Welcome to GWM Abu Dhabi

Living and working in Abu Dhabi, we understand the hurdles you must overcome as we have faced them too.

When choosing to embark on your expat adventure, financial planning tends not to be at the top of your list of priorities.

However, upon arriving in Abu Dhabi, sound international advice, independent choices and secure, confident decisions are required.

By taking a little time now, and using your imagination to step into the future, you can look back and understand what needs to happen for you to enjoy your perfect lifestyle.



Based in Abu Dhabi, our team of experienced consultants help expats from all around the world to construct a holistic financial plan, built around the lifestyle you desire.


The Abu Dhabi Office is headed up by James Ferguson. James has worked in Banking and Financial Services for 18 years.

James is qualified to Level 4 status with the Chartered Insurance Institute and the London Institute of Banking & Finance in the UK and is currently part way through becoming Chartered” James joined the Guardian Wealth Management in 2016, moving to the UAE to work in the Dubai office where he has been advising and supporting this clients through all their Financial Planning needs.

This is where we need to understand the hard facts and start crunching the numbers. We need to ascertain what you have coming in, and what there is going out. We will create a cash flow model which will indicate whether or not you are on track to achieve your goals. In doing so will highlight any gaps you may have in your financial structure or conversely, if there are surplus funds for further investment.

If there is a gap, we will find a way to bridge it and keep you on target, where there is surplus we will look at bettering your goals. It may be that you can improve your situation by doing little more than rearranging a few savings, or it could be a complete restructure depending on your circumstances. Once everything is in place we enter the review phase, ensuring your plan remains appropriate to your needs and that any changes in your personal life haven’t affected your objectives.
