The City of London: A place to connect

It is great after the summer break to see the buzz returning in the Square Mile. This week we had chance to meet again in person and reconnect at our Ward of Cheap summer reception. We reflected on personal and professional challenges we have all faced in different ways, and discussed how we can shape the future of the Square Mile.

Space for pedestrians

July the Court of Common Council approved a report initiating the Pedestrian Priority Streets Programme, a 3-year initiative to improve conditions for people walking in the City which is linked to both the City of London’s Transport Strategy and the Climate Action Strategy. Traffic and public realm measures were installed in Summer 2020 as part of the on-street measures for the City’s COVID-19 response. The City Corporation is now seeking views on the current temporary street measures.

My Reflections on the future of the ESG and Impact Investment Space

This month marks the end of my four-year tenure on the board of Investing for Good, an impact-driven sustainable and social finance intermediary. Founded in 2004, Investing for Good has a mission to grow the pool of investment capital that is mobilised for social purpose, resulting in measurable benefits for society. My departure seems like an appropriate time to reflect on the recent evolution of this investment space and look ahead to its future in light of the global pandemic.

Now is the time for leadership and progress

Over the course of the last eight months we have relied heavily on the use of digital communications. In many ways we have probably leapt forward in a matter of weeks what would otherwise have taken years, and in many places, this has been very effective. However, the way we have been operating cannot be a complete or a permanent alternative to the economic, social and infrastructural value of the traditional way we do business in the UK and its economic heartland, The City of London.

A time for patience, perseverance and practical considerations

It has now been four months since many of us left our offices in the City of London to work from home, and while 'normality' is still some way off, it is a good time to reflect on what has been achieved as well as what we can, need and want to do moving forward.

Personal message from the Alderman of the Ward of Cheap

Recent weeks, and in particular the events of last week, have understandably caused high levels of anxiety. Firstly, for the health and wellbeing of our friends and loved ones, and also because of the impact coronavirus is having on businesses and jobs in the City and across the UK.
