THE WAY of Life in Malaysia (EN)

Updated: Jul 8

Every month on WOMENCANFLY.CO’s blog series, The Way, we introduce inspirational women who live abroad.


In this segment, we meet Shizuka Nara, a financial planner living in Malaysia.


Shizuka joined the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ after graduating from university and worked as an advisor for personal asset management, loans and inheritance for about ten and a half years. Even though her job was stressful, she had no major complaints about it and thought she’d work in the same company until she retired. However, after she went on a family trip to Malaysia in 2018, she became fascinated with the country and decided to migrate there with her husband. She currently resides in Kuala Lumpur with him.


We hear about Shizuka’s Malaysian lifestyle, changing jobs to work overseas and overseas working conditions as she continues to work as a financial planner (FP) in Malaysia.
