The winner of the 2015 BAC Bursary for Business History Research is Sergio Castellanos-Gamboa of Bangor University. His research project investigates the origins and long-term development of consumer credit in Britain. He will use the bursary to recoup relevant information from surviving records of the Committee of London Clearing Banks and the British Bankers Association stored at the London Metropolitan Archives. In turn the data will be used as part of his dissertation and his research will include cliometric analysis of lending practices. The award was announced by Mike Anson at the annual conference of the Association of Business Historians held in Exeter. Sergio was presented with a cheque for £1,000.
