NM Rothschild pitches motorway privatisation plan
30 August 2009
, by Robert Watts and Dominic O’Connell (The Sunday Times)
http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/industry_sectors/banking_and_finance/article6814923.ece

The Department for Transport has also asked the Highways Agency to consider hard-shoulder running without any refuges

A radical plan to raise £100 billion by privatising the motorway network has been presented to the three main political parties by NM Rothschild, the influential investment bank.

Rothschild, an architect of several privatisations, made its pitch in the weeks running up to the summer recess on July 21, Whitehall sources said. Bankers told leading politicians that the sale of the roads overseen by the Highways Agency — all motorways and most big trunk roads — could help revive battered public finances.

Toll-road companies and infrastructure funds would compete to operate and maintain stretches of the network.

In one version of the scheme, the government would pay for upkeep through a system of “shadow” tolls. A more radical, and less politically palatable, option would be for companies to charge motorists directly through toll booths or electronic card readers. The RAC Foundation, a motorists’ group, advocated privatisation in a report last week.

The Rothschild plan has already won the support of Vince Cable, the Liberal Democrats’ deputy leader and Treasury spokesman.

“This is an attractive, positive idea which could release considerable resources to the public finances and may have real environmental merits,” Cable said. “The scale of it is vast — it makes rail privatisation look like small beer.”

Theresa Villiers, the shadow transport secretary, said the Conservatives had “no plans” to back Rothschild’s proposals: “Rothschilds, like many other banks and consultancies, have approached me and my team on a range of ideas for our transport network, including their ideas for our road infrastructure, but we are not working on any proposals for privatisation of the strategic road network and have no plans to do so.”

Motorway privatisation was considered by John Major’s Conservative administration, which sold British Rail, but was rejected.

A spokesman at the Department for Transport said: “It is not unusual for organisations to suggest ideas to government departments but ultimately all policy is decided by ministers and there are no plans to sell off a stake in the Highways Agency.” Rothschild declined to comment.

The bank was behind many of the key privatisations of the 1980s and 1990s, including British Steel, British Gas and British Coal. It has close links to the Conservatives, having employed several senior Party figures including Lord Lamont, John Redwood and Lord Wakeham. Oliver Letwin, the former shadow chancellor, works there part-time.

Politicians of all Parties are seeking ways to decrease the need for large tax rises or heavy cuts in public services. The bank bailouts and a recent collapse in tax revenues has seen public sector debt rise to more than £800 billion, 56.8% of GDP — up from 35.5% just two years ago.

Road tolls are unpopular, however. When Labour mooted road pricing two years ago, more than 230,000 signed a petition on the Downing Street decrying the plan .

Just imagine the things that any private owner would do, and not necessary NM Rothschild:

o Impose a pay per hour scheme, then reduce the speed limit for safety and to reduce "wear and tear".

o Impose hefty fees for commercial road users like bus companies and haulage firms

o Require every car owner to have a GPS recorder in order that they can be billed "accurately".

Would the new owners take ownership of motorway cafes, business parks and recreational areas accessible only by motorway?

With the help of software like Autoroute, many drivers might be tempted to take the free side roads rather than an section of expensive motorway.

The Rothschilds JP Morgan Bank announced that it would soon be investing heavily in infrastructure back in July 2008.

Right now they're just waiting for the big crash next year when cash-strapped state governments will be forced to sell the infrastructure unless the public wakes up and stops them.

They'll need to use all those dollars they've stolen before they become valueless.

It's disgusting how much of the infrastructure has already been bought up, especially the water systems.  That should have been one of the most obvious parts of the infrastructure which you NEVER sell, but now Americans are getting sucked dry, and the real raping hasn't even started yet.

Rothschild to appoint first non-family chief

Rothschild to appoint first non-family chief
9 February 2010
, by Megan Murphy (The Financial Times)
http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/c1c8e99e-15bf-11df-ad7e-00144feab49a.html

The Rothschild banking dynasty is to appoint a non-family member as chief executive for the first time in its 212-year history, as the group seeks to adapt its management structure to the post-crisis climate.

