Stern family

The Stern family is a Jewish French banking family originally from Frankfurt. It traces back to Samuel Hayum Stern (1760–1819), who in the 1780s became a wine merchant in Frankfurt. His son, Jacob Samuel Heyum Stern, started a banking business in Frankfurt, and had his sons expand the family venture to Berlin, London, and Paris, of which the latter became most prominent as Banque Stern.[1] and J. Stern & Co.
