Welcome to Euromoney's 50th anniversary edition

Letters from editor Clive Horwood and managing director John Orchard.

From the editor

This is a very special issue of Euromoney. We are delighted to celebrate having covered the global financial markets for the past 50 years. The current Euromoney team is honoured to be stewards of a proud history begun by Sir Patrick Sergeant in 1969, whose career story we take great pleasure in telling in this issue.

Clive Horwood

Patrick and long-term editor and chairman of Euromoney, Padraic Fallon, taught us that, for all its complexities, finance is really like any other business: it is about people. People bring success or failure. People give institutions their identity. That’s as true as ever today, even as technology and process become ever more important to banking. 

That is one of the reasons why, for this 50th anniversary issue, we have picked out the six individual bankers that we believe define each of the decades of Euromoney’s existence. They are all giants of the industry. Their names transcend it: Warburg, Rockefeller, Reed, Kopper, Botín and Dimon.