Nigel Higgins, a 27-year veteran of the company who has co-headed the investment banking business for the past decade, will become chief executive of the family holding company in March, taking over from David de Rothschild.

Mr Rothschild – he and his son are the only two Rothschild family members involved in the business – will remain as executive chairman.
“We all know that organisations that stay static and don’t change go backwards, not forwards,” Mr Rothschild told the Financial Times.

The dynasty traces its roots to 1798, when 21-year-old Nathan Mayer Rothschild arrived in England from Germany to start a textile business. With the Channel blockade of the Napoleonic wars making exports difficult, Nathan turned by 1809 to London’s financial markets to make his fortune.

Within a decade, his four brothers had established banking houses in Paris, Vienna, Naples and Frankfurt.

Rothschild has about 900 investment bankers worldwide, with its advisory business fairly evenly split between mergers and acquisitions work and corporate finance. The group has a smaller operation in private banking and asset management.

Mr Higgins, who joined the firm as a graduate, described the change as “evolutionary rather than revolutionary”. He said that to split the chairman’s and chief executive’s roles would free Mr Rothschild to pursue opportunities.

The group recently closed its first private equity fund, a €600m (£527m) investment vehicle seeded by Rothschild staff as well as outside investors, as it seeks to diversify revenue streams from advisory work.

Mr Higgins said the sense of “instability” and “mistrust” at some larger investment banks in the aftermath of the financial crisis had also formed opportunities for the bank, in terms of recruiting senior people as well as in winning market share.

John Kingman, former chief of UK Financial Investments, was one of the firm’s most recent high-profile recruits.

Lord Rothschild fund joins World Gold Council to put £12.5m into BullionVault
20 June 2010
, by Garry White (Telegraph.UK)
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/banksandfinance/7842235/Lord-Rothschild-fund-joins-World-Gold-Council-to-put-12.5m-into-BullionVault.html

An investment fund backed by Lord Rothschild has joined the World Gold Council to put £12.5m into BullionVault, the online gold investment platform.



Investment demand for gold has risen on concerns that sovereign debt problems could spread  Photo: EPA

Tim Levene of Augmentum Capital, a fund backed by Lord Rothschild's RIT Capital Partners, said the investment was not a bet on the gold  price but on "the future growth of the BullionVault platform", which stores physical gold for private clients in London, New York and Zurich. RIT currently has 9pc of its assets in physical gold.

Investment demand for the metal has risen on concerns that sovereign debt problems could spread and the value of currencies plunge. The gold price hit a new nominal all-time high above $1,260 on Friday and analysts expect the price will continue to rise.

In return for the £12.5m investment, the World Gold Council and Augmentum will receive an equity stake in BullionVault.

Marcus Grubb, managing director of investment at the World Gold Council, said taking the BullionVault stake was part of the Council's strategy of "increasing its portfolio of successful platforms for gold investment". Mr Levine and Mr Grubb will join BullionVault's board.

BullionVault has about $800m (£540m) of gold under management for 20,000 customers from more than 90 countries. The average holding is around £30,000.

The World Gold Council's previous investment vehicle, a gold exchange-traded fund, now has 1,306 tonnes of the metal under management, worth $52.3bn. This makes it the world's second-largest exchange-traded fund. If the fund was a central bank, it would be sixth largest in the league table of gold holders.

Rothschild Warns on Deflation as Conference Focuses on Risks

Rothschild Warns on Deflation as Conference Focuses on Risks
23 June 2010
, by Simon Kennedy and Svenja O’Donnell (Bloomberg)
http://noir.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601068&sid=aV0CWFC5KXOU

June 24 (Bloomberg) -- Investors need to be wary of deflationary pressures in the global economy as it recovers from the worst recession since World War II, said money managers and former policy makers at a Bloomberg Link conference in London.

“The odds are much more on deflation than they were a few months ago,” multimillionaire U.K. financier Jacob Rothschild told the conference. “We are in for a period of trying to deliver the minimum. We should forget thinking about making a lot of money over the next year.”

The comments came one day after the Federal Reserve said “underlying inflation has trended lower” in the U.S. and as leaders from the Group of 20 nations head to Toronto to debate the timing of austerity measures needed to cut budget deficits. Portuguese and Greek officials told the conference that their governments will restore investors’ confidence, even as the cost to insure Greek debt against default jumped to a record today.

