TheCityUK National Conference
Our most recent National Conference was held in Edinburgh, in partnership with SFE and sponsored by PwC and State Street. It included a series of panel discussions on critical industry issues: levelling up, trust and reputation, diversity and skills, and the green finance landscape one year on from COP26. Around 260 delegates also heard keynote speeches from across the political spectrum - Andrew Griffith MP, Economic Secretary to the Treasury, Anas Sarwar MSP, Labour Leader in Scotland and the Rt Hon Nicola Sturgeon MSP, former First Minister of Scotland.
Regional economic research
We have recently published two major regionally-focused reports: ‘Enabling growth across the UK’, which explores the contribution the industry makes to every region and nation of the country alongside detailed policy recommendations.; and ‘Exporting from Across Britain’, which examines the role of financial and related professional services exports to the each region and nation of Great Britain. Both reports generated widespread regional media coverage and were supported by a bespoke mailing to MPs, highlighting the benefits the industry brings to each of their constituencies. These benefits were also promoted to MPs and peers at our parliamentary reception.
