What are expats in the UAE most concerned about when it comes to their finances and life?

We really wanted to know, so we completed some research on expat life in the UAE and interestingly, found the following:

You see, our motto is to create personal success stories with you at the very heart of them. To do our job, we needed to know what was worrying you.

So we decided to do something about it. We launched a campaign to get in touch with you and find out more about your top of mind financial worries when it comes to expat life in the UAE.

We spoke to existing clients, and prospective ones. Reached out to veteran expats and those of you just starting your expat life adventure in UAE.

And here’s what we found – a full 58% of you were concerned about having to leave your expat life in the UAE suddenly. Maybe due to an unexpected event back home. Or a sudden dip in the local market leading to the loss of a job. If anything, longer-term expats were more anxious about sudden disruption.

You were worried about having the financial health and stability to withstand the unexpected. So we decided to help – just as we’ve personally helped many of you plan and achieve financial resilience.

We have created a financial guide that helps you ensure you are in safe hands and know what to look out for and subsequently avoid! An adviser will think about ways to build resilient shock-proof finances that will see you through disruption. A good adviser will addressed common concerns and set you on track to ask your advisers the hard questions – such as:

  • How can I protect my family if I lose my job?
  • Where’s the best place to keep my savings so I can access them back home?
  • How can I build financial resilience?

If you’re an expat in the UAE concerned about how a sudden departure might impact your finances or family, get in touch.
