LGT is a leading global provider of alternative investment solutions such as private equity, insurance-linked investments and hedge funds.

Over the years, LGT has built up extensive expertise in alternative investments. Almost half of the Princely strategy used by LGT to invest the wealth of the Princely Family and which is also available to clients consists of alternative investments. This is an unusually high allocation compared to competing strategies.
In this regard, LGT Private Banking relies on the expertise of its sister company LGT Capital Partners, a globally leading asset management company that specializes in alternative investments.
