Following Katharine Finn’s appointment as TheCityUK City Chair for Cardiff, we would like to invite you to join our TheCityUK Cardiff City Chair roundtable on 17 May 2018. This roundtable will be an opportunity to discuss the industry’s priorities for Cardiff and how it can continue to support the local economy.
TheCityUK is the industry-led body representing financial and related professional services right across the country. In the UK, across Europe and globally, it promotes policies that drive competitiveness, support job creation and ensure long-term economic growth. UK-wide, the industry contributes £11 of every £100 of the total economic output and employs over 2.2 million people, with two thirds of jobs outside London. It is the largest tax payer, the biggest exporting industry and generates a trade surplus greater than all other net exporting industries combined.
In Cardiff alone, the industry employs more than 20,300 people, making up 10.2% of the city’s total employment and contributing 11.5% of the city’s GVA. As City Chair, Katharine will support and promote our thriving industry and its contribution to the economy. As part of his work, she will convene key local stakeholders to discuss regional policy priorities and will also work closely with other TheCityUK City Chairs to promote the industry across the country.
We look forward to working with you closely over the coming months to promote the financial and related professional services industry in Cardiff and help see our vision for its future success fulfilled.
