Life expectancy figures show that most people today can look forward to significantly longer lives than in any previous generation. This is due to many factors, not least of which include advanced medical care, greater health awareness and improved nutrition. Whilst living longer is undoubtedly good news, it does present challenges when it comes to […]
Today we are going to take a look at the impact taxes have on retirement savings. Let’s jump straight in by examining some numbers: Compound interest, given time, creates significant growth. If you invest $10,000 at 5%, it will grow to $16,289 after 10 years and $20,789 after 15 years. Jump 25 years after the […]
Inflation is the investor’s enemy and expats in Asia looking to save and invest need to be aware of the role inflation can have on their financial health. The US has seen inflation averaging around 3.4% since the early 1900s. At first glance, 3.4% seems low and entirely manageable in the context of savings and […]
Financial planning is one of those tasks that most of us can find an excuse to avoid. Financial planning is, quite frankly, something of a chore and is often not given much in the way of priority. As with any job that is not much fun, it is essential to keep the goals in mind. […]
This is the second post in our two articles on how debt can affect your financial planning. Yesterday we focused on the dangers of bad debt and how it could derail your financial planning for the future. Today we look at why not all debt is a bad thing and how some forms of borrowing […]
Property investors are looking to London for recession proof investments. Wealthy Europeans are making moves out the failing Eurozone’s crisis hit economies and into the bricks and mortar of the UK’s capital. Asian investors are also taking note of the opportunities of London property investment with significant purchases being seen in both the residential and […]
Asia’s climate, living standards, cost of living and lifestyle all provide an attractive retirement proposition for many expats. It is possible to retire with a much higher standard of living than would be possible in many western countries. Whether moving to settle and retire in Asia or retiring from a working life in Asia, there […]
Property as an investment can be an important component of a well-balanced portfolio. One of the impacts in Europe of the financial crisis has been a significant reduction in property prices. With lower mortgage costs and fewer local nationals entering the marketplace, this could represent an opportunity for expats in Asia to make European property […]

Expats moving to Shanghai for the first time may find it a bewildering place; especially with no previous experience of Asia. No matter how busy your home city, it cannot compete with the sheer bustle, crush and pace of life in a Chinese metropolis. Finding a financial adviser in Shanghai can be equally fraught, with […]
How much risk are you willing to take with your savings? A very difficult question for most of us to answer, but one that needs to be carefully addressed when planning an investment portfolio. Cash savings such as bank deposit accounts and bonds offer low to no risk. They tend to be for shorter terms […]
HOW OFTEN do you see the headline ‘billions wiped on shares’? OK, I know, you don’t really see it at all do you, and that is because good news is so much less dramatic than bad news, so you are far more likely to see the ‘billions wiped off shares’ headline. But think about it, […]
INVESTORS who like to take an opposing view to the rest of the market can make significant profits, but it does take nerves of steel to take a contrarian position and stick with it. To do this successfully, you need to understand a little more about how this works, so here we explain the basics. So what is contrarian investing? Contrarian investing is […]
WE ALL have different reasons for investing, some of us are trying to save to put children through school or university, others are building a lump sum for the future which might be used to pay off a mortgage or fund a dream purchase. However, for many investing is a way to create an income, […]
INFLATION is a silent thief – you will not necessarily notice how much it erodes your savings over time, because their physical ‘value’ does not change, but what you can buy with those savings is being cut, unless you do something about it. The rate of inflation is detailed by countries based most often on […]
INVESTING can be a curious business at times, one minute you can be on top of the world and making money without lifting a finger, the next you can be in a real slump and wondering why you bother with it at all. For most of us, the majority of time we have investments is […]
WITH THE imperfect political solution arrived at in the US over the contentious debt ceiling averting the threat of default and the resultant turmoil, it has recently been the turn of the Europeans to provide all the drama in the ongoing soap opera that we call the financial markets. For reasons that are largely irrelevant […]
HAVING an adviser to keep a check on your portfolio is ideal – you have someone who will keep track of what is happening, make decisions on your behalf, if that is what you agree, or explain to you why you should make the decision he or she is recommending. The one thing that it […]
Ethical investing used to be a very niche area of investment that was reserved for the brave few who would rather their money ‘did good’ than ‘did well’. But things are starting to change as the sector becomes more mainstream, and the performance of ethical funds is now competing with more traditional, non-ethical sectors. Alison Steed looks […]
The joy that children can bring us is immense – I should know, I have recently had my first child. So I can appreciate the fact that many parents will not want to think about how much their child or children are going to cost them to bring up. But when you do, my goodness […]
