To champion and support the success of the UK-based financial and related professional services ecosystem, and thereby our members.

Membership of TheCityUK offers firms the opportunity to advance business priorities, influence 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.

Why TheCityUK?


  • We are the only industry-led body that represents the interests of all sectors of the financial and related professional services industry, from accountancy, advisory, asset management and banks to consultancies, insurers, legal services and market infrastructure. We are recognised as the unified voice for the ecosystem.
  • We bring the industry together. Our senior forums – in particular our Leadership Council – are where senior ministers, policymakers and key stakeholders from the UK, Europe and the rest of the world come to consult, engage with and address the wider industry.
  • Our forums, extensive programme of events, and respected evidence-based research offers members the opportunity to gain valuable policy insights and play a key role in shaping the future direction of the industry, regulation and policy.
  • We put members at the heart of everything we do and our agenda is shaped by industry leaders from across the UK. We ensure members get maximum value from their membership and have the opportunity to engage with and benefit from the wide range of activities available through our proactive and account management and by continuing to deliver on their priorities.

Membership survey

Each year, we commission Kantar to undertake an in-depth member survey to seek members’ views, ensure that we’re focus on the most important issues and sense check whether we’re continuing to have the impact and influence they expect. Our 2019 survey generated another strong set of results, with continued high ratings for effectiveness, favourability and the significant contributions we make to debates concerning the industry.
