Notes to Editors

City of London Group plc (COLG) is fully listed on the London Stock Exchange
plc (LSE symbol CIN).

The Company's strategy is to build a quality Financial Services Group centred
on Specialist Financing and Alternative Fund Management. The Company believes
there are particular opportunities in the SME and professional services
sectors as major national and foreign banks limit new lending to these
borrowers. It therefore seeks to identify and exploit product niches and
business models in these sectors where they are supported by strong day to day
management teams, providing initial equity, working capital and seed funding
for those teams.

Since 2009, COLG has developed four specialist financing funds, pledging
significant seed funds to Therium Capital Management Limited, a third party
Litigation Funder, Credit Asset Management Limited and Professions Funding
Limited, which respectively provide asset backed finance to SME's and working
capital loans to professional practice firms andfinally Trade Finance
Partners Limited, a trade finance provider to the SME market.
