"TheCityUK champions the international competitiveness of the financial services industry. Created in 2010, we support the whole of the sector, promoting UK financial services at home and overseas and playing an active role in the regulatory and trade policy debate.

"We have a global export focus with a commitment to help UK based firms grow their business in other parts of the world. As of 31 March 2011, the financial services industry accounted for 9.6% of UK GDP and 11.6% of UK tax receipts. The sector currently employs over 1 million people, more than 66% of whom work outside London, and underpins the businesses that drive jobs and growth. Added together with the further 967,000 employed in professional services, it is easy to see the importance of a sector that employs one in every ten of the working population." [1]
