HSBC Survey Results: Pack Your Bag And Head To Singapore, the US or the UAE!

Hello Everyone, If you have not already seen the impressive array of news articles in the expat media in the past few days about the HSBC International Expat Explorer Survey results, released on 24 July, here are some of the highlights:

  • 2,155 expatriates surveyed, over 4 continents;
  • Singapore, US and the UAE were ranked as the best overall expat locations;
  • 74% of expats living in Singapore said their quality of accommodation was better than back home;
  • 58% of expats save and invest more than they did in their country of origin; Hong Kong-based expats (on the whole) have the highest salaries;
  • In terms of longevity, The Netherlands rated the highest, with 82% of expats there already residing there for 3+ years; and
  • The UK and France were among the lowest-rated destinations, scoring poorly on their levels of luxury and standards of accommodation.

However, unlike all of the other sites that we've seen, we can offer you the full PDF summary of the survey results (great for expat research, articles, HR strategy, or just plain curiosity), thanks to our good friends at HSBC Offshore (a valued Expat Women Gold Sponsor). Just Click Here. :-)
