Gulian Verplanck (February 10, 1751 - November 20, 1799) was an American banker and politician.


He was the youngest of the six children of Gulian Verplanck (1698-1751) and Mary Crommelin Verplanck. After graduating from King's College (now Columbia University) in 1768, he went to Holland to acquire practical experience in mercantile and banking procedures by working at his uncle's firm, Daniel Crommelin and Sons.

In 1784 he married Cornelia Johnston. They lived in New York with their seven children in the vicinity of Riverside Drive and 123rd Street.

He was a Federalist member from New York County of the New York State Assembly, and was Speaker in 1789-90 and 1796-97. He became President of the Bank of New York and in 1792 helped found the Tontine Association, a precursor of the New York Stock Exchange.

He was an uncle of Daniel C. Verplanck and great-uncle of Gulian Crommelin Verplanck.
