Networks of Capital: German Bankers and China’s Financial Internationalisation, 1885-1919

During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, foreign banks were a major presence within the Chinese banking sector. They financed China’s rapidly growing foreign trade, issued their own currencies and provided loans to the Chinese government that allowed China to finance wars, fund industrialisation projects and maintain political stability. The lecture explores how the interaction between German and other foreign bankers and Chinese officials, bankers and merchants led to the rapid internationalisation of Chinese state finance and the Chinese banking sector on the China coast.
