Stock Photo - Views from the World Finance Tower, Shanghai, ChinaCityscape, view of Huangpu River, The Bund, Puxi, and financial city, Shanghai, China. The word ""bund"" means an embankment or an embanked quay ... . The word comes from the Persian word band, through Hindustani, meaning an embankment, levee or dam (a cognate of English terms ""bind"", ""bond"" and ""band"", and the German word ""Bund"", etc.). It is thus named after the bunds/levees in Baghdad along the Tigris, when the Baghdadi Jews such as the prominent Sassoon family settled their business in Shanghai in the 19th century and built heavily on the bund on the Huangpo. In these Chinese port cities, the English term came to mean, especially, the embanked quay along the shore. In English, ""Bund"" is pronounced to rhyme with ""fund"".
