In 1909 at the annual dinner of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation, Sir Thomas Sutherland described the founding of the bank in Hong Kong, stating that the "good people" of Bombay had recently started a Royal Bank of China but had appropriated to themselves about three fourths of the share capital. Sutherland then went to work establishing a bank , worked up a prospectus and took it to the leading firms who all signed on as members of the provisional committee (with the exception of Jardine, Matheson), so that when the ambassador from the Bank of China arrived "he could not get anybody to take a single share in his capital; he could not discover a possible director anywhere, and . within an incredibly short space of time the Royal Bank of China was wound up in Bombay with somewhat unfortunate if not ignominious results". (Chap. 1, p24). A study of the history of the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation in the context of Asian politics, written to celebrate the 100th anniversary of its founding.
