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

Through membership of TheCityUK, UK-based financial and related professional services firms can advance their business priorities, influence key policy debates and ensure their voice is heard at all levels of government, by policymakers and key industry stakeholders here in the UK and overseas.

"They are as effective an organisation as there is. I have a very high regard for them."
