How we make money
The first question you should ask any financial company! This is broadly how we earn our keep:
- Advertising and sponsorship on the website
- Advertising and sponsorship in our magazines for financial professionals
- Sponsored events attended by financial professionals
- Fund management companies pay us to license the Citywire Fund Manager Ratings. We never charge them to rate their managers - they only pay us if they want to license the Ratings.
Who we are
Citywire is the brainchild of our chairman Lawrence Lever, formerly financial editor of the Mail on Sunday and assistant City editor of The Times. David Turner, an experienced hand in financial publishing who joined in 2000, is chief executive.
Some other key people: commercial director George Ball, product development director Nick Collard and Richard Lander, head of new media.
A few of our non-executive directors: Mark Wood, is the former chairman and chief executive of ITN and is now CEO of Future Plc; Nicholas Berwin was a top City investment banker who now devotes a lot of his time, free of charge, to the arts; Kevin Gundle runs a business investing in hedge fund fund of funds. He is a driving force behind ARK, the hedge fund charity which raises millions for disadvantaged kids around the world.
In total, around 145 people work at Citywire – if you’re interested here are a few random pics of them Most work at our Head Office in London, but we are expanding rapidly overseas with offices in Singapore and Munich.
