Just Landed and Lloyds TSB International have teamed up to offer a new expat banking poll.

Do you trust the banks in the country you’re living in? Or do you feel safer dealing with banks from home?

Whatever your opinion, we want to know what you think about managing money abroad. In fact, we’re so keen to hear what you’ve got to say, we’ve teamed up with Lloyds TSB International to offer you the chance to win an iPad!

Just answer two simple questions and tell us your story to be entered into the prize draw. What are you waiting for?

Update: This poll is now closed. Thank you for your participation.

Jadav says:

If i have 10 million. I would put it in my home banks as i feel safe at home. May be some part of it i will deposit in the country where i live in for my expenses or maybe i will invest in property at home rather in a foriegn country.

aysha says:

money for charity and some for me

Lissa says:

Hats off to wheeovr wrote this up and posted it.

arch.memory says:

Oh, goodness, I frankly never thought about it (which is probably why I’ll never have a million euros).. I know I wouldn’t stash it away, but use it to “fulfill my dreams” (as soon as I figure out what they are!). Still, till then, I guess I’ll need to put it somewhere, and I’m not sure how much I trust (or like) “traditional” banks/investment companies these days.. (Would I give my money to the devil if it promised me a good return? Perhaps. But can I trust the devil to keep its promise? And would I have anyone but myself to blame if it doesn’t?)

DAB says:

I WOULD INVEST IT HALF IN A RELIABLE BANK AND THE REST I WOULD CREATE A SMALL
SELF SUPPORT COMMUNITY

1 million … i guess i would spread it in different banks making sure that each account amount will be covered(guaranteed) by the government of the respective country.
Another option is to buy property in Malta,Europe,which is the small Island in the Med-Sea,where property prices have kept their values.
Best option is to invest in a Business,buy a good property and run it or just rent it.

nyarai says:

in the bank

yhenew says:

I will invest it in needy people.

Mamun says:

If the option is only saving:

I will split the money 200K each and go for 5 different banks to open saving accounts. There will be at least 2 Asian (Indian, Bangladeshi, Hong Kong, Singapore etc) banks with worldwide presence for high interest rate (some of them offers up to 13%)

If the option includes investment too:

I will buy 2 properties for 500K and rent out for regular monthly income, which will be deposited to 2 different saving accounts.

Will buy one property for myself for 200K to live peacefully.

Will invest 250K on 3/4 technology start-up companies as an angel investor.

2) It would secure my investment and retirement.

shahnawaz says:

i will save it in my favorate bank

If I had a million Euro I’d definitely go into the property market. These are win win investments. The only thing U need to know is where the prime property market is, log onto to the property and watch your money grow.

Alan says:

If I had €1million, realistically, this is most likely what I’d do with it:

1) Clear all outstanding loans

2) Start an education fund for my future kids

3) Put a percentage of it in a Fixed Deposit account, potentially somewhere in an offshore account (cash is still King)

4) Purchase a home in Malaysia (that’s where I’m from), preferably freehold landed property – the property market in Asia seems to be pretty stable at the moment

5) Purchase a commercial real estate to generate monthly income – this would most likely be a shoplot or office unit

6) And whatever that’s left will be invested in commodoties such as Gold or in OIl & Gas – this would be a good hedge against inflation

Teena says:

Its a great idea to invest the money. I would definitely be splurge initially.. some extra shopping etc.. but I will deposit the rest of the million into an savings accounts. I trust the banks at my Home and this Country. the difference in the value of money do come as an advantage to me. And for sure some money is going for my Kid’s College Fund! Abroad education is really really expensive these days despite the recession! Once again, I can only Wish!

Allen says:

Caroline says:

I would deposit it in my saving account.

Muntazim khalif says:

if i have one million i would have save it in my saving account.

Lucy says:

I would definitely not put it in ICBC, that’s for sure! We thought China’s banks were all connected, and when my husband’s bank card got stolen after we moved cities, we thought we could show our ID to get the money out. How wrong we were! We had to travel back by plane in a different city to the bank where we first set up our account a year ago to retrieve it!

Lesson of the day: always put your money in a well connected, well trusted bank. That’s where my winnings would go!

Francisco Rada says:

if i had a chance to have 1 million i will put 50% on the bank i trusted..and the 50% will put on investment like farm lot or residential lot

Helene says:

Being a solar cell scientist, I would say invest it in solar power. With the garanteed feedin tariffs and grants you can make better returns that via high interest accounts and it is much more secure than trying to manage a property portfolio or stock options!

