EXPATS May Find Themselves Worst Off . . .

The article draws on the experiences of expats in various countries: http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/201710 … -worse-off

Do the following statements sound familiar?

"Not all expats find they can afford to live the high-life. InterNations, a networking resource for expats, recently surveyed more than 12,500 people living in 188 countries or territories and the picture the data paint of their finances is remarkably diverse."

"While professionals who move to Vietnam, Mexico and Colombia – all countries with relatively low costs of living – find their purchasing power increases substantially, expats in other locations – including Italy, Israel and Greece – said they’re often unable to meet basic expenses due to the high cost of living."

"The differences in the way expats’ finances stack up, can, in part, be explained by analysing their motivations for relocating. The most popular reasons given for relocating to a new country were either to fulfil a sense of adventure, or for quality-of-life related to health or climate. So, many weren’t in it for the money in the first place: only 15% said they were primarily motivated by financial incentives."
