City & Financial Global
A former investment banker (Lazard, Rothschild and Salomon Brothers) and strategic consultant (Booz Allen), Maurice Button has built City & Financial Global into one of the UK's leading research-based conference companies. He sold its sister company, City & Financial Publishing, which he also founded, to a global publishing company a few years ago. The focus of both businesses largely derives from his interest in the financial markets and in government policy across all areas. Concurrently, he is also Chief Executive and Chairman of City Week, the premier annual gathering of the international financial services community. Maurice is a former Chairman of the Bow Group, a leading political think tank, for which he also wrote research papers, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a Member of the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment. He has an honours degree in Latin and Greek from Bristol University, and an MBA degree from London Business School.
