    Jennifer Yu remains Chairman of Rothschild Global Advisory in the region

    Rothschild Global Advisory (RGA), part of the Rothschild & Co Group, has appointed Elizabeth
    Wang to become Head of Rothschild Global Advisory in Greater China, leading the office in that
    region and advising clients on their financial and strategic transactions

    Elizabeth has deep experience in Investment Banking with over 20 years working in the industry,
    most recently as Managing Director and Head of Hong Kong at Morgan Stanley. Prior to this, she
    was Managing Director and Head of Asia, Consumer and Retail at UBS, following a move from
    London to Hong Kong to join Goldman Sachs in 2000. In 2015, Elizabeth was recognised as one of
    the Leading Women in Investment Banking by The Women's Foundation

    Jennifer Yu, who has been successfully running the Global Advisory business in Greater China for
    11 years, will increase her focus on the Group's investment business. She will retain her role as
    non-executive Chairman of Rothschild in Greater China. Kelvin Chau will continue as Executive
    Vice Chairman of Wealth Management and Global Advisory in Hong Kong.

    Commenting on the announcement, Robert Leitão, Managing Partner at Rothschild & Co, said, “I
    would like to thank Jennifer for her strong management of the Global Advisory business in Greater
    China. During her leadership, we have advised on a number of the most notable cross-border
    transactions involving Chinese entities and are now the leading adviser to Chinese companies
    investing in Europe.

    He continued, “We are very pleased to welcome Elizabeth to Rothschild. Elizabeth's experience in
    M&A and in developing and leading Investment Banking businesses will be a great addition to the
    Group. We believe that she will contribute significantly to the efforts of our senior bankers in China
    and around the world to continue to develop Rothschild's strategically important Greater China
    business.

    RGA has direct access to Greater China's markets through its locally based teams, including senior
    Chinese bankers. It commands an in-depth knowledge of the region's economic development and
    the challenges facing its industries, and has developed an exceptional understanding of the local
    regulatory and market environment. The team is particularly skilled at bridging the cultural gaps that
    can exist between the managements of foreign and local companies

    Elizabeth commented, “Joining Rothschild is an exciting challenge for me and I look forward to be
    part of an organisation which has a strong reputation as one of the leaders in its field. I am keen to
    build on the firm's strong success in the Asia region.
