Benjamin de Rothschild was born on July 30, 1963, and father of four daughters, with whom he had a wife, Ariane, the international financial expert who was entrusted with chairing the group in 2015.

The Geneva-based Franco-Swiss group specializes in private banking and asset management and has nothing to do with the Franco-British investment bank Rothschild & Co.

The group's assets are valued at 173 billion Swiss francs ($ 164 billion).

The group, which was founded in 1953, today includes 2,600 employees in 32 branches around the world.

Benjamin de Rothschild had held the presidency of the group since 1997, following the death of his father, Edmond de Rothschild.

He was the son of Baroness Nadine de Rothschild, 88, a former actress best known for her books on the art of fitness and good behavior.

The family home, where the banker spent his last hours, is called "Rothschild Castle" and has been in the family's noble family since the mid-nineteenth century.

Later, the group issued a statement confirming de Rothschild's death, affirming that he had been an exceptionally pioneer during these years.

She referred to his charitable activities, noting the impact he had on the development of the Derothschild Hospital's performance.

As of the end of 2019, the economic agency Bloomberg says, the group had assets of 173 billion Swiss francs ($ 194 billion) and activity in 15 countries.

The Rothschilds were once one of the richest families in the world, and Benjamin's grandfather fled to Switzerland during World War II.

In it, the father, Edmund de Rothschild, established a financial group in 1953, and after a while he was able to buy a Swiss bank.

The Rothschild family fortune is ranked 22nd on the 2019 list of French fortunes, it is ranked 43 on the Bailan 2019 Swiss wealth list, and 1349 on the Forbes 2019 list of billionaires in the world.

Benjamin was considered one of the wealthiest members of the Rothschilds.

The Rothschilds are a family with an influential banking dynasty in the world, which came to light in Frankfurt, Germany, at the hands of Mayer Amschel Rothschild in the eighteenth century.

The family gained a greater reputation with the growth of the work of his five prophets, and the dynasty is seen as a pioneer in the development of international finance, especially as it established banking branches in London, Paris, Vienna and Naples, in addition to its original home in Frankfurt.
