When Rothschild decided to create a new client advisory team for its UK wealth management business, it recruited Costa Duarte; he has fourteen years’ experience working with ‘unbelievably interesting’ UHNWs and running a private equity firm. He believes his time with the Household Cavalry still enriches his work. ‘Whether you’re negotiating your way through a difficult situation at a roadblock with the local militia, or briefing a general or even a visiting minister, communicating well with people, building teams, and the ability to analyse and gain consensus are great things that the army teaches you — and they also apply in our industry.’ He underlines Rothschild’s emphasis on the long term, a mentality that pervades the bank: ‘We believe being a long-term owner of a great business is the best way to preserve and grow wealth.’
