Baron Benjamin de Rothschild died of a heart attack on Friday, his family confirmed to AFP.

"Ariane de Rothschild and her daughters are extremely sad to announce the death of their husband and father, Benjamin de Rothschild following a heart attack at the family home of Pregny on the afternoon of 15 January, 2021," the family said in a statement, as quoted by the agency.

Baron Benjamin de Rothschild was the president of the family-owned Edmond de Rothschild Holding SA, which is headquartered in Geneva and specialises in private banking and asset management.​ He took charge of the group after the death of his father, Edmond, in 1997.

A private funeral will be held for the French banker in the coming days, his family said in a statement quoted by AFP.
