Edmond de Rothschild to set up merchant banking unit in London



Private banking group Edmond de Rothschild is establishing a merchant banking business in London which is set to begin operations this spring, the Financial Times reported on Monday.

The company is currently in the process of hiring a team of senior advisers for the London operation, the financial daily said on its website, citing people close to the situation.

The unit – which was given the nod by the Financial Services Authority last month – would be led by former Hawkpoint Chief Executive Richard Briance and would not directly compete with NM Rothschild, the paper said.

However, the unit – which would be called Edmond de Rothschild Private Merchant Banking – would be looking at ways to work with Lord Jacob Rothschild’s RIT Capital Partners (RCP.L), the Financial Times said.

RIT and Edmond de Rothschild last year launched a joint venture to boost their fund management and investment operations.

Edmond de Rothschild could not immediately be reached for comment outside regular businesshours.

Edmond de Rothschild is part of the Rothschild banking dynasty which has worked on some epochal deals during its history, including helping finance Britain’s war against French military leader Napoleon.


Banque Privée Edmond de Rothschild S.A. is a private bank headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. It is exclusively dedicated to wealth management for private and institutional clients. It is a part of Edmond de Rothschild Group. It is listed on the Swiss Exchange .

The bank was originally founded in 1923 under the name of Banque Privée. Mid-1960s, it was bought by Edmond Adolphe de Rothschild and incorporated in the LCF Rothschild Group (now Edmond de Rothschild Group). After the death ofEdmond Adolphe de Rothschild in 1997, his son Benjamin de Rothschild took over the management of both Banque Privée Edmond de Rothschild and Edmond de Rothschild Group.


Benjamin de Rothschild (born 30 July 1963) is a Swiss banker, the chairman of the Edmond de Rothschild Group, a private bank established by his father and owned by the family. He was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine in France, the only child of the Baron Edmond Adolphe de Rothschild, a banker, and Nadine Lhopitalier (1932-), an actress. He marriedAriane de Rothschild (née Langner) on 23 January 1999 and they have four children. He is a descendant of the (non-winemaking) French branch of the Rothschild family.

  1. Reblogged this on Johnsono ne'Blog'as.

  2. They own the world through their banks. Bunch of zionist pricks.

  3. You better take notes to follow the money …

    Bank of NY Opening Balance 9/11 – 13 B
    Bank of NY Opening Balance 9/13 – 104 B
    Bank of NY Opening Balance 9/21 – 13 B

    Bank of NY, The Fed & 9/11

    The Bank of NY and the Federal Reserve were at the center of financial irregularities following 9/11. The owner of the Bank of NY was the same man in whose secret CIA-Swiss bank account, the Iran-Contra funds were discovered in 1987. In this video Darryl Robert Schoon explains what he has found out about 9/11.

    • Will take a look for sure rev. Thanks

    • I am half way through and this stuff is dynamite!

      They names covered are amazing even back to Calvi.

      Schoon has an annoying tick but he knows his stuff back to front, he can’t stop laughing at their audacity!

  4. Unfortunately Schoon is a better author than speaker therefore I hesitated posting part one of this presentation as he really loses control and you may not have taken him seriously. But here in part one at 45:30 the focus is Illegally issued 10 year bonds due to be cleared on 9/12/2001. The bonds were issued to buy up the resources of Russia which was disintegrating. The bonds were handled by Cantor Fitzgerald the direct target of 9/11.

  5. If you are unfamiliar with Collateral Damage: U.S. Covert Operations and the Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001
    page 2 is enlightening:

