Expats, Interest Rates, Property, Retirement, Semigreys

The Semigreys

The final clutch of exiles I’ve observed are the semigreys, people too young to retire in the conventional sense, who are living the vida loca on the proceeds of property sales. Plunging interest rates present quite a fiscal test to those trying to maintain a hedonistic lifestyle on dwindling assets while waiting for the pensions to kick in, assuming there will be a pension to kick in given the parlous position of the British public purse. That’ll be us then.

  1. Yeah I’m 40 and can’t wait to be retired, I’m sort of semi retired a british expat in the USA. I can’t wait for being a pensioner, playing bingo all day with those big pens, and also sitting gossiping all day in the hairdresser talking about stress incontinence!