Credit-default swaps on Greece rose 38 basis points to an all-time high of 970 basis points, according to CMA DataVision. Contracts on Portuguese government securities climbed 16 basis points to a two-week high of 336.5. U.S. stocks slid for a fourth day, partly on concern about Greece, with the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index declining 1.3 percent to 1078.11.

Rothschild’s remarks chimed with those of economists and other investors at the “Sovereign Debt Briefing” conference, who warned the euro area is not yet free of the debt crisis that began in Greece and rattled economies from Spain to Ireland.


Growth Cap

The combination of debt turmoil and subsequent fiscal austerity will put a “cap on growth” and fan deflation, said Jan Szilagyi of Hawker Capital LLP.

Some investors said it’s still possible to profit from deflationary pressures in the European economy.

“For the euro to succeed it needs deflation to address the lack of competitiveness in countries like Greece and elsewhere,” said Hugh Hendry, who manages $420 million as co- founder of Eclectica Asset Management in London. “If that is your premise, you need to be long German 30-year bonds.”

Those securities, which currently give investors a return of 3.35 percent, will eventually yield less than 2 percent, he said.

Rothschild said with few currencies worth buying, about 10 percent of RIT’s assets were in gold, the most ever. RIT had net assets of 1.8 billion pounds ($2.7 billion) at the end of March.


Troubled Times

“In these troubled times it’s a sensible spreading of risk,” he said.

His pessimism was offset by Stanley Fink, the former chief executive of Man Group Plc. “There are reasons to be a bit more optimistic,” he said, adding that the euro may eventually split into a “two tier” currency system that would help solve its current woes.

Former U.K. Chancellor of the Exchequer Norman Lamont focused attention on the size of the U.S. budget deficit, arguing that the world’s largest economy may be “living in a fool’s paradise” by not starting to cut its shortfall.

“It’s right to be cautious, pessimistic about the outlook for the world economy,” said Lamont, who was finance minister when the U.K. was forced out of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism in 1992. “The Americans are not facing up to the problem they have.”


Debt Load

Governments are at odds over when to start trimming a G-20 debt load that the International Monetary Fund estimates will average 110 percent of gross domestic product in 2015. Current U.K. Finance Minister George Osborne on June 22 announced the country’s deepest cuts since World War II in a bid to convince investors that the U.K. won’t suffer Greece’s fate. The U.S. argues that governments shouldn’t risk pushing the global economy back into recession.

European officials played down the threats to their own economies from debt burdens even as the region’s stocks retreated for a third day amid concern that the sovereign debt crisis may derail the economic recovery. The benchmark Stoxx Europe 600 Index dropped 1.8 percent to 249.94 points.

Carlos Costa Pina, Portugal’s secretary of state for treasury and finance, said in a Bloomberg Television interview he’s confident the government will reach its budget deficit and maintained his economic growth forecast of 0.7 percent this year.

Petros Christodoulou, head of Greece’s debt agency, said the country’s European Union loan package is giving his country leeway to focus on its fiscal-consolidation measures and there’s no reason to expect a default. Moody’s Investors Service cut Greece’s credit rating by four steps to junk on June 14, citing “substantial” risks to growth from austerity measures.

“The package we received gives us the luxury not to think about it at this stage,” Christodoulou said, referring to potential future debt sales. “No one at the moment is looking at a restructuring in Greece, no one in Greece, no one outside Greece.”

Fed Control Puts Outsiders In A Disadvantage
7 August 2010
, by Bob Chapman (The International Forecaster)
http://theinternationalforecaster.com/International_Forecaster_Weekly/Fed_Control_Puts_Outsiders_In_A_Disadvantage

Excerpt:


Fed feeds insider information, the need to re-liquefy, threats of deflation, clearly the dollar no longer brings stability to the financial system, losses mount for home owners, gulf residents, job layoffs rise.

It was only a month ago that the Dow closed at 9686. From there it started to move back up again as insiders learned of the Fed’s plan to inject $5 trillion into the economy over the next two years. The result has been a run up to 10,674. We figured out what the Fed was up to, but most everyone else did not.

