“Unity, Integrity, Industry” - a modern bank with a long family history
For hundreds of years, the Rothschild name has been synonymous with great financial power. The dynasty began in the 18th century with Mayer Rothschild, who set up a finance house in Frankfurt. His 5 sons went into business in each of Europe’s major financial capital cities. The family’s coat of arms contains five arrows clenched in a fist, symbolising this first generation of the Rothschild dynasty.
Over the years the Rothschilds grew wealthier and wealthier as the first truly international banking house. While many financiers were ruined by localised uprisings and greedy monarchs, the Rothschilds’ main wealth lay in global financial instruments like stocks, bonds and debts. No mob could rob them, and no poverty-stricken government could impound their riches. As a contemporary American newspaper observed, “the Rothschilds govern a Christian world. Not a cabinet moves without their advice."
La Compagnie Financiere Edmond de Rothschild
Paris has long been a seat of a Rothschild dynasty, and in 1953 Baron Edmond Adolphe de Rothschild formed the “Compagnie Financiere” that still bears his name. 12 years later he bought out a Swiss private banking practice in Geneva, and opened the first Luxembourg office just 3 years later. Today’s Edmond de Rothschild private bank is dedicated to offering high-quality personal wealth management services, alongside asset management and other financial support.
High-quality private banking services are a key cornerstone of the Edmond de Rothschild offerings. This bank couples strategic-level wealth planning to a highly flexible range of financial services. This enables clients to seize opportunities as they arise, with access to bespoke funding solutions directly from Edmond de Rothschild itself.
Asset Management Services
Edmond de Rothschild’s traditional expertise lies in equities management. This is conducted by senior wealth managers who have a huge amount of experience to draw on. This sets Edmond de Rothschild apart from many other asset management providers who rely on benchmarks.
Edmond de Rothschild equities are available in very distinct products that differ significantly from standard market portfolios. Other asset management services include asset allocation and sovereign debt, corporate debt, overlay management and socially responsible investing.
