Whatever your age, whether retirement is round the corner or decades away, you really should be asking yourself this question. You don’t have to search very far on the internet to ascertain that a pensions’ timebomb is ticking in almost all of the world’s developed economies. Economists are predicting a crisis in the US, Canada […]
Malaysia is an attractive destination for expats who settle here not only to take advantage of career opportunities but also to enjoy the diversity the country has to offer in terms of culture, people and religion and the fabulous opportunities for travel throughout the Far East and beyond. You might want to consider consulting an […]
As we get older, start families and take on financial obligations, life insurance becomes increasingly important, perhaps even more so for expats. Here are five questions to ask yourself to work out just what level and type of cover you need. 1. Is life insurance necessary for me? If you have enough wealth to provide […]
The plight of a British citizen visiting Thailand over New Year highlights the importance of having medical cover whether you are travelling abroad on holiday or living away from home for an extended period of time. The problem with both travel and medical insurance is that it can seem a waste of money until you […]
When the new UK pension freedoms were announced last year, Pensions Minister Steve Webb famously quipped that people were free to blow their retirement savings on a Lamborghini if they so desired and the government leapt to defend his comments. Pension freedoms became a reality for over 55s on 6th April this year and while […]
While death is about the only absolute certainly we have in life, one of the things most of us don’t expect is to be checking out early. Yet unfortunately, many people do. The importance of having your affairs in order even if you don’t anticipate shuffling off for decades to come has been rammed home […]
The financial crisis of 2008 has a lot of bad things to answer for but here’s one positive outcome. According to a study recently released by Scottish Widows, the UK is turning into a nation of savers. Apparently three quarters of Brits are now saving on a regular basis, over a third of them claiming […]
There are a great many enjoyable aspects to being a financial adviser. Building a rapport with clients, helping them to set goals and, even better, to achieve them is what keeps many of our advisers here at Infinity motivated and happy in their work. However, as with any job, there are also some challenges. In […]
Expat health insurance in Vietnam is absolutely vital if you are living in the country full time. Public hospitals may be inexpensive but the standard of care will almost certainly not be on a par with what you will find in Europe or the US. They suffer from a lack of funding and equipment and, […]
It has to be said that the financial industry has not always had the most spotless of reputations and you don’t need to go far to hear a beef from someone who has been mis-sold a life insurance product. Any attempt to sell a financial product or service by misrepresenting that product or by misleading […]
If you have a family, life insurance is a no brainer to ensure that your family are left financially secure should you pass away. However, for singletons, the issue is less clear cut. Although many financial websites suggest that single people with no children do not need life insurance, this is not necessarily the case. […]
If you are investing for your retirement, you are apparently in the minority and can give yourself a big pat on the back. However, one huge risk that retiree investors face is running out of money. If you spend all your working life accumulating enough wealth to have a comfortable retirement, it would be a […]
Many people – wisely – take out life insurance as part of a comprehensive financial plan, in fact, in some cases, it is a condition of taking out a loan such as a mortgage. However, far fewer consider their need for critical illness cover, even though evidence suggests that they are far more likely to […]
Not a terribly cheery subject this one but something that all expats really should consider and make provision for to save additional stress for your loved ones down the line if a terrible event should occur. Unfortunately death does not take your location or finances into account when it strikes. According to the UK Foreign […]
We are all familiar with Aesop’s fable of the tortoise and the hare, in which the plodding tortoise challenges the bragging hare to a race and is mercilessly ridiculed until the over-confident hare takes a nap mid-race only to wake up and find that the tortoise has beaten him across the finish line. The moral […]
As a British citizen living abroad, I had assumed that should my children, who are British citizens even though they were born outside the UK, choose to attend a UK university, that they would pay the same fees as their cousins who were born in the UK and have always lived there. A little research […]
Earlier this month the UK government announced a crackdown on so-called ‘health tourists’. While new measures are aimed at making savings of £500mn by preventing visitors from accessing free NHS care, they will also affect British nationals living abroad. This runs contrary to indications from the Department of Health last year that UK expats would […]
There is no denying the fact that a university education in the UK is costly. Tuition fees have been steadily rising since they were first introduced in 1998, reaching £9,000 a year under the current coalition government after the last hike in 2012 which controversially broke a key Lib Dem manifesto promise. Tuition fees don’t […]
Polling day in the UK is almost here and it is the tightest election in decades. The manifestoes have been published, the party leaders have slogged it out on national TV and are now resorting to last minute promises to woo voters who are as yet undecided. But it is anyone’s guess as to how […]
