Bischoffsheim family

See also: BNP Paribas

The Bischoffsheim family is a family of German-Belgian Jewish descent known for success in banking. It can be traced back to Raphaël Nathan Bischoffsheim, an army contractor native of Tauberbischofsheim, in the Electorate of Mainz.[1] The family was particularly entangled with the Goldschmidt family of Frankfurt am Main, leading to the conjointly managed Bischoffsheim, Goldschmidt & Cie bank, which they eventually merged into Banque de Crédit et de Dépôt des Pays-Bas in 1863.[2][3]
