The saga of Mendelssohn & Co. is that of a private banking house run by five generations of a prominent German dynasty which included many extraordinary personages. It is a story that also reflects the political and economic history in which the bank was an active player.
The book Das Haus des Kranichs. Die Privatbankiers von Mendelssohn & Co. (1795-1938) (The House of the Crane: The Private Bankers of Mendelssohn & Co. (1795-1938)) is a case study in the personal and social ethics of private banking from the perspective that wealth not only entails opportunities but social responsibility as well. It is a story of how positive social and commercial results can be attained by following clear ethical principles that can also serve as a viable alternative to the values that dominate today’s financial industry.
