Livery Companies are vigorous, self-contained societies of professional and business people, bound together by traditional customs which have been handed down for generations, including a strong commitment to charitable and educational causes. This is all carried out under the direction of the Master assisted by the Wardens and Court of Assistants. With allegiance to the Sovereign and a vow of obedience to the Lord Mayor to maintain the franchises and customs of the City of London the membership also plays an integral function in the workings of local government in the City with liverymen taking part in the annual election of the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs.
Granted Livery status in January 2000, the Worshipful Company of World Traders is proud to follow in this fine tradition. We have over 250 members and a charitable trust which has set up annual prizes to encourage young world traders. In this regard strong links have already been established with a number of schools, universities and institutes with the grant of prizes and scholarships.
