"Succession planning is a very emotional topic. This is why it's important to us to follow a structured approach when passing on wealth, to take account of all aspects and to consult all the parties involved."

Elke Willi, Head of Wealth Planning at LGT Bank (Austria)

Efficient estate planning

Estate planning should be approached in good time and with great caution and should incorporate all assets.

  • These are often located in different countries with different framework conditions.
  • It is also important to take account of the sometimes very different values, objectives and needs of the different family members during the planning and implementation process.

LGT's experts have a wealth of experience in national and international estate planning as well as in the development and formulation of family governance principles. They will also advise you on your charitable or philanthropic projects.

Professionally implement a move across national borders

If you or other members of your family move your residence to another country, your situation can change substantially. You should therefore gear your asset portfolio to the new framework conditions at an early stage, also if it needs to be restructured. LGT has international wealth planning teams in different countries and can provide you with targeted support.
