Commercial Partnerships

TheCityUK has a number of exclusive partnership opportunities based on our core work programme. These allow firms to showcase their expertise in a particular area, alongside significant profile building for those seeking to gain traction with senior practitioners, City leaders and policymakers. Opportunities include our Annual Dinner, Member Conference, Research Reports, and Events Programme.

These enable partners to:

  • Produce thought-leadership around a topic of direct relevance to their business
  • Develop business opportunities through our networking and discussion events
  • Improve their brand awareness amongst senior industry practitioners and policymakers
  • Involve their business in the discussions and decisions that are shaping the future of the industry
  • Align their brand with the leading cross-sectoral industry body


TheCityUK Annual Dinner Partner 2016

TheCityUK Annual Dinner has become a signature event in the City’s calendar. Held in November each year at Mansion House, the event attracts a VIP audience of policymakers, practitioners, diplomats and industry leaders, to enjoy an evening of fine dining and networking with distinguished speakers. At previous events guest speakers have included the Deputy Prime Minister, the Foreign Secretary and the Secretary of State for Business.

This event provides a unique opportunity for partners to build their profile and make connections with the most senior City leaders and policymakers. We work with our partners to deliver a bespoke package to meet their specific objectives and to reflect their position in the market. In recent years our Annual Dinner has been sponsored by Mayer Brown and Accenture.

TheCityUK Annual Member Conference Partner

Each year we hold a Member Conference for 150 senior leaders from across our industry to debate the key strategic issues we face. From EU reform, to TTIP, Chinese Free Trade Zones, FinTech and UK Competitiveness, the conference connects the most senior practitioners with policymakers to lead the debate.

Combining plenary sessions, panel debates, and networking events, our Member Conference is the perfect platform for partners to demonstrate thought-leadership, showcase their brand and enhance their position in the market. In previous years this event has been sponsored by Nomura and Oliver Wyman.

TheCityUK has created the sponsorship packages to give our Member Conference partners the best access to profile-building, networking, learning and wider marketing.

Research Report Partner

TheCityUK’s research reports are a critical source of evidence and insight for policymakers and market participants. Their authoritative, evidence-based comment and opinion shape the financial landscape and ensure they are widely referenced by policymakers and the media outlets. The research based policy positions provide the basis for influence and are used across our engagement activities, including in bilateral meetings and roundtables. Recent report sponsors have included Allianz Global Investors and DDCAP.

Over the next year we will publish a number of research reports, including our annual sector reports covering Infrastructure, Islamic Finance, Asset Management, Insurance and Legal Services. Report sponsorship provides firms with the opportunity to raise their profile and position themselves as thought-leaders in a particular area of expertise.
