Expat Money Newsletter - July 2018

Welcome to the Expat Money Newsletter for July.

Expats face specific risk when living abroad. Many domestic policies have restrictions about the time you spend abroad that can invalidate the policies for expats. There are also issues such as leaving a home vacant at home and terrorism and kidnap risks that can be an issue if you live in some parts of the world.

According to an analysis conducted by financial advisory consultancy, Hoxton Capital Management, the average pension pot of over-65 Britons living abroad has reached £210,000.

Based on the amount of British citizens aged 65 and over living in EU countries having reached 247,000 (ONS, 2017) – this 20% could represent a total of £10bn being wiped from British pension pots.
