November summary

At the end of the calendar month, I thought I would reflect on the main issues and topics on ‘Financial Pages in Spain’ during October

  • Pensions, including QROPS

  • Mortgages

  • Tax issues

These are the issues that contributed the most feedback. I’m always pleased to receive emails either to seek further advice or to comment on my articles.

Using the statistics provided by my service contractor, I can also indicate the most popular posts in terms of the number of people who visited the pages. They were, in order;

  1. Special Pensions Week

  1. Pensions – explaining terms, expressions and jargon

  1. Mortgages – explaining terms, expressions and jargon

I was particularly pleased with the article which was viewed by the most readers during Special Pensions Week. QROPS receives a huge amount of coverage in the press but here the most popular article was ‘QNUPS – Qualifying Non-UK Pension Schemeshttp://expatsfrombritain.blogspot.com/2010/11/qnups-qualifying-non-uk-pension-schemes.html

If you need advice please email me for connection to an authorised and regulated adviser.

The blog is also being read far and wide. So far, according to my statistics, it has been read in 34 countries. Not surprisingly, the furthest away being New Zealand.

The top three in order;

  • Spain
  • United Kingdom
  • USA

I’ve also picked up a regular reader in Malta who is very welcome.

It is great to be able to give you the feedback and readership popularity but I thought I’d also tell you what I enjoyed most of all.

Most of my writing comes from personal experience as an adviser, from my first hand knowledge in Spain and lots of reading to keep up to date with trends and changes. This month I was able to write about a completely new product – Pension Reciprocation Plan (PRP). This appeared on my Website

The PRP appears on;
