Swiss Rothschild arm targets London in £2bn assets push

Swiss Rothschild arm targets London in £2bn assets push

La Compagnie Benjamin de Rothschild, the Geneva arm of the private Swiss banking Group Edmond de Rothschild, has branched out into London as part of its plan to boost assets to £2 billion.

The London hub comprises a team of six led by Charles Goodman, who was previously in charge of La Compagnie Benjamin de Rothschild's (CBR) institutional business in Geneva.

The firm already manages around £1.1 billion in London, which represents business that has been transferred from elsewhere but also includes new clients acquired via its UK base.

CBR aims to manage close to £2 billion by the end of 2013 and boost its team to around 10 through local hires.
