October 27, 2021 -- Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management, the Geneva-based, family-owned investment house, with assets under management of CHF 173bn (2019), has formally announced the appointment of a new Managing Director and Head of Energy Investments, Ms. Gauri Kasbekar-Shah, who joins Edmond de Rothschild from Royal Bank of Scotland in London, where she was a Head of Structured Finance for over 13 years. Ms. Kasbekar-Shah is a graduate of the London School of Economics and a lawyer by training. Her appointment comes as Rothschild's published details of a fundraising milestone for its EUR 1.2bn infrastructure fund placement.

Rothschild's impressive "BRIDGE V infrastructure debt platform" is still fundraising, and is already guaranteed to exceed its predecessor, "BRIDGE IV"  which closed with EUR 1.25bn in February 2020.
