Market view and Insights
Thinking, managing and investing sustainably are integral parts of our DNA. Our owner, the Princely Family of Liechtenstein, recognized early on how important sustainability is for our environment, society and future. As a family-run and sustainable private bank, we are committed to the Paris Climate Agreement, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and a sustainable financial sector.
As a sustainable bank, we take our social and corporate responsibility very seriously. We can make an important contribution to solving environmental and social problems and protecting the climate through our own investments and by providing responsible advice. We offer our private clients various options for making their investments more sustainable.

For us, sustainability means managing our company with a sense of social responsibility and with a long-term as well as a holistic perspective.
As a financial institution, we can use our investments to influence the economy to become more sustainable - for example, by withdrawing from the financing of socially and environmentally harmful activities by companies and organizations or by entering into an active dialog and exchange with them. This is because avoiding such investments increases the financing costs of those companies and organizations.
As a sustainable bank, we generally avoid investments that pose significant environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks. We also have strict exclusion criteria for coal and controversial weapons.
Sustainable investments also entail risks. These can be environmental, social or governance risks that affect the value of the investment. With our sustainability framework, we define sustainability risks, identify them at an early stage, and determine how to deal with them in the investment process.
We cannot master major challenges such as climate change, social inequality or political polarization on our own. That's why we cooperate and exchange ideas with organizations that share the same goals. Together we can do more and change the future.