During that period, almost unnoticed, was the fall in the value of the dollar. On the USDX it has fallen from 86.12 to 80.58.

Bob Chapman Excerpt: The SDR?

Bob Chapman: “Fed Control Puts Outsiders In A Disadvantage” 7 August 2010 – Excerpt:
http://theinternationalforecaster.com/International_Forecaster_Weekly/Fed_Control_Puts_Outsiders_In_A_Disadvantage

The SDR?

“It was just some 50 years ago that the SDR, the Special Drawing Right, was created by the IMF. After being put into use in the late 1960s as an alternative to gold, it was essentially abandoned.

A new IMF study calls for the use and re-issuance of the SDR, another product of the Keynesian wonderland. This time in the form of bancor, a new global currency to be designed as a stable store of value for the world economy – the currency to be put into play to save the financial world. This, needless to say, was one of Keynes ideas introduced after WWII. We never got bancor, instead we got a partially gold backed dollar that became a fiat currency on August 15,1971. It only took 23 years to destroy the dollar.

The resultant credit crisis of the past few years has proven that the dollar no longer brings stability to the financial system. Like many other sovereign countries its currency is unstable. That has caused the one-worlders at the IMF to bring back two losers, the SDR and bancor, both of which would be entirely un-backed currencies. As a result users continue to look at the dollar’s exponential accumulation of debt, and wonder where do we go from here.”

Rothschild: the U.S. economy is in a coma
« Reply #17 on: January 17, 2011, 08:39:44 AM »
October 21, 2010. Baron Benjamin de Rothschild, in his interview to TheMarker said that the U.S. economy is over.

Rothschild blames banks and tycoons of Wall Street for this situation. According to him, they are still continuing to inflate the new financial "bubbles" that inevitably will collapse.  He mentioned that leaders of  investment bank Lihman Brothers did not hesitate to write his multimillion-dollar bonuses for a few days before the collapse of the bank.  "They all deserve to be in jail" - said 47-year-Rothschild.

Family values
5 November 2010
, by Eytan Avriel and Guy Rolnik (Haaretz)
http://www.haaretz.com/weekend/magazine/family-values-1.323094

Excerpt:

At the age of 47, Baron Benjamin de Rothschild has put the 4-billion-euro family fortune in the hands of his wife, Baroness Ariane de Rothschild. 'I think women today are better suited for business than men,' he says. In an extensive, and rare, interview to Haaretz-The Marker, Baron de Rothschild talks about his brand of Judaism, his distaste for trading gold and his love of speed.

----

Without the financial backing of the Rothschilds, kings found it difficult to go to war.

----

The Rothschilds remained key players in London and Paris, however.

----

Baron Edmond Benjamin James de Rothschild, "the Benefactor," laid the foundations for Jewish settlement in Palestine through his economic support for what came to be known as the First Aliyah, the wave of Jewish immigration from 1882-1903.

----

Baron Benjamin de Rothschild, you are media- and publicity-averse. Why did you agree to this interview?

"We are becoming more and more important in the Israeli financial system, and our philanthropic activity in Israel is also growing. So we decided to open ourselves a little bit more to the Israeli public, so we can be better known, if only because my great-grandfather started the country. We would not want people to forget that. Lately I have been gradually transferring to Ariane responsibility and handling of the family's assets around the world and also in Israel. She is now in charge of the Caesarea Foundation."

Do you visit Israel often?

"In the past I used to come to Israel quite often, but less so in recent years."

From Rothschild to Gold, Gleick Maps Info Evolution: Interview
8 March 2011
, by Zinta Lundborg (Bloomberg)
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-03-08/from-rothschild-pigeons-to-gold-gleick-traces-info-evolution-interview.html

Excerpt:

“It from Bit,” said physicist John Wheeler, who viewed information as the basic principle of existence, underlying everything from quarks to the space-time continuum. He’s just one of the great thinkers crowding the pages of James Gleick’s latest book, “The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood.”

Beginning with 5,000 year old cuneiform records of barley sales, Gleick takes a look at how we process and think about information, and how information theory is changing everything from genetics to quantum mechanics to economics.

