Merchant Banking Merchant Banking In this sectionMerchant BankingCorporate Private EquityMulti StrategiesDirect LendingCredit ManagementResponsibilityOur teams Merchant Banking is the investment arm of Rothschild & Co.It deploys the firm's capital, alongside that of a select set of leading institutional and private investors. With global commitments in excess of €11 billion, 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 two centuries - particularly for backing entrepreneurs who the family felt were ahead of their times.At Merchant Banking we celebrate this legacy. So much so that a passion for investing 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 significant amounts 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.
