On 8 July 2019, Goldsmith's fifteen-year-old daughter, Iris, died in a quad bike accident on his farm in North Brewham, Somerset. Goldsmith said that "it hurts me so much I can't describe".
In 2018, Goldsmith was appointed non-executive director at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. This proved controversial as he had previously donated cash to Michael Gove's Surrey Heath constituency and the selection process for the job was overseen by Sir Ian Cheshire, who is chairman of Goldsmith's investment firm, Menhaden Capital Management.
In 2017, Goldsmith participated in Forces for Nature, a major report released by EFN. The report aims to encourage more philanthropists to support environmental issues and explores how environmental contributors can be more effective.
In 2016 he campaigned for his brother Zac Goldsmith who was running for mayor of London.
In 2015 Goldsmith launched Menhaden Capital, a £74.4 million thematic investment trust focused on efficient energy and resource use. In July 2018 the trust reached its three-year milestone with a 30.5% drop in share price.
On 19 December 2014, he married Jemima Jones (b. 1987) in London, his girlfriend of two years. Jemima runs the catering company Tart London. The couple have two children: Eliza Margot (b. 2016) and Arlo Edward Zac (b. 2017).
At a talk at the UK Centre for Jewish Life in 2013, Goldsmith said that a Zionist is simply someone who believes that the Jews have a right to have their own state in Israel, and therefore described himself as an "ardent Zionist."
He had a high-profile marriage to Rothschild heiress Kate Emma Rothschild which ended in 2012. The split gained tabloid headlines in the UK after being dubbed the first "Twitter divorce" for playing out on social media via posts on Twitter.
The couple have three children: Iris Annabel (2004–2019), Frank James Amschel (b. 2005) and Isaac Benjamin Victor (b. 2008). On 2 June 2012 it was reported that Kate, a music producer, had been having an extramarital affair with rapper Jay Electronica for a year. Goldsmith, who was arrested for domestic violence, said that he would be filing for divorce.
Ben Goldsmith was described by London's Evening Standard in 2011 as "the quiet force of the Goldsmith family... believed to be a key figure in looking after the family finances."
Goldsmith is chair of the Conservative Environment Network (CEN) which was founded in 2010. The CEN seeks to raise the issue of environmental protection on the agenda of the UK Conservative Party.
Goldsmith is a long-standing funder of the Green Party, including giving £20,000 in 2004 to the UK Green Party and again prior to the 2010 General Election in which Caroline Lucas became Britain's first elected Green Member of Parliament. In subsequent years, Goldsmith has also contributed generously to the UK Conservative Party as well as individual candidates like Conservative MP Michael Gove and the so-called "Notting Hill set of Conservative modernisers".
On 20 September 2003, at St Mary's Church in Bury St Edmunds, he married heiress Kate Emma Rothschild (b. 1982), the daughter of the late Amschel Rothschild and his wife, Anita Patience Guinness, of the Guinness Brewery family. Their wedding was attended by 600 guests, with many blue-blooded and Old Etonian friends, among them Lord Frederick Windsor.
In 2003, Goldsmith became a partner in WHEB, and led the pivot of that company, which had been founded in 1995, from serving as a corporate finance adviser into providing venture capital to the European clean technology sector. WHEB also owned Ruston WHEB, which in 2009 was the leading executive search firm in the European cleantech sector. In 2014 Goldsmith oversaw the demerger of WHEB's private and public equity businesses, with the former rebranding Alpina Partners, before launching his own green-themed investment trust, Menhaden Capital Plc, listed on the main London stock exchange.
In 2003 Goldsmith also helped found the UK Environmental Funders Network (EFN). He described EFN as being "designed to facilitate discussion and foster collaboration" among those interested in funding environmental initiatives, particularly those addressing large-scale problems like global warming. As part of its work EFN gathers information on environmental giving and disseminates it via its "Where Green Grants Went" report.