We spoke in his light-filled aerie overlooking Lincoln Center.

Lundborg: So there’s no quick definition of information?

Gleick: The Oxford English Dictionary has just revised and updated its entry on information and it now runs almost ten thousand words.

Scientists have a definition of information that they created beginning in 1948.

Lundborg: If there’s a central figure in your book, it’s Claude Shannon, who wrote “The Mathematical Theory of Communication.”

Gleick: He was an engineer and mathematician at Bell Labs who created what we now call information theory. He had a technical definition, with an equation that goes with it.

Lord Jacob Rothschild Suggests You Panic
3 June 2011
, by Tyler Durden (Zero Hedge)
http://www.zerohedge.com/article/lord-jacob-rothschild-suggests-you-panic

When The Lord tells you to panic... You panic. And beg for QE 3, 4, 5, etc. Just think of the poor bankers.

From RIT Capital Partners PLC Annual Report:

Let me look now at the time ahead. I reminded shareholders in my Chairman’s Statement last year that our aim of preserving shareholders’ capital takes precedence over short-term capital growth if we feel that there remains above-average risk of capital loss.

There is, I believe, a growing awareness of the dangerous position which confronts many countries, particularly those in the developed world.

In spite of these concerns, we continue to take advantage of areas that we believe are attractive, but we will remain cautious in terms of the quantum of capital that we allocate. For instance, your Company has benefited from the rise in commodity prices.

Yet a noted US strategist has pointed out that commodity returns relative to equity returns are at a 200-year high on a rolling 10-year basis.

We are not alone in having noted the attractive level of valuation of many quality companies, eclipsed till now by commodity and cyclical companies.

After a decade of commodity leadership, a shift to a new regime is a  possibility; identifying a new trend, if indeed it comes to pass, will be a major factor in future investment performance.


The risks ahead are glaring and global. The US recovery is fragile, with millions unable to find work.

The Dollar has diminished in value and the government deficit has ballooned.

In Europe, the fate of the Monetary Union is in doubt and growth is likely to slow as the European Union seeks to rein in government deficits and spending in a number of their member countries.

Japan’s challenge following the earthquake and tsunami is monumental.

The Middle East uprisings have led to a surge in oil prices. Inflation is threatening in emerging markets.

African and other poor nations are suffering from grain prices which have risen by about 70%.

It is likely that the withdrawal of the fiscal and monetary stimuli which will surely come soon will have an impact on global growth: indeed there is already evidence of some slowing down since your Company’s year-end of 31 March
.

Stock market performance does not necessarily go hand in hand with economies.

Timing is crucial, at least in the short term, for investment performance.

In these uncertain times it means retaining a good quota of liquidity and being eclectic in our investments, picking our stocks and situations well as we long have done.

Rothschild Private Bank and Trust Friday said it has secured two high-profile bankers from UBS AG and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS) for new positions in its money-management operations.

The Zurich-based private bank said UBS structured products specialist Marco Schaller becomes head of service management and offering development, a new position to better cater to sophisticated demands from wealthy clients, effective Dec. 1.

Rothschild is also hiring Goldman Sachs's portfolio management expert Andreas Bickel as head of strategic asset allocation and advisory in Switzerland. Bickel will also be responsible for Rothschild's research and mandates from ultra-high net worth clients.

UPDATE: Societe Generale Signs Liquidity Contract With Rothschild
23 August 2011
, by Noemie Bisserbe - Paris (Dow Jones - The Wall Street Journal)
http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20110823-709045.html

Excerpt:

--Contract aimed at preventing excessive liquidity in the bank's shares.

--Analysts say move may help correct some of market abnormalities.

--Traders say banks stocks will remain fragile


Societe Generale SA (GLE.FR), whose shares have come under severe pressure in recent weeks, said Tuesday that it had signed a liquidity contract with Rothschild & Cie to prevent excessive volatility in its stock price.

Societe Generale, France's second-largest listed bank, has set aside EUR170 million for Rothschild to buy and sell shares in the market to prevent swings in prices. "The idea is not to keep the stock price high but rather to keep it steady," a spokesperson for Societe Generale said.

