We are enormously grateful for all the support that we receive from our donors, sponsors, trusts, foundations and volunteers whose support allows us to continue to produce world-leading research, support our students and build cutting edge buildings and laboratories. Every £1 that we receive is an additional £1 that supports the expert work that we do.
Sir Stelios Hajj Iannou graduated from Cass Business School with a MSC in Shipping, Trade and Finance in 1989. On graduation, he embarked on his career in shipping (with Stelmar) and, famously, transportation (easyJet). To say thank you to his school, Stelios was keen to give back and support the next generation of students in both these fields.
In 2005 he launched the Stelios Scholarship Fund to support those studying for Masters degrees at Cass. Each year he has generously supported 10 students and over the last 10 years, Sir Stelios has supported 100 students to follow their dreams and complete a Masters degree at Cass Business School.
Taking the step to continue one’s studies through higher education is a huge step and a considerable investment. We are enormously grateful to Sir Stelios and all our donors who generously support students through their studies by funding scholarships and bursaries each year.
Tullett Prebon Information (TPI) is a leading global provider of financial market data and one of Cass Business School’s valued Corporate Partners. As part of their support they collaborate on research into comparative regulation of over-the-counter markets, which will then be made available to the wider industry.
“We look forward to fuelling studies that could shape future industry developments. We welcome the chance to work closely with the faculty and student body at Cass”.
Frank Desmond, CEO, TPI

The relationship between City, University of London and the Worshipful Company of Saddlers dates back to 1894 when the Company provided financial support to establish the Northampton Institute, the forerunner to the current institution. Throughout the lifetime of this relationship City has remained extremely grateful to the Company for its continued support which has helped to shape the lives of many young people undertaking courses of study at an institution steeped in tradition and very proud of its relationship with the City of London.
The Saddlers’ Company currently support City through the Robert Kitchin’s Charity with funding including a donation of £100k for the creation of the Saddlers’ Student Centre in 2007. The Charity also provides support for the salary of a full-time Student Advisor, the entry fee for City’s participation in the Lord Mayor’s Show and the Robert Kitchin Staff Award, which is awarded at the Saddlers Dinner in February. Since 2012, the Charity has also funded the co-sponsorships of two PhD students for the three years of their research degrees: Ali Mair (School of Arts and Social Sciences) and Nicholas Behn (School of Health Sciences).
We are hugely grateful to all the support that we have received form The Worshipful Company of Saddlers over the last 130 years which have made a huge impact on City and our students and helped to make it the wonderful place to study and the award winning research institution that it is today.
