  • The Venetian Senate starts consolidating all of the city's outstanding debt into a single fund, later known as the Monte Vecchio. The holders of the newly created prestiti are promised a 5% annual coupon. These claims can be sold and quickly (before 1320) give rise to the first recorded secondary market for financial assets in medieval Europe.[1]
