Expat Money Newsletter - January 2017

Expat Money: A Healthy 2017

Welcome to the Expat Money Newsletter for January. We are once again focusing on the personal finance issues that matter to you as an expat, or would-be expat.

In this month’s edition we focus on expat healthcare and the need to have medical insurance in place while on overseas assignment.

We also look at the best destinations for a career abroad in 2017 and how those overseas with sterling incomes are feeling the pinch.

I hope you enjoy this newsletter. I welcome your thoughts on other topics you would like us to cover. Or do you have your own tale to tell or question to ask about expat money? Let me know.

Feel free to forward this newsletter to anyone who you think may benefit from reading it. Just click on Forward to a friend or colleague below.

While there is a lot to consider in terms of housing, schooling and work when you head off abroad, the search for a new adventure is a huge draw for expats, with over half saying this was the main reason for deciding to move abroad in the first place.

Greater economic uncertainty has contributed to the pound declining in value against the majority of major currencies in the past year, according to latest research from Lloyds Private Banking.

Best Savings Rates In Expat Banking

Brexit And Expat Pensions

The best current offering for sterling offshore savers is Standard Bank’s 1.4%, if you have £10,000 and can give 196 days’ notice of withdrawals. The only way to beat this rate is to lock your money away for longer. If you can leave at least £10,000 untouched until early 2019 then 1.75% annual interest is on offer from Skipton International.

For dollars, Standard Bank pays 1% for $10,000 or more, with 196 days’ notice. Standard Bank is also best for euros, paying 0.15% for €10,000 or more, with 196 days’ notice.
