What is the connection between WCIT and the City of London?

Livery companies trace their roots back to the medieval guilds who were responsible for the protection and promotion of their individual trades in the City of London.  Today, Livery companies support the governance of the City of London through the annual election of the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs.  WCIT is part of the Financial Services Group of Livery companies, working with the Lord Mayor to promote London as a global financial centre.
