HSBC Expat Explorer survey launches PDF Print E-mail
News - Latest

HSBC Expat has announced the official launch of its annual Expat Explorer Survey.


With a brand new look and feel for 2012, the Expat Explorer survey promises to be bigger and better to mark the 5th year of the largest global survey for expats.

2011 saw nearly 3,400 expats participate from over 100 countries across the globe to have their say about their experiences working and living overseas. This year, HSBC Expat is calling for expats everywhere to take part in the survey to ensure that their current country of residence features in the league tables published on the interactive online tool.

“The survey has grown from strength to strength. This is the 5th year we’ve run Expat Explorer and we wanted to celebrate this important milestone with a revitalised look to keep it fresh and engaging for expats when they visit the survey,” said Dean Blackburn, head of HSBC Expat.

“We’ve listened to feedback from the community and we are committed to ensuring that the findings are topical and relevant. 2012 should be an interesting year and we want its story to be told by expats across the globe.

“This year, we’ll be focusing on new, emerging and important issues which matter and asking expats how they’ve fared after the global economic turmoil and social unrest faced in some countries.

“On the more practical side, we’ll be asking for hints and tips on what life is like on the ground to provide the most comprehensive picture, and help the Expat Explorer survey continue to be a valued resource for the expat community.”

The 2012 survey will track trends and discover how expats’ lifestyles, economic outlook and experience of raising a family abroad have changed following their move to a new country. Last year’s survey revealed that expat wealth remained widely immune to global economic troubles, even in countries which have experienced significant turbulence in 2010. Expat finances in countries such as Egypt, Bahrain and Japan were resilient to the wider turmoil.

Other key findings from the 2011 research included:

•    Expats in the Middle East were the most likely to head home as a result of economic conditions

 
•    UK performed well economically against EU counterparts


•    Thailand offered great quality of life for expats, scoring top in the 2011 Expat Experience league table


•    Singapore offered the best of both worlds for career prospects and quality of life


•    France led the way as the best country for raising children abroad


If you’re an expat and want to find out how your country performs, how your fellow expats are coping or even where your next trip might take you, make sure your voice is heard so get involved today.

Check out the new look survey and share your experience of life abroad by filling in the Expat Explorer 2012 survey here.
