The World Traders seeks to raise awareness, understanding, and the standard of practice in world trade and to provide a welcoming environment in which fellowship and understanding can flourish.

Our objectives are fellowship, welfare and education, working in the best interests of the trading community of London and overseas. Members retain strong interests in world trade and pursue charitable and educational initiatives through our Charitable Trust.

We organise many informative events over the course of each year, which vary according to the interests of the current Master. Each year our flagship event, the Tacitus Lecture, impresses the City and wider business community with a leading exploration of a topic relating to world trade.

You can read more about our charitable interests in this section, which are influenced by a commitment to world trade and promoting education.
