Nathaniel Rothschild Family

by Jessica Sara

The Rothschild family is very prominent in the banking world and so is Nathaniel Philip Victor James Rothschild (Nat). He is a British born financier and is currently settled in Switzerland. He is the Chairman of JNR Limited, an investment advisory company which focuses mainly on emerging markets and the metal sector. He is financial advisor to one of Russia’s richest oligarchs, Oleg Deripaska, who also happens to be the owner of global aluminum giant Rusal. He is extremely close to Roman Abramovich.


Nathaniel had a prestigious education at Colet Court, Eton College and Wadham College, Oxford. He was termed as the ‘black sheep’ of the Rothschild dynasty in his youth. He was extremely profligate and reckless while he was at Eton and Oxford. He also belonged to the Bullingdon Club, which was notoriously known for drug taking, vandalism, drinking and debauchery. However, as he grew up, he took charge of his life and started acting in a manner befitting a Rothschild. He put his childish rebellious attitude away and started focusing seriously on his career. Today, he is an extremely successful businessman who is making much more than the amount that is bequeathed to him when he takes over from his father as 5th Baron Rothschild.
