What is the Economic Development Office (EDO)?

The City of London Corporation works with UK-based financial and professional services firms to enhance the competitiveness of the City, informing policy and promoting export and investment around the world.

The Economic Development Office leads on this work for the Corporation, engaging and collaborating with business and government to ensure the UK remains the best place globally for financial and professional services and delivering growth across the economy.

The City already brings prosperity to the rest of London and the UK. EDO works to maximise the City's impact especially by promoting responsible business, increasing the industry's impact on employability, and supporting enterprise.

All the work of the EDO is underpinned by strong research and relationships which are built and maintained with strong links to government and business.

The office is headed up by Damian Nussbaum, Director of Economic Development.
