N M Rothschild & Sons

Member Description

The dramatic success of the five founding Rothschild brothers lay in their closely synchronised business. Having set up banking operations in Frankfurt, London, Paris, Vienna and Naples they bound themselves by contract to clear, defined objectives and set about creating the fastest and safest courier network in Europe by which they exchanged encoded market information on a daily basis. It proved to be a winning formula which soon positioned them as the best informed and most internationally effective banking group in the world.

Couriers, pigeon post, the telegraph, the telephone and e-mail: as each new medium of communication came along it was quickly embraced by the Rothschilds to maintain their advantage.
