Sparks Episode 7: Stand by Me

In the 7th episode of Sparks by DBS, an old client of Chester’s – played by Adrian Pang – runs into a serious family medical emergency. This opened an opportunity for Chester to share about this deep bond he has with his client, going back to an untold past of his.

Mr and Mrs Lu were actually Chester’s first clients; taking a chance on him when he was a young banker going from door to door looking for customers. Owners of a bus company, their business grew with Chester’s help on financial advice. Over the years, the Lu’s treated Chester like family and they went through the trials and tribulations together.

Suddenly, a second twist of ill fate in Mrs Lu’s life leaves her in a dilemma about the company. What will happen to the business that she painstakingly built over the years? What solutions will Team DBS offer in the best of her interest?
