"Rockefellers and Rothschilds Unite"
On 30 May, 2012, it was announced that RIT Capital Partners "is to buy a 37 per cent stake in" Rockefeller Financial Services. "The deal stemmed from a meeting two years ago when Mr Rockefeller introduced" Lord Jacob 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."
