That's a low salary for a Western expat. You'll have to share an apartment and really won't have much left for savings.

What kind of 'finance'?

I'm guessing that's for an unqualified IFA. You won't party hard on the base salary. UAE can be cheap up to a point, but you may not be able to keep up with potential friends because of the cost. I could blow your base salary on a week's hard partying, and I don't shove stuff up my nose or indulge Russian hookers.

Edit to say I spent 4 1/2 years in UAE. It was fun, but it wouldn't be on a shoestring.

Have a close look at the cost-of-living spreadsheet and threads. It'll be tight, for sure.