Societe Generale shares were hammered Aug. 10 amid unfounded rumors about its financial position, after a British tabloid, published an article, alleging that the bank was in a "perilous" state. Its shares have lost 44% over the past month; on Aug. 10, at one point its stock was down more than 20%.

The bank has called the rumors ludicrous and has underscored its strong financial position.

Analysts said the arrangement with Rothschild won't insulate the stock against big moves.

"This new contract may help correct some of the market abnormalities. It won't, however, be enough to prevent battering of the stock, like the one we have seen in the past month," a Paris-based analyst said.

Lord Rothschild takes £130 million ($204 million) bet against the euro

Lord Rothschild takes £130m bet against the euro
18 August 2012
, by James Quinn (The Telegraph)
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/financialcrisis/9484435/Lord-Rothschild-takes-130m-bet-against-the-euro.html

Lord Rothschild has taken a near-£130 million bet against the euro as fears continue to grow that the single currency will break up.

The member of the banking dynasty has taken the position through RIT Capital Partners, the £1.9 billion investment trust of which he is executive chairman.

The fact that the former investment banker, a senior member of the Rothschild family, has taken such a view will be seen as a further negative for the currency.

The latest omen follows news in The Daily Telegraph late last week that the government of Finland is already preparing for the euro’s break-up.

RIT, which Lord Rothschild has led since 1988, had a -7% net short position in terms of principal currency exposures on the euro at the end of July, up from -3% at the end of January.

Given a net asset value of £1.836 billion at the end of July, the position is worth £128 million.

Sources close to RIT suggested that the position was not a dogmatic negative view on the euro as a currency, but rather a realistic approach on a currency that remains relatively weak.

It is not the first time Lord Rothschild has used currency positions as a form of hedge.

RIT significantly increased its exposure in sterling after the currency’s decline in 2008, but then scaled back on both the sterling and the euro, anticipating the ensuing recessions in both regions.

Some 53% of RIT’s assets were in US dollars at the end of July, in part a reflection of its deal to buy a 37% stake in Rockefeller Financial Services at the end of May.

Lord Rothschild is not alone in seeing value in shorting – or selling down – the euro.

At a conference organised by business news channel CNBC in July, Mary Callahan Erdoes, head of JPMorgan Asset Management, said “shorting the euro” when asked for her single best investment idea.

In June, George Soros – the billionaire investor best known in the UK for helping to force sterling out of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism in 1992 by betting against the British currency – said that European leaders at that point had a “three-month window” to save the euro.

Lord Rothschild Betting On Euro Collapse?

Banking titan places $200 million dollar short against single currency

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
Monday, August 20, 2012

If the actions of Lord Jacob Rothschild are anything to go by, the long predicted collapse of the Euro may not be far away, with the banking titan placing a $200 million dollar bet against the troubled single currency.


“Lord Rothschild, an elder member of the dynastic Rothschild banking family, has taken the position against the euro through RIT Capital Partners, the 1.9 billion pound investment trust of which he is executive chairman,” reports CNBC.

RIT has upped its short against the Euro from 3 per cent in January to 7 per cent in July.

The European Central Bank continues to try to re-animate a dead corpse by continually pumping bailout money into debt-ridden countries like Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Spain.

However, top investors only see it as a matter of time before the single currency is consigned to the landfill of economic history.

Last week, influential German newspaper Der Spiegel reported that “Banks, companies and investors are preparing themselves for a collapse of the euro.”
Meanwhile, billionaires like John Paulson and George Soros are throwing their financial muscle behind gold as the financial picture looks increasingly unstable heading towards the end of the year.

“According to Bloomberg News, Paulson & Co. and Soros Fund Management bumped up exposure to SPDR Gold Trust to 21.8 million shares and 884,000 shares, respectively. Paulson & Co. now has 44 percent of its $24 billion fund exposed to bullion,” reports ABC News.

The next leg of the financial collapse is being forecast by many to be far greater in severity than the 2008 downturn, with Max Keiser appearing on the Alex Jones Show Friday to predict a systemic economic meltdown before April 2013.

“There is no way to stop it because systems analysis tells me that when you complicate a system to the degree that this has been compromised and complicated there’s a 99.9 per cent probability of a total utter systemic collapse before April (2013),” said Keiser.

