‘The ledgers of Filippo Borromei e compagni of Bruges ( for the year 1436) and Filippo Borromei e compagni of London (1436-9) make it possible to see how an Italian bank participated in both the international exchange and local credit markets in north-western Europe in the first half of the fifteenth century. The findings of the Borromei Bank Research Project at Queen Mary, University of London, suggest that long-held theories about imbalances in trade and payments between northern and southern Europe in the later middle ages need to be re-examined, given the bank’s ability to settle international payments by book rather than bullion transfers.’
