In keeping with the family values, "Concordia, Industria and Integritas", Rothschild & Co and Edmond de Rothschild have reached an agreement on the use of their respective brands in order to continue growing their businesses and their customers.
As part of this agreement, the Edmond de Rothschild Group will continue to develop its business under the Edmond de Rothschild brand. The Rothschild & Co Group will use the name Rothschild & Co, adopted as a company name since 2015. Rothschild Martin Maurel will be used to identify the private banking and asset management activities of Rothschild & Co from France, Belgium and Monaco. Neither group may use the name Rothschild on its own in any form whatsoever in the future.
The two groups have also agreed to work together to protect the family name in the banking sector. They are thereby putting a definitive end to the litigation between them, before the Tribunal de Grande Instance in Paris.
In addition, the two groups will unwind all of their cross-shareholdings.
