    and corporate banking businesses both producing record revenues The bank according to Timesonline reported a 31 459 million euro improvement in profits In addition record results from the organization s advisory and private banking operations enabled the bank to pay record bonuses to its 2 700 people in June The bank s chairman Davide de Rothschild following unconventional investment banking strategies has steered his organization clear of proprietary trading prime broking and other activities that have devastated rivals as a result of an environment where asset prices keep falling while liabilities remain fixed The bank however still wrote off 96 million euro because of souring loans At some point considering the global financial system is galloping off a cliff today s difficulties in investment banking will prompt an overhaul of the system favoring those players that have shown themselves to be the most cautious during this cycle Alongside its pro forma group wide results Rothschild also unveiled that it had entered into a co operation agreement in the field of M A and Equity Capital Markets advisory in the food and agriculture sectors on a global basis with Netherlands Rabobank a premier global financial institution providing financing and other services

  • Nat Rothschild loses libel action against Daily Mail
    claim that Rothschild s conduct was inappropriate the judge said In my judgment that conduct foreseeably brought Lord Mandelson s public office and personal integrity into disrepute and exposed him to accusations of conflict of interest and it gave rise to the reasonable grounds to suspect that Lord Mandelson had engaged in improper discussions with Mr Deripaska about aluminium A spokesman for the Daily Mail said We are pleased with Mr Justice Tugendhat s judgment which vindicates our reporting of this story He concluded rightly that Mr Rothschild placed the reputation of his friend Mr Mandelson then the European trade commissioner at risk by inviting him to meet Mr Deripaska in Russia Mr Justice Tugendhat accepted Mr Rothschild s conduct had been inappropriate in a number of respects and had brought Lord Mandelson s public office and personal integrity into disrepute and exposed him to accusations of conflict of interest This case is a reminder at a time when newspapers are under attack for invading privacy that the rich and powerful regularly use the law to prevent legitimate scrutiny of their activities Had the Mail lost this case it could have incurred costs of more than 1m Not many news organisations however committed they are to free speech can afford to risk a loss of that magnitude As Lord Justice Leveson s inquiry considers the balance between privacy and freedom of expression the chilling effect on free speech that court cases like this one exert needs to be borne in mind Rothschild said after Friday s judgment I am disappointed with today s ruling although I do not regret bringing the action I brought this action seeking an apology for the Daily Mail s utterly false claim that I had arranged for Lord Mandelson to attend a dinner in Moscow to close a deal between Alcoa and Rusal and that this had caused the loss of 300 British jobs Rothschild added The truth is as the Daily Mail has now accepted that I had nothing whatsoever to do with this deal and that it had in any event been completed before Lord Mandelson and I even arrived in Moscow Lord Mandelson s trip to Russia was entirely recreational as the court has accepted and Lord Mandelson had obtained clearance for the trip from his office before undertaking it Andrew Caldecott QC for Associated Newspapers said during the trial that the defence of the Daily Mail s story should succeed as it was clear beyond doubt that the article meant there was a wider malaise Caldecott added that Rothschild fostered a relationship between Mandelson and Deripaska that endangered the dignity and reputation of the then EU commissioner It is way beyond the norm for a Russian oligarch to be flying the trade commissioner who he does not know well at the time to fly him in his private jet to his private chalet to be wined and dined by him he told the high court It creates the perception that Lord