    World Trade CenterThere were three major securities brokers in the World Trade Center: Cantor Fitzgerald, Eurobrokers and GarbonInter Capital. On the morning of September 11, Flight 11 hit the North Tower at 8:46 right below the floors onwhich Cantor Fitzgerald was situated. Cantor Fitzgerald was the US largest securities dealer7in the US andarguably the primary target.8Shortly after that, a massive explosion went off just under the FBI offices in the NorthTower on the 23rd floor, and Garbon Inter Capital on the 25th floor, and in the basement of Tower 1 as well. Theexplosion caused the 22ndthrough 25thfloors above to collapse into an inferno.9Fires were reported on the 22ndfloorat 8:47.10Shortly, thereafter, at 9:03, Flight 175 hit the South Tower right below the floors on which Euro Brokerswas situated. (See Chart on page 42.) In all three cases, the explosive, fiery destruction consumed the offices in theseveral floors above. At 9:37 Flight 77 hit the Pentagon, targeting one of the few offices that had been moved in thenewly remodeled section of the Pentagon: the Office of Naval Intelligence.11Agents of the Office of NavalIntelligence had been investigating the financial transactions which in this report are linked to securities beingmanaged by those security dealers in the World Trade Center that were targeted.12Fortunately, most other agencieshad not yet been moved back into the targeted section of the Pentagon. 41% of the fatalities in the Twin Towerscame from two companies that managed U.S. government securities: Cantor Fitzgerald and Eurobrokers.1331% of the 125 fatalities in the Pentagon were from the Naval Command Center that housed the Office of NavalIntelligence. 39 of 40 Office of Naval Intelligence employees died. In the vaults beneath the World Trade CenterTowers, any certificates for bonds were destroyed.14 Building 7 was evacuated somewhere between 9:00 and 9:30, depending on various claims. Fires and explosionsspontaneously began at multiple locations inside the building prior to the collapse of either Tower. This observationis critical in that the official explanation for the fire is that they started when objects from the collapsing towerscaused the fires to ignite. Witnesses leaving the building claim to have seen fires already starting, and deadbodies.15The Building ultimately was destroyed in what many unofficial observers now believe was a controlleddemolition. Building Seven housed the following agencies critical to investigation of financial crimes related to thishistory:Export-Import Bank of the US Floor 6US Secret Service Floors 9 & 10Securities and Exchange Commission Floors 11,12 &13Internal Revenue Service Floors 24 & 25CIA Floor 25Department of Defense Floor
    “All the evidence that we stored at 7 World Trade, in all our cases, went down with the building,” according toUS Secret Service Special Agent David Curran — the number three guy in that office. “We lost our network, welost all our computers, we lost all the equipment that we use as Secret Service Agents. Everything from machineguns to our shotguns to our electronic equipment that we use.” A lot of cases had to be closed as a result of losing that building.”16 (See note for additional references.) In the midst of all this, Building 6 was destroyed by explosions from within, before being buried in the rubble of theTowers.17FEMA, the agency charged with investigating the disaster, did not collect any data on this building.Building 6 was home to the U.S. Customs agency and the El Dorado Task force, an interagency money-launderinggroup from 55 agencies created in 1992. The El Dorado Task force was responsible for coordinating all majormoney-laundering investigations in the U.S. In the immediate aftermath of September 11, these groups would beredirected to investigate terrorist financing.18On the same day, the Securities and Exchange Commission declared anational emergency and for the first time in U.S. history invoked its emergency powers under Securities ExchangeAct Section 12(k) and eased regulatory restrictions for clearing and settling security trades for the next 15 days.These changes would allow an estimated $240 billion in covert government securities to be cleared upon maturitywithout the standard regulatory controls around identification of ownership.19(The manner in which this wasaccomplished is explained later in the report.)

  6. Are you ready for Part 2 ?

    Collateral Damage Part 2: The Subprime Crisis and the Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001
    On September 11, 2001, the New York Federal Reserve Bank, and the Bank of New
    York, allowed the release of 10 year gold backed securities held by Cantor-Fitzgerald,
    and they were cleared by the Bank of New York.91 The release of these notes created the
    liquidity which resulted in the rapid expansion of the subprime market. The gold
    providing the backing for those bonds was distributed amongst the bullion banks which
    were the beneficiaries of the initial dispersal of the Yamashita/Marcos/Black Eagle gold,
    and it would be appropriate to speculate that the proceeds from settling the 9/11 notes
    were added to their respective capital reserves through a daisy chain of paper running
    through Goldman Sachs. ….
    The corroborating evidence for these claims is extensive, and moreover suggests that
    securities from the $240 Billion covert war were ‘settled’ in the aftermath of
    September11th, 2001 tragedy. This meant that $240 billion jumped from the off-balance
    sheet accounts to the balance sheets of their respective holding banks, and had a major
    impact on the money supply. Since that event, a chain reaction has contributed to an
    economic crisis that has stripped corporations and investment funds (read as retirement
    and saving plans) of trillions of dollars, and brought global economic growth to a
    standstill. ….
