Expat financial services could help arrest income decline

However, expats in other destinations would also be likely to benefit from solid expat financial services; the study reports that pensioners in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and North America are also facing difficult financial questions coupled at a time when they are coming to terms with declining income. In fact, only pensioners in South Africa and Jamaica have actually seen their income rise over the past decade.

The study was carried out by Equiniti Group which oversees the payment of more than 60,000 pensions.

As has always been the case, good timely advice has the potential to make a real difference.

Many properties could soon be unaffordable, but are still currently within tantalising reach for those who have the means.

Experts are warning that this period of opportunity cannot continue forever, as it is expected that the Spanish economy will soon rebound from a recent period of trouble with what is anticipated to be a marked and prolonged period of prosperity.
