LGT Vestra is one of the few global wealth management firms in private ownership. Founded in 2008, it is a UK-based partnership between LGT, wholly owned by the Princely Family of Liechtenstein, and the executive partners. The private ownership ensures financial stability which enables it to adopt a long-term approach to client relationships and investment decisions. As the firm is run by entrepreneurs, it is best placed to understand the issues and the investment perspective of fellow entrepreneurs and thus guide them through their financial requirements both before and after exit.
Their fresh approach to wealth management, by refusing to take third party commissions enabled them to build a strong reputation for openness and transparency. This has led to a growth in assets under management to £8.3billion at the end of April 2017. It employs 240 members of staff and has 40 partners.
