Two of the best-known business dynasties in Europe and the US will come together after Lord Jacob Rothschild's listed investment trust and Rockefeller Financial Services agreed to form a strategic partnership. RIT Capital Partners [RITPF 17.25 — UNCH ] is to buy a 37 per cent stake in the Rockefeller's wealth advisory and asset management group for an undisclosed sum, giving Lord Rothschild's London-listed trust a much sought-after foothold in the US. The transatlantic union brings together David Rockefeller, 96, and Lord Rothschild, 76—two family patriarchs whose personal relationship spans five decades. The Rockefeller group traces its roots back to 1882 when John D. Rockefeller established one of the world's first family offices dedicated to investing his wealth. It has since developed into a provider of wealth and asset management services to other families, foundations and institutions. It is majority-owned by the 19th century oil magnate's family and has $34 billion of assets under management. U.S. Dollar and Euro – Review and Outlook … Going forward, we consider that central banks. – Financial Times
Dominant Social Theme: After so many hundreds of years, two famous names hook up.
Free-Market Analysis: This is not a joke, though if it were April 1 or if it had appeared somewhere other than the Financial Times we might have been most skeptical.
It is actually a most disturbing announcement. It seems to indicate to us that what we call dominant social themes of the elite have taken a turn we've long been expecting. More on that in a minute.
Some background. We have made no secret of our perspective that the Internet Reformation has revealed what we call the globalist conspiracy. The globalists reverse this and brand those who understand what is going on "conspiracy theorists."
But the conspiracy belongs to the globalists. It is no accident, most likely, that there were few central banks at the beginning of last century and now there are 150.
This past century saw the rise of the regulatory state, along with international facilities such as the World Bank, World Health Organization, International Monetary Fund, United Nations and Bank for International Settlements.
From what we can tell, the globalists have been working on world government for up to 300 years. But it is the Internet that has fully revealed what is taking place for anyone who wants to look.
And we have expected that sooner or later there would be some dramatic acknowledgement of this fact.
We've noticed the signs. In fact, the use of Draconian regulation, war and economic recession and depression are signs of elite desperation made manifest.
Exposed, they throw the world into chaos, hoping that a more malleable new order shall result.
And this is the disturbing element. There is no reason why 96-year-old David Rockefeller should make an alliance with Evelyn Rothschild except to send a kind of message. A fear-based promotion designed to send the alternative 'Net media into a frenzy.
But it's more than the blogosphere. For the many millions who are "wide awake" and understand the conspiracy, this is a sign that the leaders of the conspiracy are acknowledging their topmost positions.
It is like a kind coronation. The reality of global power is being announced.
It is a show of defiance as well, a metaphorical statement that what was secret shall not be so furtive in the future. Here's some more from the article:
The partnership with RIT will focus on setting up investment funds, eyeing joint acquisitions of wealth and asset managers and granting each other non-executive directorships. RIT Capital Partners is minority-owned by Lord Rothschild and its net assets of £1.9 billion ($2.97 billion) are spread across global investments from public equities to government bonds and private equity.
The deal stemmed from a meeting two years ago when Mr Rockefeller introduced Lord Rothschild to the US group's chief executive, Reuben Jeffery. In a follow-up meeting one year later at Lord Rothschild's office at Spencer House in London, the financier won Mr Jeffery's blessing for opening talks to buy a stake in the Rockefeller group.
He then launched long negotiations with Société Générale Private Banking, which has owned the shareholding since 2008. The French bank's wealth management arm has had several suitors for the minority stake – estimated to be worth less than £100 million ($156.2 million) – but Lord Rothschild was the only one supported by the Rockefellers.
The point is surely to send a message. The stuff about business mergers is a kind of red herring. The Rothschilds and Rockefellers apparently control central banks around the world and the mergers between the two families were made decades or centuries ago.
Will this announcement presage a whole new chapter in what we call the globalist conspiracy?
