Established in 1993, we are proud to be financial advisers at the heart of our local community, part of the most diverse and cosmopolitan capital city in the world.
We believe the only way is ethics and will help you tailor your investments accordingly. RWA is pleased to be a member of the UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association
Our mission is to balance clients’ portfolios to reflect your moral compass, and our aspiration is to have them perform well in a rising market, with a high level of protection if indices fall.
We are open, straightforward and accountable in our dealings. Ruth lives locally and encounters clients every time she steps outside the door. THAT is accountability.
We are a small company but big on diversity and equality – a core value regarding both our clients and our staff. Always have been, always will.
Ruth was unspeakably proud to be a finalist in Investment Week magazine’s Women in Investment Awards 2019.
We fervently believe that charity starts at home, and in putting our money where our mouth is. We have combined the two and regularly sponsor with a passion local education and cultural initiatives to which everyone is welcome – as part of RWA’s Ethics in Action initiative.
By using our services, you will be currently be making life brighter for children at St Matthias School in Wordsworth Road, refugees at Akwaaba social centre, children singing in Young Dissenters choir.
To enable us to help our community even more, we asked internationally acclaimed vocalist and composer Clara Sanabras and maverick musician Harvey Brough to bring light into our dreary lockdown lives by beaming magical songs in a fundraising concert from St Matthias Church in Stoke Newington. Music for Midsummer : a virtual concert was streamed on Friday 26 June 2020 at 8pm.
We are thrilled that the concert has so far raised £3,000 for our charity DissentersArtsN16. Click here if you’d like to make a donation, and know that it is received with heartfelt thanks.
We send best wishes to all of our clients and reassurance that we are well and open for business. We are working partly from home, which means we won’t always be answering the office phone so best to email us.
Panic around coronavirus is affecting markets worldwide. We are pleased to see the protective element we build into every one of our investments on your behalf is holding up well under the circumstances. We recommend you sit tight until the markets bounce back, which they will.
However, we do understand it’s a worrying situation, and suggest you get in touch if you wish to discuss your portfolio.
If you’re currently making investments, there are delays with documents reaching us by post. We will use electronic copies / scans where possible, or ask that you drop documents to the office / we collect from you.
Meetings are currently by phone or zoom but we’re really missing seeing clients in person so….we are now offering socially-distanced face-to-face meetings in our amazingly huge office (click to see pic) If you’re comfortable with that, you’d be most welcome. We have gloves and hand sanitiser and would love to see you!
This is an exceptionally busy time but please be assured we will respond to all enquiries as soon as we can. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
