Who we are

We are the industry-led body representing UK-based financial and related professional services.

Our purpose is to champion and support the success of the UK-based financial and related professional services ecosystem, and thereby our members.

The industry we represent is a national asset, contributing over 12% of the UK’s total economic output and employing one in every 14 people across the country, with two thirds of these jobs outside London. It is the largest taxpayer, the biggest exporting industry and generates a trade surplus almost equivalent to all other net exporting industries combined. It’s not only a vital asset for the UK economy, but also makes a real difference to people in their daily lives, helping them save for the future, buy a home, invest in a business and protect and manage risk.

Thecityuk Membership Benefits

We have always been member-led and member-focused. That is why our strategy remains aligned with the issues most important to members, and where our uniquely cross-sectoral remit allows us to have the greatest impact on their behalf.
