The Foundation for Economic History Research within Banking and Enterprise compiles, organizes and administers records that originate from Stockholms Enskilda Bank (1856-1971), foundations like the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, the Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation and the Marcus and Amalia Wallenberg Foundation and the associated investment company Investor with subsidiaries.

Family Members in the Management of the Bank

The Foundation also keeps records related to family members active in the management of the bank or executive board members: André Oscar Wallenberg, Jacob Agathon Wallenberg, Knut Agathon Wallenberg, Gustaf Oscar Wallenberg, Marcus Wallenberg sr, Oscar Wallenberg, Axel Wallenberg, Jacob Wallenberg, Marcus Wallenberg, Marc Wallenberg jr and Peter Wallenberg.

The Foundation keeps no records related to Raoul Wallenberg.

A Large Number of Records

The records are housed outside the city center of Stockholm in what used to be the stable at the former summer house of Knut and Alice Wallenberg. The Foundation keeps 2 000 linear meters of records. Two large digitizing projects have been initiated, one project concerning Investor has been completed, and one concerning Stockholms Enskilda Bank is on-going. These projects have so far generated 5 million documents.