Angie says:

property! somewhere in the Turkish riviera!

Anna says:

Investment fund will be good idea to save this big amount.

Elbis shuhaimi hj zakaria says:

I would probably split it in 5 and put it in different banks. (And I would keep a considerable amount of cash, just in case.)

Karina says:

Swiss bank UBS.

Matej says:

I would invest it in gold or some property abroad. But the idea of ​​journey around the world is also possible 🙂

Mick Rimmer says:

I would use it as deposit on a full block of flats, and take out mortgages to cover the balance. then rent them out, to achieve a yield of between 15% and 20% per year. I would then re invest that profit into more distressed properties.

David Bolick says:

I would invest it in worthwhile, trusted charitable projects.

Winston says:

“Where would you save it?”. Honestly, with all systems failing, it may be best to save it at home where you can see it. But then again what if the currency got devalued or scrapped. Being bit of a gambler, I would invest in FOREX. If I decided to play safe, I would invest in Gold. Gold has never tarnished nor lost its value.

Herbert says:

I will save the money in an International Bank considering the fact that they have less risks as compared to local banks and also the terms of operations are better than that of local banks.I will open a fixed account and a savings account since part of it I will need oftenly and part of it will be for any future expenses after thinking of a good investment to venture in.

Dora says:

I will not save it- I will travel and help my children.

Dora says:

Steven Horan says:

I would keep it in my bank account in my home country. I speak the language and trust them enough.

Peter says:

I would buy German Government Bonds. Sure, the prices are toppish and they would not yield that much, but it is a rock solid investment and with the option that they might be converted to an appreciating Deutsche Mark, given a default of the Eurozone.

Andy says:

I’d use half of it to buy property in the country where I live, keep half of the rest in cash fixed deposits across two or three different banks, some where I live and some in my home country. With the rest I’d set up an investment portfolio of high-rated bonds and equity index tracker funds.

annalisa caciorgna says:

If I win £1.000.000 I’m absolutely sure, I’d buy a house in Central London, for my children now 4 and 6 years old, my experience living abroad in England it is amazing! I love here, I don’t want to come back to Italy!

K Jo says:

With Europe the way it is at the moment I’d definitely change it to a more stable currency and then look to invest in property after putting aside enough for my kids to finish university wherever they wanted to go. Those two could be combined depending on the property market for the places they want to study.

Well as I have 2 houses currently and am looking at a third, I can tell you I have:

1/ Invested in property in 2 countries.
2/ Put money in the bank.
3/ Put money in long term savings in the bank.
4/ Bought some stocks and shares.

The importance is to diversify in you investments.

Heath says:

In a Morgan Stanley five year 12% income note

Tony Litwinski says:

I’d split it 60/40 between a mixture of stock funds and cash/fixed-income funds. The world is more and more one global economy, and we need to hold each other accountable to that standard. Certainly the USA and the EU will sink or swim together — we’re in the same lifeboat.

John David Peña says:

If I have 1M I will save it in my bank account at home Because I’m sure that my money is all safe and secure. After all that’s the country were I was born and I have my family living there so they can always check if the money in my bank account is safe and still there.

tarren says:

under my matress, lol

Dimitri says:

I would invest 60% and save 40% in a Swiss bank account.

Mary says:

I’d fix up the house I just bought, create a luxury outdoor oasis in the back yard, then invest the rest and live off the interest. Or maybe open a small business and then invest the remainder. Maybe I’d invest with Llyod’s TSB!

Jaydee Valle Peña says:

I think I will save it where it was more safer…

Alana says:

I would make a trip around the world with my husband!! Then probably put a deposit on a house when we were finished travelling 🙂

John David Peña says:

In Swiss bank account, of course.

1st of all i will make a beautiful home for my family in home town because its been a dream since childhood and the rest money will deposit in a BANK especially in Lloyds TSB International (Because one of my friend is working there and i know how is this bank). Some amount i will put as a FD and rest i will try to start my own trading business and rotate the same money in BANK.

nathan says:

I’d invest it in property while prices are rock bottom, both in Spain and the UK.
Of course I’d also pay my mortgage off!

Gergo Batiz says:

Biggest part of it into real estate and other low-risk investments, and the rest for speculation, and making quick money.

