Ledger of Foreign Agents
Shortly after opening for business in 1817 Bank of Montreal began dispatching agents to set up operations in key financial centres in the U.S. and Europe. Establishing networks of finance and capital in the North Atlantic world was vital to our early success. Much of this is captured in the Foreign Agents Ledger, 14th July 1885 to 30th April 1901, Bank of Montreal Head Office, No. 10., which records transactions between Bank of Montreal and its agencies and foreign banks.
