About

TheCityUK is the industry-led body representing UK-based financial and related professional services.

TheCityUK is the industry-led body representing UK-based financial and related professional services, an industry that contributes over 10% of the UK’s total economic output, is the largest tax payer and employs 1 in 14 people across the country – two thirds of whom are based outside London. It is also the biggest exporting industry, generating a trade surplus equivalent to all other net exporting industries combined.

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

"I really think that [TheCityUK] ought to view what they’ve achieved over the first 10 years with great satisfaction. If they weren’t there, we should suggest that they were invented."

It is a milestone for the organisation and an opportunity for us to reflect on our work with members over the past decade, the wide range of economic and social benefits thriving financial and related professional services bring to the UK, and the transformation that has been taking place across the industry. And, against a backdrop of continued change there is much more to be done – across the next 10 years and beyond.
