    1. Introduction to the Rothschild family

A 200-year legacy in European finance
   The name of Rothschild originates from the financial history of the XVIII century when Mayer Amschel Rothschild was managing
    the fortune of the Elector of Hesse.
   His five sons, who symbolise the arrows in the family emblem, were to establish the first European banking network throughout
    Europe, from Paris, London, Frankfurt, Vienna and Naples.
   In 1817 therefore, James de Rothschild moved to Paris while his older brother Nathan Mayer Rothschild settled in London.
   During the XIXth century, the Rothschilds established themselves as the key bankers to royal families and European governments,
    taking up the challenges of the rapid economic growth of Europe and the world at that time.
   The Rothschilds are men of passions as evidenced by an on-going involvement as sponsors of arts. Their passion for wine-
    growing, illustrated by the acquisition of Château Lafite estate in 1860, is only a mere reflection of their refinement.

20 years of sustained growth of its investment banking activities
   While NM Rothschild & Sons in London underwent a rapid expansion of its activities due to UK’s economic liberalization and
    privatization in the 1980s, the French house was re-launched by Baron David de Rothschild in 1984 after its nationalization in
    1982. In 1986, the bank in France recovered its original name.
   Under the leadership of David de Rothschild, the bank underwent a long period of constant expansion and growth of its activities,
    leading it to the first top places in league tables in France, in the UK and in several major financial centers in Europe. In 2004,
    Rothschild was awarded UK and French M&A House of the year; in 2005, Rothschild was awarded UK, French and European
    M&A House of the year.
   Following years of increasing collaboration between Evelyn and David de Rothschild, the Rothschild’s houses of London and Paris
    were finally reunited to form the Rothschild Group under the chairmanship of Baron David.
   Rothschild has today an outstanding position in European investment banking, with an increasingly growing network of offices
    worldwide including Eastern Europe, Mediterranean rim, Asia, Latin America.
   Rothschild’s bankers are united around the constant traditional family values and ethics of Concordia, Integritas, Industria (Unity,
    Integrity, Diligence) which have remained Rothschild’s motto until today.
