William Wells: Rothschild is committed

As part of Euromoney's 50th anniversary coverage, we profile some of the biggest names that we interviewed for our May CEE focus.

As William Wells is fond of reminding people, Rothschild has been doing business in central and eastern Europe for a very long time. 


“When anyone asks us how committed we are to the region, we take great pleasure in telling them that our first major investments were in the 1830s,” says Wells, executive vice-chairman for CEE.

Another aspect the firm is keen to emphasize, in an era of suitcase banking, is its extensive physical network in the region. As well as offices in Warsaw, Istanbul and Athens, Rothschild has representatives in Budapest, Bucharest and Zagreb, plus a number of local exclusive affiliations.
