PARIS. Action de F1000. black. No 2925. Fold. Founded by Jacques Lafitte in 1837 to support the industrialisation of France. The bank had a start capital of 55 million FRF of which 15 million was paid. The bank issued bonds and invested the proceeds to manufacturers who wanted to modernise and expand. As such it was trendsetting and historically very important. Lafitte led the French National Bank between 1814 and 1820 and was, very briefly, prime minister of France during the July Revolution. He also financed the come-back of Napoleon (his famous '100 days'). (Source: Aufbruch auf Aktien, J. Schmitz, 1996). Extremely rare.
