Case Studies

The formal Merchant Banking in India started in 1969 when Grind Lays bank set up its merchant banking division Later SBI floated its merchant banking division in 1972 The origin of merchant banking is to be traced to Italy in late medieval times and France during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The Italian merchant bankers introduced into England not only the bill of exchange but also all the institutions and techniques connected with an organised money market. Merchant banking consisted initially of merchants who assisted in financing the transactions of other merchants in addition to their own trade. In France, during seventeenth and eighteenth centuries a merchant banker (le merchant Banker) was not merely a trader but an entrepreneur par excellence. He invested his accumulated profits in all kinds of
promising activities.  He added banking business to his merchant activities and became a merchant banker.
