Wealth Management: Investment Views – The rise of private markets: Foreword

William Haggard, William Therlin, Amaya Gutiérrez, Raphaela Schröder and Andreas Doepfert, Wealth Management

The Rothschild family has invested in private markets for generations, shaping the modern world.

The family's tangible track record stretches back to the opening of France's first passenger railway in 1837 and the development of its first mainline railway: Chemin de fer du Nord in 1846. Subsequent Rothschild generations built on the family's experience in private markets, helping to finance any number of iconic infrastructure projects, including canals connecting the Rhine and Danube basins and later the Mediterranean and Red seas via the Suez Canal.

In the 20thcentury, the family's private market ventures helped build the New York Subway and London Underground in the 1920s and 30s whilst investing and developing formidable wine businesses from Château Mouton and Lafite estates in France and later in Chile.

The story of the Rothschild family and its experience in private markets is rich and varied and serves to illustrate our long-term commitment to help you navigate and successfully manage your investments in this asset class.

Featuring an interview with our private markets specialists, this publication sets out the various opportunities which exist for investors within private markets. Our aim is to answer why you should invest in private markets and how we can help you achieve this goal at Rothschild & Co.

We look forward to working with you.

Dr. Carlos Mejía
CIO, Rothschild & Co Bank AG
