Our dream is to help you live yours.

Local experts ready to help in the UK and abroad.

At Prism Xpat, there’s nothing we love more than helping people live their dreams abroad.

Founded in the early 1990s as ‘Prism,’ a London-based general financial advisory firm, we adopted ‘Xpat’ in 2002 to reflect our growing reputation in emigrant and expat matters.

Today, Prism Xpat is a leader in financial advice in the UK, especially for emigrants and expats between the UK and any of Australia, New Zealand, Canada or South Africa. We’ve consulted to government departments as well as major banks and insurance companies, and have been featured as experts on the BBC.

Headquartered in the UK and with affiliates across Australia, New Zealand and other destinations abroad, we specialise in advice ‘at both ends’ of the emigration adventure. Our aim is to make the process as streamlined and stress-free as possible – so you can spend less time worrying about finances, and more time simply enjoying your new life.
