We’re here, we’re strong, and we’re focused.
Established in 1993, RWA is 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. 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.
RWA is a small company but big on diversity and equality : a core value regarding both clients and staff. Always have been, always will.
We fervently believe that charity starts at home, and in putting our money where our mouth is. We have combined the two. Our Ethics in Action programme sponsors local education and cultural initiatives.
AMAZING NEWS!! RWA have been voted Social Mobility Champions in this year’s hugely prestigious Financial Times Diversity in Finance Awards
This award recognises the investment we make in our local community, fundraising to provide educational and cultural opportunities for everyone, and highlights our determination to embed diversity, equality and inclusion into our office culture, and our work with clients.

This is an exceptionally busy time but please be assured we will respond as soon as we can.

If you can, it’s a good idea to use your full annual allowance and top up your ISA before April every year. You are allowed to invest £20,000 in each tax year for tax-efficient savings.
We have just experienced the weirdest 18 months ever, which included leaving the EU. We are yet to see the implications on our markets. We did have plenty of notice so we’ve worked hard to rebalance our clients’ portfolios, as far as possible. It is really important that you review your pension, ISA and any other investments in the light of recent changes.
