Expat Money: Pensions For Expats

Welcome to the Expat Money Newsletter for October. 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 pensions for expats, especially in light of the UK’s decision to leave the EU.

We also examine the best savings rates available in offshore banking, and introduce a new expat healthcare information service.

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.
