Value-based entrepreneurship

Liechtenstein’s Princely House has been using its entrepreneurial flair to create and preserve value for centuries.

For generations, the entrepreneurial activities of the Princes of Liechtenstein have been guided by traditional virtues and values such as trustworthiness, respect, integrity and a long-term approach.

A consistent diversification strategy has enabled them to survive numerous economic and political crises and has preserved and grown the family’s fortune down the generations. Originally engaged in agriculture and forestry, the Princes of Liechtenstein have continuously modernized production in their businesses, constantly adapting their corporate portfolio to meet the needs of the time.

Nowadays, in addition to the agricultural businesses, the Princely companies also include the financial group LGT, a company producing high-quality container-grown forest seedlings, LIECO, and America’s biggest hybrid rice seed producer, RiceTec.

Last but not least, the Princely Collections, one of the most important private collections in the world, also play a significant role in the princely diversification strategy.

"We achieve long-term, sustainable growth in the traditional areas in which we have concentrated for generations and in which we therefore have experience and innovative strength - in agriculture and forestry, wine growing, financial services and, last but not least, in the Princely Collections, comprising masterpieces from five centuries."

H.S.H. Prince Philipp von und zu Liechtenstein, Chairman LGT
