Sustainability Thinking about the future is part of our culture

Thinking, acting and investing sustainably is part of our ethos. Our owner, the Princely Family of Liechtenstein, recognised early on how important sustainability is for our environment, society and future. As a family-run and sustainable business, we are committed to the Paris Climate Agreement, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and a sustainable financial sector.

Net zero by 2030 - we have set ourselves this ambitious goal. To achieve it, we are aligning all areas of the company in a sustainable way. For many years, we have been working intensively to optimise our advisory services, our range of products and services and our operations in terms of sustainability. We have already reached some milestones, as these figures from our Impact Report show. But we still have a lot more planned.

Investment exclusions

As a financial institution, we can influence the economy to become more sustainable through our investments - for example, by withdrawing from the financing of socially and ecologically harmful activities of companies and organisations or by entering into an active dialogue and exchange with them. Avoiding such investments increases the financing costs of companies and organisations.

As a sustainable wealth manager, we generally avoid investments that have significant environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks. We also have strict exclusion criteria for thermal coal and controversial weapons.

Memberships and partnerships

We cannot tackle big challenges like climate change, social inequality or political polarisation alone. That is why we work together with organisations that pursue the same goals and exchange ideas with them. Together we can achieve more and change the future.
