European IFA trade body to launch expat forum

Michael Lodhi, chairman of Feifa, said the website, provisionally titled Expat Online Forum, will create an environment where the public can ask questions and obtain answers about living abroad without any commitment to do business.

Mr Lodhi added that expats using the service would be able to consider the services of Feifa members.

The announcement came as Mr Lodhi said he would step down as chairman in September. He said: “We have been working on this new initiative for some time and it is a potentially incredible benefit for our members, partner companies and also consumers - it is also entirely appropriate that it is now driven forward by a new chairman.”

Paul Stanfield, chief executive of Feifa, said vice-chairman Chris Marriot had been asked to fill the chairman seat, subject to being re-elected by members.

Mr Marriot said: “The federation has made incredible strides since launch in 2009 and I would be very happy to be at its helm as we develop additional benefits for our members and their clients”.
