LGT wins global accolades for its ESG investing and philanthropy offering

At the Wealth for Good Awards held in London on 27 June 2024, LGT was recognised as the best private bank for ESG investing and best provider for philanthropy services globally. At a separate event hosted by Global Finance Magazine, LGT was also designated Best Bank for Sustainability Transparency in Western Europe.


The internationally renowned wealth management magazine WealthBriefing recently held its third-annual Wealth for Good Awards, where it highlighted the world’s best wealth managers in the areas of ESG (environmental, social, governance), impact, diversity and inclusion. LGT’s expertise and holistic offering once again impressed the judges this year, setting it apart from the other strong contenders. The bank was the recipient of the global ESG Investing and Philanthropy Service Offering awards.

Committed to sustainability 

"LGT pursues a holistic ESG approach – not just because of growing client demand for sustainable solutions, but because its management and owner, the Princely Family, have been committed to ensuring a more sustainable future for decades", says the WealthBriefing jury. Christopher Greenwald, Head Sustainable Investing Europe at LGT, says: "Sustainable investments can combine competitive financial returns with a positive impact on society and the environment. With the support of our owner, we have recently significantly expanded our range of sustainable investment solutions to help our clients decarbonise their portfolios."

Having the greatest possible impact

The jury was also impressed with LGT’s philanthropic activities and services: "LGT’s commitment reflects its efforts to have a positive social impact, promote inclusive communities and support innovative solutions for sustainable development." Nina Hoas, Head of LGT Philanthropy Advisory, says: "We have the same high standards of quality and the same level of professionalism in philanthropy as we do in all of our other areas of business. This helps us ensure we have the greatest possible impact through our activities. We are delighted that this approach is being recognised."

An accolade for transparency 

LGT also recently received an award at Global Finance Magazine’s 2024 Sustainable Finance Awards, where the publication recognised financial institutions dedicated to strengthening and developing their sustainable offering for clients.
