LGT at a glance

As the family office of the Princely Family of Liechtenstein, we have a great deal of experience in managing family assets. This expertise is also the basis for how we work with our clients. We combine our long-established services in Private Banking and Asset Management with additional services, for example in the field of Philanthropy.

Conservative balance sheet - financial stability

LGT has a healthy balance sheet, high liquidity and solid capitalization. Our equity capital is well above legal requirements and reflects the financial strength of our company in international comparison. We are one of the few international private banks that has its creditworthiness assessed by independent rating agencies such as Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s and we consistently receive very high scores.
