GWA Community News and Staff News


As we look forward to Spring and the lighter, brighter days ahead, we round up what has been a busy few months as we came to the end of 2023 and welcomed the New Year. Our support of local causes, initiatives and hosting of our own events has been as busy as ever…

In the run up to Christmas all three of our offices were drop off points for the Mission Christmas Cash for Kids campaign. Thank you to all our clients and staff who dropped off gifts and supported this great initiative.


In January 2024 we welcomed Amanda Simmister from the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) to our Berwick upon Tweed Office. Amanda was presented with donations by GWA staff. We raised £361.25 from our annual Christmas Jumper Day on 15 December 2023. The total amount of ongoing funds raised to date, is an impressive £3,500.00 

Some of our staff joined Amanda for a bracing walk around the town’s Elizabethan Walls as part of the GNAAS Walk the Wall 2024 Challenge.






Well done to everyone who has played a part in raising these much-needed funds over the years!



In February we supported Berwick Races – Point to Point. We have recently renewed our sponsorship of both Minto Golf Club and Magdalene Fields Golf Club.


As always, we are delighted to welcome new members of staff to our growing Team. We have recently welcomed several new Apprentices to our Berwick Office – Emma Scott, Sam Rogers, Tyla Spouse & Ely Benz-Toreno.

Catriona Robertson returned to our Tax Team in December 2023 and Callum Ellsbury joined as Admin within our Wealth Management Team in January.

Global Market Commentary – June

2024 always promised to be a busy year for elections, with one half of the world’s population heading to the polls. As far as financial markets are concerned, political surprises have now bubbled up in several countries within a short period of time. 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.
