New City Agenda provides fresh thinking on issues relating to the Financial Services industry. It assists in the development of appropriate and sustainable public policy.
About New City Agenda
New City Agenda is a financial services think tank and forum founded by The Rt Hon Lord McFall, The Rt Hon David Davis MP, and Lord Sharkey. It was founded in response to the lack of new ideas and challenging perspectives emerging from current analyses of the issues facing the industry, government and consumers.
New City Agenda believes the Financial Services industry can offer greater social value in the conduct of its business. We will aid the industry to achieve this by developing new financial initiatives that are good for society and that will influence public policy towards more sustainable economic models.
