The Weekend City Press Review is a UK publishing company which provides a summary of all the weekend's financial and business news by using 13 U.K. newspapers as well as summarising every company tipped in both the newspapers and the Investors Chronicle. It was created in 1991 and has attracted a range of subscribers, from city institutions and FTSE listed companies, to educational establishments and private investors.

Subscribers benefit from comprehensive coverage of major company and business stories without having to read the entire story. The Weekend City Press Review is noted as 'an excellent comprehensive roundup of the weekend's press' in Dominic Connolly's book 'The UK Trader's Bible'[1].

It is believed that the Weekend City Press Review was the first UK publisher of business news online - its first article appearing in 1995.



The company was founded by Gareth Robertson in 1991 though he had been using the concept some time before that, it was set up in the hope to give analyst sales leads out of the weekends press. This expanded to what it is today, covering summaries and briefs from the 13 leading weekend papers, covering a profile from each of the papers, tips and hints on shares and businesses as well as providing a viewpoint from the editor.

It is also used by AOL who uses The Weekend City Press Review to provide content to their popular UK money pages on their website.

Charitable Work

In 2009 the company became involved in The Lord Mayors appeal where it is donating a share of its profits to the organization. The appeal is supporting charites such as St John's Ambulance and The Lord's Taverners.


The service is popular on the city, with prominent users such as KPMG and Goldman Sachs. Also popular with investers and stockbrokers it is further being used by schools and universities.
