In Dubai, it's geared towards expats in general, but I find that they have a lot more information on international funds/stocks/etc then say a U.S. advisor might have. I focus my skandia and friends provident funds on international and my U.S.A accounts on more of a domestic approach.
I have been considering the real estate in the USA. I am a Florida native so possibly somewhere in that area, but there is a good possibility I won't go back to U.S.A and will end up in Europe, so maybe something out there. Time to use the good old PetroDollars.
