Jonathan Callaway Paper Money of Scotland

22 September 2018

This is the story of Scotland’s physical money in three phases – The Past, The Present and The Future. It will illustrate how trust was won, lost, regained and (nearly) lost again.

It touches on the importance of maintaining confidence in that most basic form of finance and it will look to the future of physical money in Scotland – and globally – in an age of rapid and unpredictable change.

Jonathan Callaway has enjoyed a long career in international commercial and investment banking, including working overseas in Germany, New York and Hong Kong. On return to the UK he spent nearly 15 years at Deutsche Bank and over 10 years at Hawkpoint Partners (now Canaccord Genuity). Until recently he was also working as an independent corporate adviser on capital-raising transactions.
