Edinburgh Stock Exchange
The Edinburgh Stock Exchange was established in 1844. A rival Edinburgh and Leith Commercial and Stock Exchange was founded in 1845, and the two bodies merged in 1856.
In 1964, the Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee stock exchanges came together to form the Scottish Stock Exchange, while still continuing to trade locally in each city. The Scottish Stock Exchange was closed in 1971, resulting in the closure of the Edinburgh Stock Exchange offices.
More than three-quarters of Scottish bank shares were traded at the Edinburgh exchange, although the Bank of Scotland, the Caledonian Bank and the City of Glasgow Bank were also listed at other Scottish exchanges.
