Established,

With a modern twist

Founded in Edinburgh in 1983 by a group of influential Scottish business people, we remain committed to the core values of a traditional Scottish banking service. Providing a personal service to our clients is at the core of everything. Our online, mobile and telephone services extend our coverage and give our clients 24 hour banking, wherever they are.

A link

with the past

Edinburgh is widely regarded as the birthplace of Scottish Enlightenment. In 1776 Adam Smith revolutionised economic theory with the publication of ‘An inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations’. Adam & Company was named after this prominent economist, reflecting our commitment to the spirit of Enlightenment.

    The rises and falls of the olympic games For the small number of athletes that make it, the numerous years of self-improvement provide a sense of personal return most of us can’t even fathom. Yet, through an economic lens, when one considers and compares the returns, the story tends to be mixed. The results of the Olympics from this point of view are, therefore, like the events themselves - unpredictable, and only known ‘after the race is run’.
