Protect and grow your wealth

Our private banking activity takes a global view of your assets. The Rothschilds have been bankers and entrepreneurs for seven generations. They know how important it is to protect, grow and pass on a family’s assets and values to the next generation. However, wealth management also requires innovation and expertise.

    All of our wealth management advisors develop long-term, in-depth relationships with their clients. Your advisor is always available to answer any questions and find the best solutions to suit your needs. We are a bank with a human scale. This gives us flexibility and allows us to provide you with tailor-made solutions.

Our team members are all leading experts in their sector.

  • A highly innovative approach to grow your assets in combination with a well-managed risk

    Edmond de Rothschild staff are renowned for their agility and ability to innovate. They were alternative multi-management pioneers in 1969 and have launched many additional significant initiatives since then, for instance in private equity and infrastructure investment. In order to enhance your wealth, we offer creative solutions while paying close attention to the analysis and management of risk, both on financial and personal levels.

  • A strong family commitment, the guarantee of our independence and a sign of our focus on future generations

    As a family business, we benefit from the clear support of our shareholders. Their involvement in the bank's management was further reinforced with the appointment of Ariane de Rothschild as Chairwoman of the Group's Executive Committee in 2015. This commitment is key to our independence, an essential component of our long-term approach.

    We are very aware that succession is a critical time for every family. We help heirs prepare for the future. Taking our cue from the Rothschild family's history, we provide support to enable them to anticipate the challenges and responsibilities they will inherit.
