Notes: Chronicles the Colonial Bank (active in the West Indies and sugar trade). The Anglo-Egyptian Bank, The National Bank of South Africa and the later amalgamated operations. The introduction paints a picture that is a very far cry from the current age of financial engineering and restructuring. " Institituions of essentially British character, formed as they are upon continual adjustment ot some practical need, rather than upon abstract principle, are seldom easy to explain. To understand them we must know something of their background and the conditions under which they work. They have a special relationship to government itself... They invariably attempt and not infrequently achieve, the reconciliation of liberty with authority. It follows, therefore, they they must always be of slow growth , like the oaks of our woods and parks, which are not easy to transplant and never should be moved but with the greatest care, patience and forethought." That said, the bank's operations withstood hurricanes - real and financial - on three continents for over a hundred years.
