building wealth for future generations to leave a sizable

legacy effortlessly by following a few simple steps.
