GWA Staff News – Spring 2022

We are sorry to have had to say goodbye to some of our long standing and most valued staff members. Our tax department lost two seasoned professionals: Tina Pratt retired at the end of December and Jean Laing retired at the end of February. We will also miss Pamela Wedderburn who retires in April. We thank all three ladies for their many years of loyalty and  dedication and wish them long and happy retirements.

Once again we are delighted to welcome lots of new faces to the team. Since our last newsletter Karen Smith has joined our Admin team, Christiaan Hansen and Michael Drummond have both taken up positions in our Tax department, Angela Edgar has started in our PAYE department and Venita da Silve Nolte has taken on the mantle of Financial Assistant. We also welcome Paul Allan, Rebecca Lawson and Catherine Findlay to our Wealth Management department. We hope they will all settle in quickly and soon feel part of the crew.

We are pleased to announce an addition to our wider GWA family. We send congratulations and very best wishes to Chartered Accountant Sarah Strathdee and her husband Neil on the safe arrival of their first child, Lowrie. And, of course, not forgetting doting grandma, Wendy Strathdee who heads up our VAT and Bookkeeping team.

With much still to be decided by voters, there is greater uncertainty in the short-term investment outlook. However, inflation remains on a declining path in the UK, US and Europe, while economic growth appears strong.

Global Market Commentary – May

Recent data has hinted at a divergence between the US and UK/EU economies, with signs of an economic slowdown in the States coinciding with Britain and Europe rebounding from a period of stagnant GDP growth. Having been neglected for several years post-Brexit, there is hope that UK stocks may finally prosper given a more favourable macroeconomic environment.
