Sun rises in East, retires in West for expats - survey

FRANCE: Asia is fast becoming a top destination for professional people and executives who go abroad for their companies, their careers and their bank accounts: the expatriates. And Europe is largely a place for retirement in the sun, in France and Spain, although Britain and India came top as ideal choices for retirement, a recent survey shows.

An exception in Europe is Germany which draws in young people boosting their careers notably in technology industries, and Britain which ranks highly for culture and entertainment.

These are among the main findings of a vast annual survey of so-called “expats” by HSBC bank, published in October. Finance companies managing personal wealth take a close interest in expats who have high earnings and savings and need advice on investment and tax.

The survey draws a global expat landscape in which the so-called “soft” but critical resource of brainpower and special skills is being drawn increasingly to emerging economies.

The expat sun seems to be rising in the east and retiring in the west.

But expats in general are feeling the chill of the cold winds of economic downturn, particularly in Spain.

Five Asian countries ranked in the top countries for economic attractiveness, and four in the top 12 for the overall experience of being an expat.
