To understand the development of financial markets in the Low Countries before the Industrial Revolution we have to look beyond the world of high finance centered around Antwerp and Amsterdam. Empirically, this is difficult, however, because primary sources on ordinary households and small-scale businesses are scarce. We try to remedy this shortcoming through an explicit focus on the demand for four key financial services: payments, loans, savings, and insurance.
