Sponsor and Supporter information
LGT Vestra is one of the few global wealth management firms in private ownership. Founded in 2008, it is a UK-based partnership between LGT, wholly owned by the Princely Family of Liechtenstein, and the executive partners. The firm's private ownership ensures financial stability, enabling it to take a long-term approach to client relationships and investment decisions. Run by entrepreneurs, LGT Vestra is best placed to understand the issues and the investment perspective of fellow entrepreneurs, guiding them through their financial requirements both before and after exit.
Their fresh approach to wealth management has enabled them to build a strong reputation for openness and transparency, placing the client at the heart of all they do. This has led to a growth in assets under management to £13.8bn as at the end of September 2019. The firm employs 356 staff, of which 53 are partners.
