The European Association for Banking History (EABH) e.V. was founded in 1990 in Frankfurt, Germany by Manfred Pohl, as a forum for research into the history of banking, insurance and finance. Members [1] consist over 100 European and international banking, insurance and financial institutions, amongst them most of the European Central Banks.


EABH is a European network that acts as a bridge between bankers, financiers, academics and archivists. EABH supports research into all aspects of banking, insurance and financial history, from the earliest innovations in the middle-ages, to developments since the industrial revolution and in the present. What drives the Association is the concept that the better our knowledge and understanding of past precedents in the field of banking and finance, the better equipped we are to make sound decisions today. For this reason the EABH encourages a genuine broadening of public understanding about how and why banks and financial institutions support and shape our economy and society.

The EABH offers assistance to its corporate members, advising on their archives´ organisation and development plans as well as on staff training.
