LGT Vestra completes 725 mile ‘Prince to Prince’ bike ride for The Prince’s Trust

28 September 2016

Over 6 gruelling days, eight LGT Vestra cyclists connected Buckingham Palace to the Vaduz Castle in Liechtenstein with a 725 mile cycle to fundraise for the firm’s charity partner, The Prince’s Trust. 

The ride started at 5.30am on Sunday 18th September with the first day seeing the team complete 124 miles to Calais. The following days took them through France and Germany, clocking up 614 miles in five days. 

LGT CEO, H.S.H. Prince Max von und zu Liechtenstein and a team of LGT cyclists joined the group for the final day, completing the 111 miles to reach the final destination of Vaduz Castle in Liechtenstein, home of the Princely Family of Liechtenstein. David Scott, LGT Vestra Chairman joined the support team for the final day to see the cyclists over the finishing line. 

LGT Vestra cyclist Andrew Archer said, “We are delighted to have completed the challenge of cycling from London to Liechtenstein in support of the Prince’s Trust and were especially pleased to share the last day with H.S.H. Prince Max von und zu Liechtenstein and our LGT colleagues. Despite a few punctures and many sore limbs, the team were in great spirits throughout and supported each other to the end.”

What was the cycle ride for?
On 17 June 2016, Vestra Wealth entered into partnership with LGT, the leading private banking and asset management group, wholly owned by the Princely Family of Liechtenstein and have subsequently been renamed LGT Vestra LLP. The cycling challenge celebrated the beginning of this new partnership and helped to raise funds for LGT Vestra’s new charity partner, The Prince’s Trust.
