Quite lame to say that you suddenly have passion in investments because your friends, parents, relatives around made investments or do business.

One possible story is to say you did some long term project in your current work that involve working with finance, bankers closely and after you got to understand what they do you realise finance might be the calling.
Best answer I've heard: (1) Singapore is a finance and banking hub, so it makes sense to build a career in this sector. (2) Analytical skills in engineering are transferable to finance. (3) It's fair to say everyone strives for a good living, and finance is the sector that is able to provide just that for capable diligent people.
