Synopsis: In this podcast series, The Straits Times and The Business Times offer tips for the newcomer to the financial investment scene.

Mr Anthony Seow - head of unsecured loans and cards for DBS Bank - also explains how DBS' multi-currency account can help you shop online, spend abroad or invest in markets at your preferred rate.
