US Market Advisory Group and North America

TheCityUK’s relationship with North American markets, policymakers and member firms is an essential one.

US Market Advisory Group (MAG)

Our US MAG is a cross-sectoral senior practitioner body. It provides thought-leadership on the direction of TheCityUK policy and activity relating to the financial and related professional services (FRPS) sector; and on the direction in which the sector would like UK government policy and activity to progress with regard to the US. It also provides an umbrella for driving key projects that have the potential to create new and lasting opportunities for developing dialogue and business between the UK and US.

Priorities of the US MAG

Our US market priorities fall largely under four headings:
- Deepening regulatory cooperation to further expand market access for financial and related professional services
- Strengthening bilateral trade and investment opportunities
- Promoting the UK as an international financial centre to support US investment into the UK
- Cooperating with the US in bilateral, plurilateral and multilateral spheres to address issues of protectionism, market access and regulatory coherence.

Canada

Although not currently a priority market for TheCityUK’s international work, we continue to look to influence policy and explore future trade and investment opportunities for UK-based financial and related professional services firms in Canada. We have a partnership with the Toronto Finance International which represents one of the largest financial centres in North America. The partnership facilitates the exchange of information on relevant industry trends and provides further opportunities for closer collaboration on key issues affecting the UK-Canada relationship in financial and related professional services.

Mexico is covered by the TheCityUK’s Latin America Market Advisory Group.
