(footnote) The first Bank of United States however did open in Philadelphia in 1791 with branches in eight different cities. The bank conducted general commercial business as well as acting on behalf of the government. The bank appeared to be a triumph as it was managed well and was actually very lucrative.

Banks should consider other options before taking a chance on losing good customers, loyal employees and trust in the community.
Deutsche Bank made its entrance into the world in 1870 and it was one of the first banks to adopt universal banking as it promoted and facilitated trade relations between Germany and other overseas markets. Deutsche Bank acquired smaller banks in Germany in order to be the most prominent bank in their home base in addition to having a global reach.
