Alice Tang is a Partner and Vice President at BPG Wealth Management, a full-service, multi-generational financial planning firm in Oregon. As a top female producer in the financial industry and a sought-after speaker, Alice has formed her business and success by focusing on creating and deepening relationships one connection at a time. Alice realized that relationships are the key to success by watching her father build a business out of his humble beginnings in Hong Kong.
Alice was the first in her family to earn a college degree when she graduated from the University of London, where she met her husband. She emigrated to the US without a network, family, or community and started a career in financial advising.

Life can sometimes be challenging. And no matter how much you might wish things were different, reality perseveres. However, you can still make the best of a bad situation. By accepting what you can’t change, you’ll be able to refocus your energy where it’s needed.
When Alice Tang moved to the US with her husband, adapting to the new environment was difficult. She couldn’t work, didn’t have a safety net, and could feel the tension building at home. Instead of giving up, Alice sought out solutions. Eventually, she changed her visa status, went back to school, and started a new career. Instead of allowing her circumstances to hold her back, she used them to push herself forward.
