This is in a company's Articles of Association. i don't understand why it is "sur" les banquiers etc.

ARTICLE 24 – SIGNATURE SOCIALE

bank money order?
Explanation:
Hi,

From what I've found the 'mandat sur ___' seems to be a standard legal phrase for an order to pay x amount of money to the designated party (here the bankers). In the link I provide, see definition #5 under Mandat. I'm not sure on the translation however. Something along the lines of a bank money order, perhaps? Anyways, I hope this helps.
