Global leader in alternative investments

LGT is a leading global provider of alternative investment solutions such as private equity, insurance-linked investments and hedge funds.

In contrast to traditional investments, many alternative investments - such as private equity solutions, hedge funds, insurance-linked investments, real estate and commodity funds - are not listed and are partially illiquid.

Hurdles and chances of alternative investments

Alternative investments are extremely attractive investments for risk-tolerant investors, but are also difficult and challenging:


  • many private investors do not have access to alternative investments.
  • Alternative investments require very high minimum investment amounts and many demand a higher risk capacity and a long-term investment horizon.
  • To invest successfully, investors must have wide-ranging knowledge of the opportunities and risks associated with alternative investments.
  • Interested investors also need a global network of relationships and local expertise.

In spite of all these hurdles, alternative investments offer important advantages:


  • specifically because they are illiquid and difficult to access, they offer knowledgeable and risk-tolerant investors the opportunity to earn a higher return in the long term than with traditional investments.
  • Another important advantage of alternative asset classes: their yields and price movements often do not correlate or develop totally opposite to those of traditional asset classes. They are therefore excellent instruments for adding diversification to a portfolio.
  • LGT makes it possible for private investors to also invest in alternative investments - and gives them access to the expertise of its investment specialists.
  • At LGT, you can also invest amounts that are comparatively low in the industry.

Extensive alternative investment expertise

Over the years, LGT has built up extensive expertise in alternative investments. Almost half of the Princely strategy used by LGT to invest the wealth of the Princely Family and which is also available to clients consists of alternative investments. This is an unusually high allocation compared to competing strategies.

In this regard, LGT Private Banking relies on the expertise of its sister company LGT Capital Partners, a globally leading asset management company that specializes in alternative investments.
