Description:

Edward Baring, 1st Lord Revelstoke (1828-1897) by Rudolf Lehmann (1851-1893)

Edward Baring joined the partnership in 1856. He was hard-working but could be reckless. Under his leadership, Barings began to take more risks in some aspects of its work. By the end of 1890, the firm was in the grip of a crisis and was forced to turn to the Bank of England to avoid liquidation.
