Rothschild sets up partnership to unite British and French units

Eiffel Tower

Rothschild, the 202-year-old investment bank, has set up a partnership for 48 of its most senior bankers as the final step of a drawn-out process to unite its French and British branches.

The Daily Telegraph reports that although membership of the international partnership will come with no voting rights – which are held by the Rothschild family – it will allow for enhanced remuneration.

London-based bankers within the partnership are believed to include Robert Leitão, the bank’s most senior M&A banker in London, and Olivier Pécoux, head of its global financial advisory arm.

Work on the partnership began last April, but no details have emerged until now. It follows a move in April 2012 to unite the French and the British parts of the bank. Rothschild & Cie Banque and Rothschild Continuation Holdings were combined under Rothschild Group, which is owned by Paris Orléans et Cie, France.
