Wealth has never been more mobile. And the most mobile sector of the wealthy are retirees – people with high incomes who can live just about anywhere in the world.
A new study from HSBC on wealthy retirees ranked their priorities in picking an overseas residence. It polled people with $250,000 or more in annual income, asking about the drivers behind their ideal retirement location.
Ranking first was “quality of life,” which was chosen by 77 percent. In second place was “weather,” followed by “social life,” then “my family is there” and “cost of living.”
