Cyrus Moore
Cyrus Moore is the writing name for a leading City analyst. In 2002, after 14 years in the City, Cyrus left corporate banking to set up his own research house with the objective of providing truly independent investment research, untainted by the conflicts of interest that have so badly tarnished the reputations of rival research analysts within larger investment banks.

Cyrus is the author of, “City of Thieves” (published by Little, Brown Book Group), the bestselling City thriller novel. Whilst the story is fiction, the issues it raises – such as honour, integrity and ethics within the global banking sector – are very real. Cyrus is a Cambridge University graduate. He lives in London with his wife and two children.
