In the U.S. in 1906, the prominent private bank Kuhn Loeb - prompted by the scandal of the Armstrong Investigation - withdrew from the boards of all non-bank corporations. This historical announcement changed the course of corporate governance, and ultimately prevented private banks from being activist shareholders in the United States.