Niamh says:

I’d probably buy a small place at home in Dublin as an investment and for when I visit/work there and put the rest in my Swiss savings account.

alinayu says:

I’ll make a big partyyyy and then travel all over the world

Nicky Peet says:

Never in one place! In land, in bricks, in my business, part in the bank, and maybe in shares of another company

Ted Brenner says:

I would use it to buy an asset like a land or a property to gain a high profit compared to the “solid” interest profit I might get at the bank.

Choku says:

I’ll save it in my bank account.

Andrew says:

I would put it in my bank in Australia. Not feeling so trusting in the European banks at the moment.

Tracey Purgason says:

At a Swiss bank

Jane says:

I would buy investment properties in Berlin and start a bookstore/cafe/art gallery. I would also set up a long term savings plan with my bank here in Germany.

Sue D says:

If I were soooooooooo lucky!! I would save some, buy (probably a UK ) property with some and pay off my childrens mortgages with some

Stephen Chettiar says:

First of all i would give away 2% for charity and 50% i would invest in property (car included) and the balance i would spend it on world tour with family.

Krissy says:

I would buy a couple more investment properties.

Caroline says:

I would keep the money deposited in my bank here in Kuwait, especially that they offer an excellent interest, according to the business market.

Caroline says:

I would keep the money deposited in my bank here in Kuwait, especially that they offer an excellent interest, according to the business market.

I think to buy a property somewhere else is not always a great investment, since there is maintenance to pay, and many other problems.

Krissy says:

I’d buy another investment property.

Christopher says:

I would put it in an investment find focusing on start up companies.

Mariella says:

I don`t think I would save the entire sum. I would probably buy some real estate. But if I really have to save all the money in the bank it would definitely be a bank in the EU. To be more precise, a bank in Germany or in Switzerland.. Depending on the tax I would have to pay. I have much more confidence in legal systems in those countries, unlike the country I come from, an ex YU country, whose legal system is still corrupted and unsafe.

Jo says:

If I had 1 Million euros, “Foreclosures, here I come”

Nomad says:

If I won a million euro, I would pay off all my and my sons’ debt.
Next I would help my sisters and the other people I love.
After that, I would send my kids to university and buy a house,
then invest the rest.

Sunita says:

Since in my country I cannot put the money in a fixed deposit as an expatriate, i
would buy a big property and invest some of the money in gold. I would of course clear of all my loans and obligations before i do that.

estrella carricajo says:

I would invest it in funds

Sofia Evans says:

I would save it in 2 or 3 different banks.

Christopher says:

$1.000.000 Uao…I’ll help needy family after I made that money double. Buy apartments and rent them after the money is doubled. With one million, if you start helping family and friends, or buying ferraris and houses you won’t have anything left to work on and you’ll be broke before you know it. There are a lot of money making businesses that will grow with that kind of little help. I won’t help anyone. So if anyone has a million to spare and wants to watch it grow I have the right ideas to double that money in short term

Steve Varney says:

50,000 in five different banks = 250,000
New Bmw X5= 100,000
Move Home =300,000
3 x 100,000 apartments on Costa to rent out = 300,000
Gifts to family 50,000

I would send one part to my saving account, with the other part I would organize a neighborhood breakfast where everyone has to invite a less fortunate person to share the breakfast with.

Ashraf says:

Bank in home country

Jaco van Wyk says:

I would secure an investment in property assets as well as the stock exchange.

Katlin says:

I would save it by buying house for myself

Jesus says:

Lloyds TBS International!

I would invest part of it in a mutual fund. Probably with Schwaab. Then, part of it in a new business opportunity.

Amjad khan says:

Lloyds TSB International, where ese ! kaching .

sathish says:

putting money in the bank is very safe but we can’t use that money i will rether prefer putting part of money in bank insteD OF ALL THE MONEY

Tom says:

I would invest half the money in two x 2 bedroom flats in commuter belt London – perhaps Reading both would yield a rental return of up to £1500 each.

With the rest I would pay off my Mortgage – and rent my ex-council house in Bath for approx £900 a month.

I would then go to Brazil, buy some land and build a property whilst living off the rental income from the 3 UK properties. Nice work if you can get it.

If I would have one million I would like to by a villa in Rivinj, Croatia and rent it.

Ra says:

Real Estate in Luzern

Lets see the question is where do u save a mill?
i will save it under ground in my garden!!!

Ran Vijay says:

If I had 1 million euros, I would rather like to invest it instead of keeping it in my saving account. Moreover, I would probably try to diversify my investments. For example, just for safety perspective, I would invest around 30% of it in fix-deposit account to take care of the fluctuating economy. Then, I would invest the remaining in real-estates/properties in India. Real estate is considered to be one of the safest investment in India, and if you are lucky and smart enough, it can give you 200% return in just 4-5 years.

