The Scottish investment trust industry and its related companies has a history that goes back to the 1870s and touches all corners of the world. It is an example of the Scottish genius for working in the financial sector and shows directly how a small country on the edge of the Atlantic could have a significant impact on such diverse areas as post-Civil War America and the Far East. It offers the story of how small investors could combine to support the greatest, most cutting edge industries that would change the world forever, as well as offering opportunities for the smallest businesses and farms across the world to take root and grow. The study of this industry and its people offer an example of an entrepreneurship that was the offspring of centuries of knowledge and understanding of business and the ancestor of Scotland's contemporary standing as a financial centre on the world stage.
