Rothschild & Co - Assemblée générale des actionnaires du 16 mai 2019

Proxinvest attire l'attention des actionnaires sur les points suivants :

Tout d'abord sur les changements de gouvernance. En effet lors de l'exercice 2018, David de Rothschild a quitté ses fonctions de gérant pour devenir Président du Conseil de Surveillance. Suite à ce départ, c'est son fils, Alexandre qui a repris la gérance de la société.

Le conseil d'administration n'est toujours pas majoritairement indépendant d'après Proxinvest, ce que Proxinvest regrette.

Le dernier point à noter est qu'un accord a été trouvé entre Rothschild & Co et le groupe Edmond de Rothschild. Suite à cet accord les deux société ont dénoué leurs participations croisées.
