The European Association for Banking and Financial History (EABH) is an independent, non-profit association, which is based in Frankfurt am Main. The Association was founded in 1990 with the aim to promote research on banking history, to support the preservation of historically valuable archive material of public and private banking institutions as well as to facilitate dialogue on key challenges and opportunities to the historical study of finance, insurance and globalization. It maintains a global network of financial professionals and academics who meet to discuss and encourage projects in the field of financial and banking history.
