The article, British Expats Embrace New Tech Platforms for Managing Finance, published 23rd September in international-adviser.com, details the results of a study of 1 800 former UK residents living across more than 12 territories. It revealed that 75% of respondents use social media and digital apps for practical purposes such as currency conversions, with the majority (89%) claiming the technology has significantly improved their quality of life. A further 69% said apps and digital tools made their life easier to organise and manage and it was found that expats living in the US are the most tech savvy.
It was also revealed that 4 out of 5 expats belong to at least two social networks.