Sabine says:

in my home country! but where is home?

Daniele says:

I would invest part of the amount in creating a Language and employment agency and the other part in making sure that my 2 daughters’ university education is cared for.

Natasha Hughes says:

Lloyds TSB International of course!

darioush Mahmoody says:

it depends on the situation, If I put in my home country I will get 17% profit but if I put in the place which I’m living there, I won’t get any profit or they might give 1% which is nothing.

Ilse A. says:

part of it for charity, part of it to have fun with and part investing. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that we win the million dollars (or an ipad, that would be nice too 🙂

mohammad asghar says:

olasz lecke says:

I probably would pay off any debts, help all our children, buy ourselves a holiday cottage somewhere nice……… The rest if any coud then go into a 5 year bond………

Vasilios Koutsiubas says:

If I had €1.000.000 assigned to my name, I would put it on an account where I can easily manage and have a good overview of my money. A few banks offer good account and service for people with a considerable amount of money. Coincidentally, Loyds TSB is one of them. Asset management is very important in order to know that your assets are secure and in good, capable hands. Having a banking manager comes in very handy for situations where you have questions or wish to get information on what else is possible for you and your assets. With the right amount of money and a good bank, the sky’s the limit.

Paula says:

I’d try to locate the majority of it on some savings/investing account and don’t touch it until i figure out what would the money be useful for. investment, the current rates etc.

JL says:

I would combine with other investors to set up an education non-profit to provide small loans for emergency funds (for example, serious illness) for college students from low-income backgrounds at very low interest.

Yelhsa says:

Thank you so much for this atrlcie, it saved me time!

Jon says:

I would put the money in my home banks. Pay off all of my debts, and then most likely distribute it into several different money funds for future needs of myself and my family. 🙂

Minor Vega says:

Nowadays is not safe to put all the money in just one place, so in my case I used 4 ways
1-Cash not all the time and all places you can buy or pay using cards
2- Bank account in my country. (In case that we have any family emergency)
3-Bank account in the country that I live. (Easy to access any time)
4-Invest in the stock market or any additional business.

Four different places less risk

I’d buy something worth as much, and that doesn’t loses its worth!

Tilak Suryanarayanan says:

If only I had 1 million euros, I would certainly invest it on land back in my home country (where incidentally land value is booming).

Kai Zeng says:

put it into a bank and then work out how the money goes with that bank.

Anne says:

I would buy a couple of apartments (in Paris) and rent them.

Kai Zeng says:

I’d like to have my money overseas and work out a business there further.

mehwish says:

Lai Kim Fang says:

If I had a million Euro I’d definitely go into the property market. These are win win investments. The only thing U need to know is where the prime property market is, log onto to the property and watch your money grow.

Carol Willian says:

I feel safer dealing with my home bank! Not that I have some problems with the new bank … but i’m a bit preoccupied what will happen if i go back to Brasil. I know some people that had many complications when they wanted to close the account ..

David Novak says:

I generally follow two principles. First is “never trust door to door sales people” and the second “never trust banks”. Regretfully, my first three moths in Spain just reinforced my distrust. I’m looking for a bank that would suits my business’s needs but so far I didn’t find one that would at least try to show some interest in my inquiries. Funny story, isn’t it? Well, I hope I will be able to participate with a more positive post soon 🙂

Pat Baker says:

If only… I’m pretty sure I’d put the majority of it into property… perhaps property abroad. I already have a little place on the south coast of France and that’s worked out as a nice little investment. I imagine I’d probably enjoy myself with the money a bit first, though.

Tobi says:

Property could definitely a good choice – as long as you don’t touch southern European expat property markets.

emy says:

i wil give away

Autumn says:

I second the property notion! Then it’d be invested somewhere AND I would no longer have to pay rent.

Srini marg says:

Would consult my bankers first and foremost and work with them if they have a investment product, which I will use to plan on my million.

Henrylee says:

If henry have the money, i will give thanksgiving in church, and also, i will give motherless baby, and also provide job opportunity to jobless people.

Jona Weber says:

I would buy an old farm with land in Portugal, renovate it completely, live there and rescue horses. I would invest some of the money to live off the interest, would let part of the renovated farm to tourists that are intersted in horses and animal welfare and try and become self-sufficient.
