Following criticism of the Scottish Financial Institutions and their contribution to the Scottish economy, the Fraser of Allander Institute asked Mr James Scott, the Executive Director of Scottish Financial Enterprise to address the inaugural Mowlem Scotland Lecture at the University of Strathclyde Graduate Business School on 31 March 1993. The lecture, sponsored by the construction company Mowlem Scotland Limited, was devised to provide a new forum for promoting discussion of issues confronting the Scottish economy. In all, seventy leading figures from Scottish business, the institutions, politics and the media were invited to listen to Mr Scott and participate in any subsequent debate. This article is the text of the Mowlem lecture on, "The role of the Scottish financial sector", given by Mr James Scott.
