Rothschild & Cie Banque
It is re-created by David de Rothschild, Eric de Rothschild and Edouard de Rothschild in 1984 after nationalization in 1981 of Banque Rothschild by the Socialist government of the president François Mitterrand. It was capitalized at only $1 million and starting with just three employees.
At first, the bank was named Paris Orléans Banque because they were banned from using the family name. That restriction disappeared in 1986 and the bank was renamed Rothschild et Associes Banque and later Rothschild & Cie Banque.
