The results are in from this year’s HSBC Expat Explorer survey and we are thrilled that Guernsey has powered into the top 5 places to live and work in 2021.

The survey is managed by HSBC Expat, which is headquartered in the Channel Islands, and is completed by thousands of people living and working abroad to share their experiences of what expat life is like.

This year’s survey results showed that globally almost two thirds (65%) of people living abroad feel optimistic about the year ahead despite a significant year of change.

The report also highlighted that two thirds of expats report a better quality of life since relocating. We feel our position in the survey is a true testament to the fantastic quality of life we enjoy in Guernsey. In particular, we know from discussions with families that have recently relocated to the Island that they really value their newfound work/life balance, minimal commute times and a true feeling of safety and security.

Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand and The UAE, also placed in the top 5 this year, which are some pretty big names to stand beside, and we are immensely proud of our Island for offering such a warm and welcoming home from home.
