GWM opened our Middle East head office here in Dubai in 2009 and are helping thousands of clients achieve their dreams for the future.

The Middle East is a fast growing region and has seen a vast influx of expatriates over the past decade, however it is not a ‘one shoe fits all’ approach to financial planning, as every area and every client is very different. From offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, GWM is well placed to deliver advice to surrounding territories as well as parts of North Africa.

Living in the MENA region can bring many benefits but equally many challenges. Things many people take for granted such as pensions and education as well as healthcare and insurance can often be difficult to source and many expatriates do not feel confident investing too heavily in local financial institutions. Our local team can talk through the pitfalls and options available to you so that you can make the most out of your time in MENA.

When you’re living in the MENA region you must be aware of how local regulation, laws and customs can affect your financial planning. Wills, for example, may not be recognised in some jurisdictions, instead relying on Sharia Law for the distribution of your assets following death. Insurance policies sourced in Europe are also unlikely to cover you in the more remote areas, so it really is vital to get proper advice from people who live and work in the region.

Don’t take our word for it - What our clients have to say

“I have used GWM's services as a financial advisor for a number of years. I trust them with knowledge of my finances and appreciate the presentation of ideas that I had previously not considered. I will be seeking GWM's advice and assistance again in the future on any investment I am looking to make.”

Christopher Johnson

My Advisor is a consummate professional; extremely articulate; analytical; hard working and service-oriented. I would recommend GWM implicitly, for any individual seeking financial advice and guidance. 

Shaun Taylor

Even when my objectives changed, GWM was there to walk me through it. I have recommended GWM to several friends and they all happy. I would recommend GWM to anyone that wants to achieve their objectives and have someone there to help them.
