Expat Financial Advice

British expats living abroad often find the standard of financial advice available is very different to the UK, where financial advisors are required to operate under the watchful eye of the UK regulators, the Financial Conduct Authority.

The State of Financial Advice for British Expats

We’ve spoken to hundreds of expats since 2012 who have received poor financial advice normally as a result of unsolicited sales approaches.

As a result, we created our report into The State of Financial Advice for British Expats to highlight the unique financial challenges faced by expats and provide insight into how you can seek trustworthy financial advice.

Read our summary of the report, which includes insight and essential tips for expats, and provides a general overview of the current state of financial advice as experienced by British expats around the world.

Speak to a financial advisor you can trust

If you are seeking financial advice from independent financial advisors we have a range of resources and articles available including a free introduction service which will connect you to one of our trusted partners.
