Royal Decision Making

DID YOU KNOW…


…that in the 1800s, policy decisions for
El Banco Español Filipino, the first bank in the Philippines, had to go all the way up to the royal authorities in Spain?
.
…that even the decision to establish the first branch of the bank was contained in a royal order issued in 1896 by the Spanish central government?
.
…that the royal order specified that only when its capital had reached P2 million could the bank consider putting up additional branches in the Philippines?
.
…that as soon as the bank was granted a second extension of its corporate life in 1896, it had to take on the added responsibility of assisting the insular government with interest-free loans of up to P500,000, which was a fortune at that time?
.

…that the bank's financial accommodation for the government was limited to a period of not more than six months each calendar year?
