Title
Whom Fortune Favours : The Bank of Montreal and the Rise of North American Finance
Abstract
A two-volume set, the first volume covering the period 1817 to 1945, and the second covering 1946 to 2017. The author points out that the Bank of Montreal is not only Canada's first bank, it has also occupied a prominent place in the pantheon of Canadian nation building. He notes that the depth and breadth of the bank's history offer a unique opportunity to analyze a singular organization over ten generations. As an institution, the Bank of Montreal (today referred to simply as BMO) played a critical part in the destiny of its home city and in the emergence of Canada on an international scene. Crucial to the development of Canadian and North American financial systems, BMO shaped the political economy of banking. Over the last half century, the author contends, the institution's response to successive economic, technological, demographic, and regulatory shifts illustrates how Canadian and North American finance has adapted to the challenges before it.
