Birth & Family
Robert Ebert investment banker, an only child, was born to a working-class family. His parents arrived in London in the late 1950’s. They were fleeing the beginnings of war in their home country. His mother worked for the Civil Service at the Charity Commission from the early 1960’s. She retired 30 years later. Robert’s father worked as a Workshop Controller for a car company. They led a simple, suburban life. In 1970, Robert’s parents bought a house for 6,000 pounds ( 9000 U.S. Dollars). Till this day, his father calls that house home.
Robert Ebert investment banker was educated in State Schools since his parents were unable to finance a private education. He was a gifted, but not exceptional student. However, if he lacked anything intellectually, he made up for any short-comings with determination. He grew up being one of only a handful of non-white children at his schools. This led to inevitable conflicts. However, the lessons he learned on the playground and the ability to communicate with all types of people and bring them onto his side, would stay with him throughout his whole adult life.
Even at a young age, it was clear that he was a good leader. In fact, before he became a Deutsche banker, Robert Ebert already displayed impeccable leadership skills. He was made Deputy School Captain. In addition, he became captain of many of the sports teams he played for. The education that prepared him for the world of Global Investment Banking, did not happen in the hallowed halls of an Ivy League School or a Red-Brick University. Instead,they happened on the tarmac and grass of South London’s State-Run school system.
