From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Andries Pels (2 September 1655, in Amsterdam – 8 February 1731) was a rich Dutch banker and insurer from Amsterdam.[1][2] He was the banker of France in the era of John Law.[1] He was nephew of his namesake, poet Andries Pels,[1] and cousin to the colonial governor Paulus van der Veen. In 1742 his widow, Angenita Pels-Bouwens (1660–1749), was the richest woman in Amsterdam, living at the Golden Bend.[citation needed]

Pels formed the partnership Andries Pels & Soonen, dealing in luxury goods, insurance, and currency, in 1707 that lasted until 1774.[1][2] Both his sons died in 1741. His daughter Johanna Sara Pels married Jan Bernd Bicker in 1720. Their sons Henric en Jan Bernd Bicker managed the bank from 1755? In 1771 Jan Bernd Bicker became a member of the board. In 1773 the bank Pels & Zoonen became insolvent.
