About Us

The City Forum was founded in 1963, it's principal aim being to bring together people from the insurance market in the City of London to discuss matters of social, educational and mutual interest.

Membership is available by invitation only and is restricted to persons aged between 30 and 50 years of age who are engaged in general insurance in the City of London. The number of members is limited to a total of 50 to retain familiarity amongst the membership and a balance is maintained between insurers, brokers and other professions associated with the insurance industry (for example lawyers, accountants and recruitment consultants). Many of the major companies and Lloyd's brokers and syndicates are represented.  Five events are held each year - a new members lunch in September, formal luncheons with a guest speaker in October, December and February, and an AGM and Gala Dinner in April.  There is no age restriction for guests and past members are also invited to attend all functions.
