Three reasons to seek financial advice when you’re an expat in France Whether you’re already in France or you’re considering a move to France, it’s natural to have worries and fears about your financial future. Research shows that you’re likely to gain peace of mind and to be significantly better off if you get professional advice about your long-term future financial goals and requirements.
