Members recognize their responsibility towards society. Only a well functioning financial sector can help to increase the welfare of nations and people. Accurate archives and accessible record keeping are an indispensable tool to achieve this. These archives provide knowledge of financial history and thus provide insights that help to understand today’s business environment. Leaders should profit from the lessons history provides in order to take competent and effective decisions.
A key task of eabh is to place current challenges of the dynamic financial sector into a historical context. We train historians to work on long-term topics that matter to the management of financial institutions and policymakers.
We are safeguarding the records of financial institutions which will improve the stability of global financial markets. Authentic and reliable memory systems are needed to understand current crises and to evaluate risks.
For that reason, this project on Archival Legislation for Finance (ALFF) has been started in 2012 with the objective of collecting information about the best practices of financial institutions in building and improving their archives.
