Rothschild Family Early Years & History
As the son of Amschel Moses Rothschild, the family had begun to see international prominence quickly rising under the guidance and vision of Mayer Amschel Rothschild, and this had started around the year of 1744. The Rothschild Family has been known to be one of the wealthiest Ashkenazi Jewish Family who have originated from Germany. It has been mentioned that during the 19th century, the Rothschild Family had already possessed the highest largest sum of fortune ever owned privately in the world at that time and also in modern world history.
During the 20th century, their wealth had seen a decline and going forward their business interests had diversified into various other sectors such as financial services, energy, manufacturing, agriculture, etc. It has been stated by authors that the wealth of the Rothschild Family had been protected because the bank system which had been created by the family was unaffected by the local attacks. The family’s biggest assets were circulated and held only in the form of various financial instruments such as bonds, stocks and debts.
Rothschild Family Success Strategy
Over the years, it has been found that an essential part of the Rothschild’s success for centuries has been the strategy that was used by Mayer Rothschild. His strategy was to keep full control of their banking businesses worldwide in the hands of their own family. This allowed the family to maintain complete secrecy about information related to the size of the fortune amassed by the family. This practice has also been cited by the ‘Jewish Encyclopaedia’ to be one of the most efficient and thus, has been reused by various other Jewish financiers such as the Lazards, Seligman, etc.
This was also been followed by the increasing share of international finance during the middle and end quarters of the 19th century. Adding to this practice, various groups within the family had kept the wealth in the family itself by the use of arranged marriages. These marriages had been known to have been mostly between the first or the second cousins, very similar to the intermarriages in royal families. After the 19th century, the members of the Rothschild Family started to marry outside into the aristocracy or other financial dynasties which changed how the control looked.
