Management of the archive

The Baring Archive is one of the finest archives of a financial institution anywhere in the world. This website provides an introduction to the organisation and content of the Archive and will enable casual enquirers, historians and researchers to begin to see and understand the wealth of material that is held in the Archive.

The Baring Archive is owned by ING, which acquired Barings in 1995. In 2008 The Baring Archive, together with the associated historical portraits, was loaned to The Baring Archive Limited, a charitable company established by ING to manage the collections and encourage their use as an educational resource.

The archive is located at ING's London office and is managed by ING's Art and Archives team based within Corporate Communications.

The Trustees of The Baring Archive Limited meet twice a year.
