This chapter examines the origins of British multinational banking. The critical period of the history of British multinational banking happened during the fifty years between the 1830s and 1890. This period was the entrepreneurial age of British multinational banks where they acted in a Schumpeterian way. During this period, there were over thirty different banks operating over 700 branches. Since the United States and continental Europe had their own banks during this era, overseas banks had gone to the south and east regions of the world where they flourished. These banks specialized in overseas banking and they focused in particular regions or countries. Furthermore, these banks originated as multinational trade banks but several factors led them to seek to internalize trade finance and exchange operations by establishing branches.
