Barings Bank, William Bingham and the Rise of the American Nation: A Transatlantic Relationship from the Revolutionary War through the Louisiana
In 1775 John and Francis Baring & Company was just one of many merchant houses in London riding the wave of expanding world trade. By 1803, Baring Brothers Bank and its Dutch associate had financed the Louisiana Purchase, a remarkable achievement due in no small part to the bank's connections in particular with wealthy Philadelphia merchant and later senator William Bingham. This book describes the events and relationships that established Barings as the world's first merchant bank and how it played a major role in transforming the United States into an international superpower. Appendices examine the genealogy of the Baring, Bingham, and Willing families; the impact of these banking pioneers on English aristocracy; the life of Anne Willing Bingham; and information on locations featured in the book, among other topics.

Merchants of War: Barings Bank and William Bingham, Revolutionary Bankers from the War of Independence to the Louisiana
John and Francis Baring established their merchant house in 1762 in Cheapside, London. By 1775 and the eve of the American War of Independence they were more likely to make a loss than a profit and yet by 1803, they had financed the Louisiana Purchase, had the agency of the United States and were described later by Richelieu as the “Sixth greatest power in Europe after Britain, France, Austria, Prussia and Russia”. So how did this happen? Entries in Barings’ ledgers of 1775 provide some of the clues…. This book describes the events and relationships that established Barings as the world’s most powerful merchant bank and the role that family connections played in transforming the new United States into the world’s first superpower. The most significant of these connections was Senator William Bingham of Philadephia – Benjamin Franklin’s war-time undercover agent in Martinique, who first appears in the Barings’ story in 1783, and whose descendants are now part of British aristocracy .For students of British history , the book explores how the world’s first merchant bank changed the political landscape of the times, and the coincidences and serendipity that led to the bargain of all time, the Louisiana Purchase. The period covered by this book saw the biggest pol...

Die Barings Bank Und Das Operationelle Risiko (German
Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich BWL - Bank, Borse, Versicherung, Note: 3,0, Heinrich-Heine-Universitat Dusseldorf, Veranstaltung: Theorie der Finanzdienstleistungen, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Mit nahezu jeder Geschaftstatigkeit sind operationelle Risiken verbunden. Noch bevor uber Markt- und Kreditrisiken nachgedacht werden muss, sind operationelle Risiken bereits vorhanden, denn sie entstehen unmittelbar bei der Grundung eines Kreditinstituts. Aufgrund von drastischen Schaden durch operationelle Risiken, gerieten diese in der Vergangenheit verstarkt in den Fokus. Der Zusammenbruch der Barings Bank verdeutlicht welch immense Schaden durch operationelle Risiken entstehen konnen. Auch andere Finanzdienstleistungsunternehmen erlitten Verluste in Milliardenhohe, was nicht zuletzt an einem enormen Wachstum der derivativen Produkte Ende der 1980iger und wahrend der 1990iger Jahre lag. Die damit verbundenen Risiken wurden teilweise nicht ausreichend erkannt und uberwacht. Zudem wurden betrugerische Handlungen attraktiver, da erfolgreiche Handler verstarkt hohere Bonuszahlungen erhalten haben. Die "Baring Future (Singapore) Pte Ltd." musste im Jahre 1995 so einen erheblichen Verlust verzeichnen, da ihr Finanzmakler Nick Leeson seine Kompetenzen uberschritt und nicht auto...
