From the boss of the British Bankers’ Association to high profile cabinet ministers, the financial elite turned out in force at the City A.M. birthday bash last night – and I got in as well!
But amid all the Champagne quaffing and canapé scoffing, what were the highlights? Well, as I arrived, Cabinet Office Minister Matthew Hancock spoke passionately about the paper’s core values of economic liberty and the benefits of competition and innovation. Let’s just say that this set the tone for the entire evening – which also saw top economist Vicky Pryce and IOD boss Simon Walker share their compliments to the paper.
All in all, a great night and the perfect excuse for the “next generation” of City A.M. advocates to celebrate.
