The number of people leaving the UK for New Zealand has more than doubled in the last five years. According to Moneycorp foreign currency specialists a quarter of all skilled migrants moving to NZ are now from the UK. The main reason given for moving there is quality of life. Auckland and Wellington rank 5th and 12th in Mercer’s Quality of Living Survey, while London languishes at 39th
 
 
The results of Moneycorp's first Foreign Focus Index show that the trend towards buying abroad shows no sign of abating. According to the Office of National Statistics 250,000 Brits now own a property abroad - and the real figure could be even higher.
 
 
Nicholas Marr CEO of overseas property portal Homesgofast.com ‘When moving abroad it is important that your money is secure and that your money transfers are not costing you the earth in bank charges and with poor exchange rates.  Choosing a specialist currency broker such as Moneycorp will provide specialist currency advice and will make money transfers stress free. Best of all they can save you money against your high street bank’
 
 
To cater for the growing emigration market the forthcoming ‘A place in the Sun Exhibition’ sponsored by Moneycorp will for the first time feature ‘The Emigration Show’. The new featured emigration shows are being  run in partnership with the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office’s ‘Know Before You Go’ campaign, they provide those considering moving abroad with essential information and advice before leaving home. Popular destinations will be represented including America, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa alongside representatives from Europe and beyond
 
 
A place in the Sun Live will takes place twice-yearly in the UK at ExCeL London (30th March-1st April 2007) and NEC Birmingham (28th-30th September 2007), they each deliver up to 21,000 ABC-certified visitors seeking a dream home abroad. The overseas property shows are billed at the UK’s biggest and best-attended overseas property shows.
