The differences between the City of London's position as the world's leading financial centre in 2000 and in 1900 can be understood by considering the actors who occupied centre stage during the late 19th century. These actors, more precisely, those involved in the City's international financial operations, form the subject of this chapter. The chapter is limited to a few reflections upon these actors' experiences in the light of the changes that were to happen within the City as a result of further globalization during the late 20th century. After establishing who the main actors were in international banking, these reflections are concerned with three broad themes: first, the question of entry and exit; second, the level of competition; and, third, strategic options.
