Sponsorship at LGT A shared commitment to art, culture and sport

Successful artists and elite athletes have three values in common - ones which have been close to our heart in our investment and finance business for decades: ambition, skill and passion. That is why we promote culture, such as art and classical music, and sport here at LGT Sponsorship. We support young musicians and emerging and elite athletes, and we work with the Princely Collections to make art accessible to all.

The Princely Collections

The princes of Liechtenstein have been passionate art collectors for more than four hundred years. They began to promote the fine arts in the Baroque era - and still do so to this day. As ambitious and consistent collectors, they have built one of the world's most important private collections of European art. The more than 30 000 works include over 1 600 paintings and 700 sculptures. The Princely Collections include masterpieces from the early Renaissance through to Austrian Romanticism, alongside ivory pieces, enamelware, prints, furniture, pietra dura work, porcelain, ceremonial weapons, and tapestries that once adorned the family's castles and palaces.

LGT Young Soloists

The Princely House of Liechtenstein has a long tradition of supporting promising musicians. Princess Maria Josepha Hermengilde von Liechtenstein was a great patron of Joseph Haydn, who thanked her for her support by composing five masses in her honor. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart also composed a wind serenade for Prince Alois I von Liechtenstein.

We continue this tradition to this day, supporting young string musicians through LGT Sponsorship. The LGT Young Soloists are aged between 12 and 23 years. They perform together, learn from each other and gain valuable experience for their careers in large orchestras and as soloists. They were the first youth orchestra to record albums for the prestigious RCA Red Seal classical label.

Other LGT Sponsorship activities

In addition to visual arts and music, we also support innovative conferences and sports through our sponsorship program. In sport, we do not just focus on the elite; our partnerships also promote young talent and mass participation.

Curling calls for skill and accuracy

Curling

Curling is one of the oldest sports, sometimes referred to as "chess on ice". Skill and accuracy are more important than power and speed. LGT has sponsored major competitions, such as the annual European and World Championships, for over a decade.

Skiing requires commitment, discipline, assertiveness and passion

Alpin skiing

Hanni Wenzel, Marco Büchel and Tina Weirather have numbered among the world's top skiers. To foster great talent in such a small country, LGT supports the Liechtenstein Ski Association's work with young talents. It also supports the sport at mass-participation level through its long-standing cooperation with Bergbahnen Malbun.

Ice hockey is one of the most popular team sports in Europe

Ice hockey

The 32 top-level teams making up the Champions Hockey League compete for the most coveted title in European club ice hockey. Although teamwork is crucial in hockey, it is often an individual player's touch of class that makes the crucial difference. As a CHL sponsor, we reward this by presenting awards to the top scorer and most valuable player.

Tonhalle Orchester Zürich

Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich

Since 1868, the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich has been delighting classical music lovers all over the world - the musicians have performed in over 100 cities in more than 30 countries and won the European Culture Prize 2022. As main sponsor, we support the orchestra on its musical journey.
