LGT received three global awards at the WealthBriefing Wealth for Good Awards 2023: Best Bank for Sustainability, Best Bank for ESG Thought Leadership and Best Sustainability Offering (Investments). In addition to the WealthBriefing awards, it was also the recipient of Global Finance Magazine’s Outstanding Leadership in Sustainability Transparency award.
This year, WealthBriefing, a renowned financial magazine, for the second time recognised the world’s best wealth managers in the areas of ESG (environmental, social, governance), impact, and diversity and inclusion. Having already taken the top spot in several categories in 2022, LGT once again impressed the jury this year with its expertise and commitment, and received three awards at the Wealth for Good Awards 2023. It was awarded Best Bank for Sustainability and Best Bank Sustainability Offering (Investments). It was also designated Best Bank for ESG Thought Leadership.
"LGT carries a legacy of social and philanthropic commitment. With its submission, it transparently demonstrated how it creates long-term value for all stakeholders", said the WealthBriefing jury, which consisted of private bankers and independent advisors. "We were also impressed by its comprehensive offering and sustainability reporting."
Olivier de Perregaux, CEO LGT Private Banking: "We see the financial sector’s path to a sustainable future not only as a challenge, but also as an opportunity – for us and for our clients. Thanks to our early strategic focus on this important area, we’ve been able to achieve a great deal already, and are now benefitting from our pioneering role. We are well positioned to stay at the forefront of the developments in the area of sustainability and generate added value for all of our stakeholders."
LGT recently also received an award from the internationally renowned Global Finance Magazine. At its Sustainable Finance Awards, the magazine recognises financial institutions that are committed to strengthening and expanding their sustainable offering for clients. This year, LGT received the Outstanding Leadership in Sustainability Transparency award for Western Europe.
"If we want to press ahead with the decarbonisation of our industry, we need more than just good solutions and instruments – we also need greater transparency for investors", says Olivier de Perregaux. "That’s why we’ve developed our LGT Sustainability Rating, for example, which provides investors with important guidance and helps them make their portfolios more sustainable. We’re very pleased that our efforts are being noticed. Awards such as these strengthen our resolve to continue on this path."
