The Baring Archive at the Museum of American Finance, NY

The Baring Archive is delighted to announce the opening of "Barings in America: An Interactive Investment Experience" at the Museum of American Finance in New York.

"Barings in America" will provide engaging details about Barings' significant US investments and their contributions to the growth of the nation and its industry. Designed as an investment game with a mobile component, visitors will be invited to participate in five of the bank's American investments. With unprecedented access to The Baring Archive, visitors will utilize the same documents used by Barings to evaluate each historic investment. Based on information provided in the exhibit, the visitors will decide whether to invest in each venture and compete against the investment performance of other visitors and the bank.

ING US is the lead sponsor of this exhibit. Associate sponsors include Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Citi, Ernst & Young and Sullivan & Cromwell LLP. "Barings in America" will be on show until April 27, 2013.
