Participate in the 2010 HSBC Expat Explorer Survey

from the HSBC website

The HSBC Expat Explorer Survey takes the pulse every year of expats around the globe to give insight into trends, wealth level, best places to raise children, and general quality of life in dozens of countries. You can find the 2009 report here.

You can fill out this year’s survey here. According to HSBC, it takes 10-15 minutes to fill out and is totally anonymous. The message below courtesy of Expatica.

This is the third time HSBC Bank International is conducting the survey.

In 2009, over 3,100 expats from more than 50 countries across the globe participated in the survey. The 2009 survey also found that a large percentage of expats had been strongly affected by the global downturn, with a higher number in the UK and US admitting that they were considering a move back to their home country.

Other key findings from the 2009 research included:

• Despite the economic crisis, expats were wealthier and saved more than in their country of origin
• Emerging markets ranked above established centres for expat finances
• Canada, Australia and Thailand were the top three locations for expat lifestyle, with established markets in general outperforming emerging markets
• Australia ranked number one for raising children, followed by Singapore and Hong Kong

Help spread the word
“Expats from a huge range of countries took part in the survey last year but we couldn’t feature some locations because there weren’t enough respondents to meet our statistical criteria,” said Lisa Wood, Head of Marketing and Communications at HSBC Bank International.

“We would love to have them involved in 2010 and that’s why we are asking expats from all over the globe to not only fill out the survey themselves, but to also pass it around to any expat friends, family and colleagues in order to make sure that their country doesn’t miss out again.”

The 2010 survey will continue to take an in-depth look at expat life, examining how this unique group experiences new cultures, new lifestyles and, importantly, how they have been dealing with a new financial landscape as the world continues to recover from the global economic crisis.
