Even if you have an existing financial advisor, it is unlikely they will be able to introduce you to the tax-saving opportunities available in your new country of residence.

Furthermore, a local advisor in your new country will more likely understand your unique expatriate status, how that relates to any tax saving potential in the nation in which you are residing, and how you need to structure your affairs appropriately in case you should ever want to repatriate or relocate elsewhere. 

Planned correctly, a move to another country can have some very special future tax advantages.
