Retiring abroad

British people who are set for retirement are looking and new ways to move abroad rather than into an expat community.

A study conducted by NatWest International Personal Banking discovered that while an international move is still a popular choice with retirees, many are wishing to move directly into the community as opposed to a community where there are already international movers established there.

92 per cent of retirees currently living abroad do not live in an established expatraite community, while over half (56 per cent) of those that live abroad live in an expatraite community and didn’t consider it as a major factor when choosing a home to set up.

which could benefit investors with property overseas.

David Isley, Head of NatWest International Personal Banking, said, “Looking at retirees who decide to move abroad, it is enlightening that 92 per cent of expats chose not to retire to a designated expat community. This seems to emphasise the notion that expats have retained a sense of adventure, they really do want to start afresh and experience life as a local rather than settle with other expats.”

The research found that Spain, France, Australia and Us are the firm favourite destinations to move abroad.
