The paper gives an overview on the birth of financial geography as an established subdiscipline of Earth Sciences and introduces the main topical issues in financial geographical research. It highlights the decisive role of geographical distance in accessing soft and confidential information and shows that, by the same token, from greater distances only hard and public information is accessible. The A. examines the main factors of spatial concentration and deconcentration (dispersions) of financial markets. He argues, that the fragmentation involved in the trans-nationalisation of financial activities does not affect the controlling-power positions of traditional financial centres. The last part of the paper examines the role of the spatial distribution of financial institutions in geographical disparities and their role in economic development. - (AM)
