Jonathan Quek began his career in the financial industry in Singapore with HSBC Insurance and IPP Financial Advisers, where his 4 years of experience exposed him to the far horizon of financial investment. Incidentally, the 2008 financial crisis exposed the vulnerability of the global financial system, prompting him into intense researching only to arrive to his discovery of the true intrinsic values of precious metals amid the economic bust-cycle.
Following that, Jonathan left the financial industry in Singapore in 2010 to embark on a new journey of entrepreneurship in Malaysia. Since then, the inception of the online portal SilverMalaysia.com has served the objective of helping ordinary investors to fight against hyperinflation and survive in economic crisis.

Why Now?" which has been translated into 3 languages. Subsequently, he wrote "Keep Investment Simple & Stupid" Series entitled "How to Invest like an Idiot & Trade like a Pro" which he co-authored with Benny Lee in 2014 and "5 Elements of Successful Investors" which he co-authored with Xeo Lye on the same year.
