The most expensive city in the world for expats named

Moving abroad can be extremely expensive but there are a few cities that are particularly hard for expats to afford.

According to new research from ECA International, the world’s most expensive city is New York.

However, even Britons staying at home could struggle to afford their lifestyle, as London ranked fourth on the list.

Steven Kilfedder, Head of Production at ECA International, said: “The cost of living crisis in the UK persists, with rising costs driven primarily by food, utilities, and housing prices.

“Despite these challenges, all UK cities bar London have experienced a decline in the global ranking. This can largely be attributed to the weakness of the pound, which has made the country cheaper for people coming to the UK from other countries.”
