The Albuquerque National Bank is the largest bank in the State of New Mexico, and the oldest in the city of Albuquerque. Its record over the past thirty-five years has been markedly successful. It is to be hoped that this narration of a portion of that record will be of some use transversing the same ground.
In addition to a narration, this paper will attempt to prove a thesis. The thesis is this: with proper supervision, the investment account of a commercial bank not only provides a bulwark against the depreciation of assets in a time of crisis, but more than that, the investment program with proper goals and methods implementing the historically defined and proven policies of an aware management, can be a completely flexible asset, available at all times for a variety of uses.
