Expats Favor Switzerland

Switzerland is the best place to live overseas, according to HSBC’s Expat Explorer survey. Expats praised the career opportunities, high-quality education and sporting facilities available in the country. That is a view that INSEAD Swiss Alumni probably already share. Interestingly, Singapore, home to INSEAD’s second campus, is number two. For single Expats, neighbouring Italy is apparently the best for finding love, with the highest percentages reporting finding a partner there, as is the UK. Download Infographic

The Expat Explorer survey was conducted on behalf of HSBC by YouGov, polling 9,300 people living outside their home country about their experience of expatriate life, with questions covering criteria such as pay, quality of life and the local economy.
