Price Currents, Financial Information and Market Transparency
Web Seminar Programme
27 Nov 2020
Jointly organized by EURHISFIRM and NEHA, this workshop focuses on price currents and other types of public and private price information. What do such publications tell us about the markets they served, the stocks listed, the terms and conditions of trade, and the individual market’s degree of transparency? What do differences across Europe tell us about the character of national markets?
The workshop is intended as a preparation for a full session on these issues at the World Economic History Conference in Paris, 2021.
All meetings will take place via Zoom. Colleagues wishing to attend should send an email to Joost Jonker, firstname.lastname@example.org, so as to be given the access codes and password for each meeting.

Financial history at face value
29 Oct 2019
London , United Kingdom
eabh in co-operation with The Rothschild Archive
This workshop is aimed at minting and financial institutions’ archivists, money museum curators and researchers. The extensive archives of mints are a treasure-trove of information often covering extended periods of time. Yet some of these archival treasures are only accessible to a handful of specialists or remain largely unknown to researchers and the public. This workshop aims to present these materials to a wider audience and make them more accessible to interested researchers and scholars.
Since antiquity, apart from serving as means of payment and store of value, coins also served politically and culturally important functions, representing sovereignty and fashioning identities. Private or public mints, acting in tune with economic development and financial innovation, created coinage that itself is a valuable source of social, political and cultural history.
What is the legacy of these mints’ records? What is their relevance today? Can the use of these records raise public awareness of their relevance for the history of money and finance?What is their research potential? Can they contribute to a wider view on the history of money and payment systems?
Can Finance Save the Planet?
Climate change and its implications for investors and policy makers
6 May 2019
Frankfurt , Germany
A global youth movement has coalesced in relation to the political lethargy towards climate change. Their force can no longer be ignored by global politics. Yet, what about other actors concerned? How for example does the financial sector influence the climate? Or controversy, how will ongoing environmental changes and political responses affect our money and investments?
In this talk we would like to take the opportunity to discuss a long-term view on the topic with two pioneering experts in the field. Amongst others the following questions will be addressed:
What is the rationale for sustainable or ESG (Environmental, Social and Government Investment)?
Do these investments enhance risk-adjusted returns?
Which is a best practice approach and has ESG investing changed over time?
What are the initiatives of the European Union to promote sustainable finance? Are they going in the right direction? Which are the current political headwinds?
How has central banks’ thinking about climate change developed over time? Which are their current streams of work regarding the topic?
What are the risks to financial stability emanating from climate change and the transition to a low carbon economy?
How and to what extend does climate change have an impact on the conduct of monetary policy? Or conversely, does monetary policy affect the climate?
Finally, will the financial sector be able to go beyond the role of dealing with the risks and consequences of climate change and be part of a solution?
All participants are kindly invited to join us and the experts for a free networking lunch following the discussion.
Please register in advance to avoid disappointment.
The history of professional fund management
26 Oct 2018
Up to the beginning of the 20th century stocks were primarily owned by wealthy private individuals. Now, 100 years later, institutional investors hold almost twice the amount. The ascent of institutional investors as one of the most powerful players on global financial markets today is a highly relevant yet under researched topic.This conference will ask the question of when, how and why this massive structural shift happened? And which are the consequences for our societies? How can we set policy frameworks today in a way that ensures that these investors will be able to deliver adequate pension payments in the future?

Exploring alternative business forms for durable financial services
15 Jun 2018
eabh in cooperation with Fondazione 1563 per l’Arte e la Cultura della Compagnia di San Paolo
‘The City is too big and socially useless’
said Lord Adair Turner, former chairman of the UK Financial Services Authority in 2009.
That legitimacy question has not gone away since, indeed, if anything it appears to grow stronger. This conference explores how financial institutions have tackled it by developing alternative goals and business forms for durable financial services.

This one-day workshop is designed for financial institutions’ archivists, researchers and potential users. How can archives prepare their collections of information in a way that puts them to their best use? How do researchers use archive collections? Are there new ways that they can be used by financial institutions themselves as they face challenges of the present and future? How can the historical records be made accessible to and exploited by a wider audience? How can archives help us to reflect on legacy of the social purposes that inspired the origins of many financial institutions and the role of banks and finance in society?
