The landscape may have changed, but the purpose of finance remains the same – CityAM

Like many of those working in the industry at that time, I didn’t foresee the hurricane that was about to hit in the shape of what we now refer to as the global financial crisis.

This was, of course, merely the beginning of a period of challenges, transformation and reinvention, much of which is still underway.

A little over a decade on, I now head up TheCityUK, an organisation born out of those same storms, founded to convene the collective voice of the many sectors across the financial industry. Our aim today remains fundamentally the same as it was then: to champion and support the success of the financial and related professional services ecosystem.
