Staff News

We have recently welcomed two new faces to the GWA team in Berwick. Rona Keeves has joined our Accounts team and Chloe Mifsud has joined our Tax team. We have also welcomed back Sarah Strathdee from her maternity leave following the birth of baby daughter Lowrie.

We are delighted to announce that Rebecca Lawson from our Wealth Management team, has recently attained Chartered status with the CII (Chartered Insurance Institute). Rebecca joins both Neil Robertson and Mark Harrison who already hold Chartered status and as such are all recognised as the highest qualified practitioner of their profession.

Finally, we are saying a sad goodbye to a very long serving member of our team, Patricia (Trish) Melia. Trish is retiring in June having been with GWA for 40 years. You can read mre about Trish’s time at GWA in our “tribute to Trish“. We know you’ll join us in sending Trish our very best wishes for a long, happy and healthy retirement.

Community News

We are always pleased to be able to support local causes where we can. Most of these are organised by volunteers, so we would also like to give a big pat on the back to all those who put in many hours of time and effort to bring these organisations and events to life.

Haddington in Bloom do a splendid job of keeping the town looking fabulous all year round, especially throughout the spring and summer seasons. So, we are delighted to be supporting their efforts again.

We are supporting Berwick Opera’s production of Sunshine on Leith, which is showing at the Maltings from 17-20 May and also the Horncliffe Beer and Music Festival, taking place on the weekend of 8 and 9 July. One of our admin team, Emma Stuart nominated Tweedmouth Prior Park School to receive a donation from our staff community support scheme. A couple of the pupils did such a good job of holding our banner we may just recruit them to help us set up at the Summer Shows this year

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.
