Expat Focus Guide to Personal Finance - our FREE e-book

Expat Focus Guide to Personal Finance
Our free guide to expat financial matters
Becoming an expat, especially for the first time, can be a daunting experience with a myriad of different things to think about in addition to one’s financial situation. To make matters worse, the expat financial services industry has a reputation for hard selling and sharp practice – a reputation which in some cases is fully justified.

The Expat Focus Guide to Personal Finance is a free e-book (PDF) which covers the following subject areas:

1 Cost of Living
2 Credit and Debt
3 Currency Transfers
4 Expat Banking
5 Buying Property
6 Taxation
7 Pensions
8 Health Insurance
9 Education
10 Wills & Inheritance

This guide won’t give you all the answers or tell you exactly what to do - everyone’s situation is different and needs to be considered on its own merits - but it will give you a good idea of the sort of things you should be thinking about and the questions to ask. We hope you find it useful!

To get your copy of the guide, just sign up for an Expat Focus account using the button below.
