Famous Bankers - List of Famous Bankers

Business people in the banking sector include the individuals who either solely or jointly with partners form a private bank. Banks are the financial institutions that accept deposits from customers, pay interest and provide other financial services like loans and mortgages to them. Banks play a vital role in the financial system and economy of a country, and are therefore highly regulated by the governments. Even the owners of the private banks need to adhere to the governmental policies regulating banks. Business people wanting to start banks have to possess business acumen along with a strong base in finance and have to have a deep knowledge and understanding of the various laws and regulations governing the banking sector.
