Fact or Fiction

By Amanda Johnson
This article is published on: 5th November 2013

There are so many differing thoughts and views on Expat forums and websites, how do I know what is fact and what is opinion?

Living permanently in France, one thing I notice is the vast amount of information available for expats. Whether on the internet via websites and discussion forums, or as printed media, such as The Vendee Magazine, there is always information and opinion for any specific queries you may have.

The hardest task I find is sifting through the raft of varied opinions and recommendations, to get to the facts which will help me choose the path which is right for me. If I want an electrician or heating engineer to look after my house, I will look for someone whose business is registered to provide the service I want and has a proven track record in this industry.  I am sure most of you would do the same?

Managing your finances is another key area where you want to be sure the information you receive is accurate, up to date and provides you with the professional peace of mind you need to protect your assets. The Spectrum IFA Group’s French company, TSG Insurance Services S.A.R.L. is regulated in France by ANACOFI-CIF and ORIAS (see our website for details of these organisations) to provide financial advice.
