With global commitments in excess of €7 billion1, Rothschild Merchant Banking manages a series of funds dedicated to corporate and secondary private equity, multi-managers funds and co-investments as well as senior and junior credits. Our business is founded on three inter-twined principles - our passion for investing, respect for risk, and culture of partnership - all of which define who we are today. Passion for investing Read More The Rothschild family has an investing history dating back more than a couple of centuries - particularly for backing entrepreneurs who the family felt were ahead of their times.At Rothschild Merchant Banking we celebrate this legacy and passion for investing. So much so that it is the single most important attribute we seek in our people. And we expend significant energy in ensuring that it remains the heart of our culture. Respect for risk Read More Our investing ethos is centered on delivering attractive risk-adjusted returns to our investors. We are convinced that this is the only way to consistently create long term value. This approach is borne out of a long-held Rothschild & Co philosophy of wealth preservation through active avoidance of capital impairment.Respect for risk does not mean we shun it - rather this mindset reflects the importance we attach to a proper understanding, quantification and pricing of risk. Culture of partnership Read More We aim to form close, enduring relationships with each of our stakeholders: our investors, our managers, our people, our advisers and financiers, and broadly the environment in which we work. We invest large chunks of capital alongside our investors in each of our funds. We actively encourage our managers to invest alongside us in the companies they run - and make it profitable and easy for them to do so. And we do the same for each of our investing professionals.By ensuring that we all "put our money where our mouth is", we hope to create a close knit ecosystem where all of our interests are fully aligned. Our aspiration is to have a culture of partnership with a shared sense of purpose and level of collaboration in every important decision we make. Responsible investing Read More In 2012 Five Arrows Managers decided to adhere to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (“UN PRI”) in order to formalise its commitment to Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) issues. We have also committed to the Charter of the French Private Equity Association (AFIC), which focuses on growth and long-term development of companies and promotes the establishment of best practices in the areas of human capital management, environment and governance. In line with the Group's Community investment, Rothschild Merchant Banking has decided to support NGOs and social enterprises focusing on enhancing the prospects of disadvantaged young people globally through a partnership with Epic Foundation.