He followed up by stating, “There is only one possible outcome from that and that’s civil war – there’s gotta be a civil war – it’s gonna be a civil war in America intergenerational – all the people under 30 are going to go to war with everybody who’s 45-plus who basically stole all their money, stole their country, stole their wealth….if you have one you’re gonna have the other and that would come in 2013.”

Those who wish to remain ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, want what never was and what never will be.  - Thomas Jefferson

Lord Rothschild in $200 Million Bet Against Euro: Report - CNBC

You know the euro is in deep water when a doyen of the banking industry, Lord Jacob Rothschild takes a £130 million ($200 million) bet against it. (That's because he help plan it ,to be that way)

Lord Rothschild, an elder member of the dynastic Rothschild banking family, has taken the position against the euro through RIT Capital Partners, the 1.9 billion pound investment trust of which he is executive chairman, according to a report in the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph.

As cynicism that the single currency is on its last legs continues to spread among some euro zone politicians and the public, the influential financier has used the currency as a form of hedge.

RIT has taken a 7 percent net short position in July, in terms of principle currency exposures on the euro [EUR=X  1.2578  ---  UNCH    ], up from a 3 percent net short position in January. “Given a net asset value of £1.836 billion at the end of July, the position is worth £128 million,” the newspaper reported.

The Telegraph quoted sources close to the banker as saying that that his current position against the euro is a realistic one given that the currency remains weak and not a “dogmatic, negative view” on the currency per se.

I've wondered about this.

My first thought was - OMG the Euro is going down.

Then I started to think, other thoughts, such as "But the Evil Union of European States is a long term goal of Bilderberg, its supposed to replace America as the Superpower."

I also thought "If he did place a bet, why is it so public, and for a man of his wealth, such a small sized sum of money ?"

So now I'm all confused.
I do not know if the Euro is going to replace the collapsed Dollar.

Interesting.

I have a nasty feeling, what with all the militarizing of police, huge purchases of ammo, building forced labour camps, re-education camps, underground bases, cameras, coffins, and so on that they are preparing to take out America if we do not speak out... Whereas in europe nothing like the same scale of preparation is being undertaken.

I also recall the story of how the Rothschilds fooled the London Markets by placing Bets in Public that the Battle of Waterloo was lost... When I recall that story, it makes me quiet sceptical of the Rothschilds

I could be wrong of course.

Reed Elsevier Sells French Unit to BNP, Rothschild Funds

Reed Elsevier Sells French Unit to BNP, Rothschild Funds
3 June 2013
, by Kristen Schweizer (Bloomberg)
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-06-03/reed-elsevier-sells-french-media-unit-to-bnp-rothschild-funds.html

Reed Elsevier, owner of the LexisNexis database, sold its French media unit RBI France to funds belonging to Edmond de Rothschild Group and BNP Paribas Developpement to reduce its dependence on advertising revenue.

The funds bought a 75% stake of RBI France, while the remaining 25% was purchased by managers Jean-Pierre Seguret and Alexandre Sidommo, Reed Elsevier said in a statement today.

RBI France was sold for £40 million ($61 million), according to a person familiar with the matter who asked not to be named because the financial details are confidential.

RBI France is the latest disposal by the Anglo-Dutch publisher as it moves away from cyclical markets to focus on electronic data services and research offerings.

The company sold its Australian media business in January and the Variety Hollywood trade magazine in October.

In April, Reed Elsevier bought Mendeley Ltd., a cloud-based research and collaboration service, to add to scientific, technical and medical publishing.

London-based Reed Elsevier said in February it expects to post growth in underlying revenue, profit and earnings in 2013, even as the market remains “mixed.”

About 20% of Reed Elsevier revenue in 2012 came from print products.

The funds’ “common goal is now to enable RBI to seize growth opportunities in its markets,” Pierre-Yves Poirier, a partner at Edmond de Rothschild Investment Partners, said in an e-mailed statement.

Laura Barkatz, a Rothschild representative, declined to comment on the amount of the purchase. Spokesmen at BNP Paribas didn’t immediately respond to e-mails seeking comment.
