LGT clients have the exclusive opportunity to invest according to the same strategy as the Princely Family of Liechtenstein.
The Princely Family of Liechtenstein invest their assets according to the Princely strategy. LGT gives you the exclusive opportunity of investing in agreement with the same strategy.
LGT has been managing the Princely strategy for more than 22 years. The strategy has an above-average allocation to alternative investments - this focus means that it is one of only a few investment concepts in the world accessible to private investors that apply a combination of traditional and alternative investments.
The Princely strategy, which currently comprises around USD 17 billion, aims to achieve sustainable and long-term asset growth with moderate volatility. LGT has developed its own strategic asset allocation method - focus is placed on scenario planning, diversification across all investable markets globally, and a long-term investment horizon. In this respect, the strategy is similar to the investment concepts of renowned US endowment funds such as Harvard, Yale and Princeton.
Institutions and families who have built up and preserved their wealth over generations know the importance of diversification - they have survived wars, inflation, economic crises and sometimes even the confiscation of their assets. The Princely Family also belongs to this group. As a family-run company, LGT is convinced that diversification is an essential concept for long-term investors.
Some twenty years ago, the Princely Family earned around USD 1 billion from the sale of a company. The Family wanted to invest this capital as well as possible, and instructed LGT to develop an innovative investment strategy. This was the beginning of the Princely strategy.
About a year after its successful launch, the Princely strategy was also made available to clients and employees. This co-investment principle means that the Princely Family, the clients and the employees all have the same objectives and are all in the same boat.
H.S.H. Prince Max von und zu Liechtenstein, Chairman LGT
"The Princely strategy stands for an investment credo that is important to my family. This goes hand in hand with a long-term perspective, good diversification and a disciplined approach"
