Sweden Voted Top Destination for Women Expats

However, money is not the only consideration for expats. Switzerland may have topped the expat income charts, but ‘economics’, ‘experience’ and ‘family life’ were factored into the equation it was placed behind Singapore, New Zealand, Germany, Canada, Australia, Bahrain and Sweden.

Sweden’s appearance on the list is no surprise. For expats in Sweden, wealth management options are just one of the country’s many draws; it is also one of the leading places in the world for gender equality and came in at first place in terms of the opportunities for family life.

The study revealed that, globally, women still face more professional and wealth management challenges than men. Although becoming an expat increases a woman’s income by nearly 30 per cent, the income of expat women was still lower than their male counterparts by around USD42,000. However, in Sweden, this expat wealth management gender disparity was not so marked.

GraphThe latest Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) survey describes widespread growth across the UK economy, with notable upturns in the services and manufacturing sectors.

The PMI records and aggregates the strength of various sectors of the economy and is often used to predict likely changes to interest rates. The fact that data for January indicated the most significant growth in 16 months, led many pundits to speculate on the unlikelihood of an interest rate cut by the Bank of England. And they were right.

The picture of growth was supported by numerous data channels. For example, figures from Rightmove revealed a 2.3 per cent month-on-month upturn on UK house prices in January, the largest ever recorded for the month, and this assisted the annual house price rise figure to 2.7%, the largest increase since 2017.*

Food for expat thought: Takeaway anyone?

Fish and ChipsWhat do you miss most as an expat?

Of course, there will be no shortage of new experiences available to you in your expat environment, especially if you are moving overseas to retire, but sometimes, it’s the smallest things that might bring a lump to your throat…or a rumble to your stomach, maybe.

Perhaps this was the case for one group of British expats who chartered a plane to fly in a large delivery from their favourite curry house in Portsmouth.

James Emery, an aviation assessor for trainee pilots in France, piloted the small aircraft which flew 89 meals from Solent Airport all the way to Bordeaux.

“I’m a chilli addict, “he said, “and an aviation geek, so I thought I would combine my two hobbies to get my favourite meal to me in France.”
