The US and the UK – growing together

The United States and the United Kingdom are home to the world’s two leading financial centres. The US-UK relationship in financial and professional services (FPS) is already of huge value to both partners. Bilateral trade is close to $80bn, while two-way foreign direct investment is around $450bn, supporting close to 150,000 jobs.

The City of London Corporation is establishing an office in the US for the first time. This reflects the City of London Corporation’s commitment to deepen collaboration with a key ally and trading partner in a time of profound technological, strategic, and geopolitical change. Now is the time to work together to reduce friction and increase trade, through two interconnected levers: policy and investment. If you would like to speak to us, please contact us at USoffice@cityoflondon.gov.uk.
