Global Lifestyle Review

The Knight Frank Global Lifestyle Review has been developed as a guide for individuals considering the lifestyle element of a potential location alongside the recommendations of their wealth management and/or tax advisors.

With our global network now extending to over 330 offices worldwide, Knight Frank is uniquely positioned to use the extensive experience and local area knowledge of our native teams to provide this initial overview. Should a particular location be of specific interest, our teams are on hand to provide more in-depth analysis.

We have avoided making any suggestions regarding the potential taxation benefits of each location as this is not our area of expertise. If more bespoke advice is required we suggest you refer to ‘The Global Opportunities Report’ produced by BDO to sit alongside our report, which provides a summary of tax regimes around the world.

Key Findings

  • Locations across the globe were ranked according to their 'lifestyle appeal'. For the majority of respondents, key contributing lifestyle factors were: education, climate, leisure pursuits and the availability of high quality restaurants.
  • Boasting top three positions in three out of the four categories, Dubai came out as the top location for quality of life.
  • For more information on buying property in Dubai, or for an informal discussion on general lifestyle aspects of living in Dubai please get in touch. We will be delighted to offer guidance on a potential relocation or property investment. Our expert team is also available to coordinate and oversee corporate relocations.
