HOW DOES YOUR COUNTRY COMPARE? HSBC RELEASES EXPAT EXPLORER SURVEY RESULTS

     

Living abroad can be one of the most rewarding and exciting experiences of someone’s life. Whether advancing a career or following family, moving to a new country is an invaluable opportunity to step outside of one’s comfort zone, gain perspective on a different culture and experience a whole new way of living!

This week, HSBC published their 2014 Expat Explorer Survey results from over 9,000 expats living across the world. Offering a unique look into what it means to be an expat abroad, participants compared cities on their quality of life, financial security and ability to raise a family. This year, Switzerland, Singapore and China were named the best locations for expats. See below for an interesting infographic from HSBC on the results.
