UK and Ireland
Rothschild has been at the forefront of the financial landscape in the United Kingdom and Ireland for the past 200 years.
Our intellectual strength and the depth of our experience have earned us the trust of many leading corporations.
With the largest team of advisory bankers in the UK, Rothschild has consistently advised on more UK M&A deals than any other adviser. Our debt and equity advisory bankers were among the first to offer these services in the UK and, together with the restructuring team, are at the top of their markets.
Our strong track record in large, medium and smaller transactions, and our enduring relationships with a wide range of loyal clients, distinguishes Rothschild from other advisory firms. We have forged long and close relationships with the UK and Irish governments, spanning from historic government bond writing through to the privatisation programmes of the 1980s and the turbulent markets of today.
London is one of the major hubs, along with Paris, of our global and cross-border activities. Our advisory bankers in London collaborate with our substantial locally based teams to provide expert, tailored advice to our clients.
Rothschild is the only global financial advisory firm that has offices outside London offering a full range of international financial advice to regional clients. We have been present in Manchester for 45 years, in Leeds since 1996, and in Birmingham since 2001.
Our regional team is distinguished by the combination of experience, local expertise and knowledge of UK regional markets alongside access to Rothschild’s intellectual capital and global network of contacts and industry sector specialists.
Our recent notable assignments include the bid defence of Carlsberg and Heineken’s offers for Scottish & Newcastle, the sale of British Energy to EDF and the sale of Pets at Home, the IPOs of Amadeus and Rusal, and advice to the Irish Government on the restructuring and recapitalisation of the domestic banking sector.
