Citywire has been around since 1999. In the intervening period we have expanded from a few people in a single serviced office to an operation with more than 200 people and offices in Munich, Hong Kong, Singapore, Milan and New York.
We started out back then as a website for private investors in the UK, an operation still flourishing in the shape of Citywire Money.
We are rather more than that now, expanding over the years to serve communities of financial advisers and fund buyers in the UK and across the world. But our values of independence and integrity – and helping people Make Better Investments™ – remain the same.
