Share your memories

We need photographs that illustrate our business and customers between 1975 and today.
Do you have any photos of our Singapore trading desk in the 1980’s? Or pictures of key milestones from other markets in our recent history? If so, we’d love to see them. Email our History team, with details and any images you have.

The good, the bad, and the rather unusual...

Since 2011, we’ve catalogued over 334 metres of archives, conducted more than 100 interviews with staff, alumni and pensioners, and unearthed over 3,500 photos.

See the highlights from the journey so far:
