Hubert Bonin is professor emeritus and researcher in economic history at Sciences Po Bordeaux at the UMR CNRS 5113 GRETHA-Bordeaux University. He is a specialist in banking history (with a programme reconstructing the history of the General Society between 1864 and 1945 and another on the Farm Credit between 1951 and 2001) and financial history (factoring, asset management, investment banking, wealth management banking). He is also an expert on the history of businesses and tertiary organizations, on entrepreneurship and business, and on the ultramarine banking and business–always by linking French history to European and international movements and networks. He also studies the deployment of French banks and companies in the former Chinese concessions.

Its field of study also covers globalization, from History to the present time: banking geopolitics, the internationalization of banks, French maritime competitiveness, history of intercontinental logistics flows.
