The Evolution of Banking over Time

Banks were well established in the British Empire when Adam Smith came in 1776. The banking system evolved from the old analog system to the digital one. The critical evolvement of banks, however, is positioned around the Renaissance era 14th to the 17th century when financial institutions flourished in Europe. Since then, banks have been going up and down and most probably will continue to be. Before the use of money, we see it today, grain and cattle were a means of business exchange until late in the 20th century.  Then, banks and merchants started exchanging printed cash for money with a calculated amount of interest.    

Banks in 1914, offered services to customers such as:

  • Money safekeeping
  • Payment processing
  • Loan approvals
  • Investment counseling

The 21-century banks relied entirely on the use of modern technology when banks in the 20th century were more about the use of the old anlage system.
