Our guest today is Millie Chan. Millie is a lawyer with over 30 years of experience working in Malaysia and Vancouver. She is the founder of Legacy 127 Consulting, a senior consultant with the Canadian national law firm BLG, and a consultant with the Malaysian law firm Shearn Delamore & Co.

In our conversation with Millie, we discuss her work with helping ultra-high net worth families in Asia with inter-generational wealth transfer and her holistic approach to wealth, which includes intangible assets such as family identity, vision, values, and traditions. Millie also shares how as a newer Christian, she felt it would be a higher calling to leave her work as a lawyer and join full-time ministry, and what changed in her to allow her to see her legal work as doing God’s work.

Highlights from the podcast:

  • The work that Millie does serving high net worth families

  • Millie’s story of being antagonistic towards God and God pursuing her

  • The misconceptions that Millie felt about calling, feeling like she had to muster up courage to leave the marketplace to do church or ministry work

  • Why Millie feels privileged to work alongside patriarchs and matriarchs

  • How Millie’s holistic approach goes beyond the practical work of asset management, and goes deeper to the work of mending relationships between family members and facilitating important conversations
