Rothschild


History
In the late 1700s, Mayer Amschel Rothschild encouraged his five sons to establish banking houses across Europe. Having first settled in Manchester in the UK, Nathan Mayer Rothschild established the London office in 1809.

Mayer Amschel’s sons fulfilled their father’s vision and became the world’s most successful bankers. The family’s ventures helped create history and include: financing the British Government during the Napoleonic wars, the Gold Rush, Britain’s purchase of the Suez Canal, funding the first railways and the quest for oil.

Rothschild advised on many of the key UK privatisations of the 1980s and 1990s and more recently has advised the HM Treasury on a number of national issues, including banks and state assets. Rothschild continues to advise many of the world’s largest companies.

Today the Rothschild Group has 57 offices in 40 countries. In the UK Rothschild has 3 primary businesses: Wealth Management and Trust (the division submitting this document), Global Financial Advisory (which provides corporate advice) and Merchant Banking (a private equity investment business).

The Rothschild Group is ultimately owned and controlled by Paris Orleans SA which is listed on the Paris Stock Exchange, and majority owned and controlled by the Rothschild family.
