What line of business were Ebeneezer Scrooge and Jacob Marley engaged in?

They owned seats on the London Stock Exchange, so today, we'd call them stock and commodity brokers. Scrooge also put some money on the street (loan sharking), as there were no regulations on lending back then. Remember the couple who stop him on the street to beg for some time to repay their loan? Scrooge, of course, refuses them any leeway.

It is usually assumed that he is a banker or professional money lender

I think it's money lending / debt collecting.
