1945 - 1980 :
Recovery in post-War Europe was slow.
But by the 1960s, the wheels were turning again.

Many of the great houses and collections were now in public hands, in some cases given, in others seized. Business, now focused in London and Paris, had to be regenerated.

In the 1960s new avenues were explored. Together, the British and French banks committed themselves to further developing a new operation in the U.S.A. which was eventually to become Rothschild Inc.

In London, N M Rothschild & Sons took an early role in the new Eurobond markets and developed its role in the field of asset management, a role which would expand internationally in the 1980s.

A new force in Rothschild finance was born with the creation by Edmond de Rothschild in 1963 of the Swiss-based La Compagnie Financière Edmond de Rothschild (LCF).

From its beginnings as a venture capital house, this was soon to expand into a fully fledged investment bank and asset management company, with a range of affiliates.

The acquisition of the "Banque Privée" (Geneva) will reinforce the developpement of the LCF Rothschild Group in the field of private banking.

« Singly the five arrows of the Rothschild coat of arms may be broken.
Together they will endure. »
