Whitehead Ruth

She became transformed by adversity into a very angry expert on finance, and in 1993 RWA was born. Ruth is frequently quoted in the national press and trade publications, has broadcast on BBC 4's "Money Box" programme, BBC News and BBC London radio, and writes for the Guardian and Observer newspapers, amongst others. We are very proud to have won the Responsible Investment IFA of the Year award in 2012 and 2013 - and been shortlisted four years running.

Drawing on her background in music, Ruth also founded and conducts Stoke Newington's own community choir, Chorus of Dissent and professional orchestra, the Elastic Band. Their concerts have been a sellout since inception. Watch Chorus of Dissent and Elastic Band on YouTube celebrating the 450th anniversary of our Tudor church, Old St Mary's.
