The centuries-long success story of the Princely House of Liechtenstein is based on diplomatic adroitness and business acumen.
For generations, the Princes of Liechtenstein, as active entrepreneurs, have been consistently guided by a strategy of diversification in building their business activities. This has enabled them to survive numerous economic and political crises over the centuries, even though certain individual companies were severely affected or estates were lost.
Originally engaged in agriculture and forestry, the Princes of Liechtenstein continuously modernized production in their businesses and adapted their corporate portfolio to meet the needs of the time.
Nowadays, in addition to the agricultural businesses, the Princely companies also include a company producing high-quality container-grown forest seedlings, LIECO, and America’s biggest hybrid rice seed producer, RiceTec.
Last but not least, the Princely Collections, one of the most important private collections in the world, also play a significant role in the princely diversification strategy.
H.S.H. Prince Philipp von und zu Liechtenstein, Chairman LGT
"We achieve long-term, sustainable growth in the traditional areas in which we have concentrated for generations and in which we therefore have experience and innovative strength - in agriculture and forestry, wine growing, financial services and, last but not least, in the Princely Collections, comprising masterpieces from five centuries."
