At Australian Expatriate Services (AES), we specialise in providing solutions to the unique requirements of Australian non-residents via our Australian qualified Advisors.

We have been providing these services to expatriates for more than 25 years.


Client satisfaction and our reputation are absolutely integral parts of our business. We have been based in S.E.Asia & the Middle East for more than 25 years and throughout that period have established significant partnership with our clients. We are dedicated to helping clients through all stages of their financial lives ie moving offshore, residing offshore and returning home.


We appreciate that the key to providing high-quality advice is ensuring that the advice is tailored to our client’s specific situation and needs. We’re all different, with our own specific goals and objectives that we wish to achieve. We all have different attitudes to investment and risk, and we all have contrasting needs when it comes to how much risk insurance we need, or on how much we would like to retire with. By providing tailored advice to our clients we are able to develop a strategy that is the right fit for you.


Our main goal is to help Australian expatriates meet their financial and lifestyle goals and protect their families. But we also work hard to provide you peace of mind. Regular reviews of your financial plans are conducted as an integral part of AES’s service, ensuring your financial plan is up-to-date and matches your current and future financial needs.

More than 60,000 Australians leave our shores every year to live overseas for 12 months or more, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
