Rothschild & Cie Banque

Following nationalisation of the historic French Rothschild business, the French Rothschild family began again, creating a number of new business ventures, once again bearing the Rothschild name.

In October 1986, the Rothschild cousins were granted the right to use family name again, as Rothschild & Associés Banque. Rothschild & Associés Banque was created 1986, with the new partners David and Eric de Rothschild. The partners had considered renaming the bank back to de Rothschild Frères, but the name adopted was Rothschild & Associés, then becoming Rothschild & Cie. The business focus was on asset management and corporate finance. It was capitalized at $1 million and started with just three employees.
