Our Values

The values that drive us

Concordia, Integritas, Industria

In its financial activities, the Edmond de Rothschild Group promotes the values that have forged the reputation of the Rothschilds for 250 years. Our values are based on the three guiding principles of the Rothschild family’s historical motto: “Concordia (Harmony), Integritas (Integrity), Industria (Industry)”.


Building bonds of trust

Within the Edmond de Rothschild Group, “Concordia” inspires unity and harmony in the diversity, balance of strength, and the longevity of the company linked to the Rothschild family. It signifies a willingness to work together to achieve a common goal.

Our teams embody this fundamental value, broken down in human qualities: generosity, commitment, team spirit, and a sense of community.

The principle of “Concordia” also guides our relationship with our customers, whom we advise and support in the long term, often over several generations, by ensuring confidence and proximity.

" In our Group, responsibility is more than a lofty goal or a token word. It is part of our DNA, our adrenaline. And it underlies a sincere, deeply held and shared determination to prepare the future for forthcoming generations – starting today."
Ariane de Rothschild

Acting responsibly

Completely in line with the major philanthropic projects supported by the Rothschild family, “Integritas” commits us to maintaining an ethical relationship to wealth.

We are committed to moral, sustainable finance: generosity, accountability, working for the common good and passing on these values to future generations; acting under the most demanding principles of social and environmental responsibility.

This commitment remains at the heart of our relationship with our clients : transparency, active family shareholders, information on risks, protection of interests, honesty, and respect for the individual.

" Ethics involves mutual respect for labour and capital, without which the system is torn apart."
Benjamin de Rothschild

Achieving excellence

By highlighting the notion of “Industria”, the Rothschild family incorporates an essential dimension of the spirit of capitalism: the sense of initiative, combined with diligence and competence within a profession.

For us, success is built over the long term, with prudence and action, by combining a zealous work ethic and an ongoing search for innovative financial solutions. 

" There can be no respect for clients or employees without respect for the trade that we ply, which those playing fast and loose with finance levers thought they could ignore."
Ariane de Rothschild
