Edmond de Rothschild Group

The French Rothschild family in Switzerland created a substantial financial business concern, which continues to the present day under the Edmond de Rothschild Group. Formerly named the LCF Rothschild Group, the Edmond de Rothschild Group is a private Swiss banking group, established by Edmond de Rothschild (1926-1997), in 1953. It describes itself as an independent, traditional, family-owned business, based in Paris, Geneva and Luxembourg, with interests in private banking, asset management, private equity, institutional and fund services and corporate finance.

Following the death of his father in 1997, Benjamin de Rothschild (1963-2021) became the president of the Swiss banking group La Compagnie Financière Edmond de Rothschild (the LCF Rothschild Group), which his father founded in 1953.

In 2009, Benjamin's wife, Ariane de Rothschild became the Vice-President of La Compagnie Financière Edmond de Rothschild. In 2010, La Compagnie Financière Edmond de Rothschild (LCF) changed its name to Edmond de Rothschild Group, and in 2015, Ariane de Rothschild became CEO of the Edmond de Rothschild Group. The group also includes the lifestyle label Edmond de Rothschild Heritage (fine wine and cheese, luxury hotels and restaurants).

Based in Geneva, the Edmond de Rothschild Group remains family-owned and independent, and is a separate business to that of Rothschild & Co.
