1878 - Close Brothers Merchant Bank founded

Close Brothers merchant bank was formed by William Brooks Close and his two brothers who successfully bought and leased farmland in the American mid-west. In 1897, spotting the opportunity that came with the gold rush for transport to remote regions of Canada and Alaska the Close Brothers bought the right to build a railway into the Yukon. The success of that venture provided the foundations for their development into a major merchant bank.
