We offer you comprehensive and tailored services for the optimal depositary of fund assets.
We provide you with advice and support for your project – from planning and structuring through to implementation. Through our work on numerous LGT funds and private label funds, we have long-standing expertise in this area that we can draw on in our collaboration with you. Our specialists analyze your projects in detail in order to develop a project that meets your needs. For every inquiry we receive, we carry out an individual assessment and prepare a tailored offer.
Your assets are in safe hands with us. LGT is very well capitalized and has a high level of liquidity. As one of the few private banks that operates internationally, we regularly have our creditworthiness assessed by independent rating agencies such as S&P and Moody's. Thanks to our strong balance sheet, solid debt ratio and strong earnings power, we have consistently received very high ratings since first being rated in 1996. This offers you, our clients, a high degree of security and stability.
The fund assets held in safekeeping are held with carefully selected sub-depositaries, which we regularly monitor using a multi-stage control process. Our experienced specialists ensure the assets are serviced (account management, corporate actions and collection of dividends, interest and repayments).
In the case of assets not held in safekeeping, we verify the existence of the investments and monitor that they are in the possession of the fund. The experts also check the plausibility of the respective valuations on each valuation date of the fund.
With our two trading centers in Vaduz (7 a.m. to 10 p.m. local time) and in Hong Kong/Singapore (8 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time), we offer you comprehensive trading services 21 hours a day. Our trading experts provide you with excellent investment opportunities in securities, foreign exchange and derivatives worldwide. With our large network of brokers, you have access to over 50 markets around the world. We also offer you special additional services such as direct access trading. Our easy-to-navigate and innovative online banking platform LGT SmartBanking Pro provides you with a structured overview of your assets at all times.
When it comes to our control function, we do not limit ourselves to just the mandatory checks required by the regulator and the law, but also carry out a detailed review of the various NAV components at the same intervals as fund valuation and monitor investment and investor restrictions with the same frequency. In addition, we use our established control system to monitor cash flows and the prompt settlement of transactions on a daily basis. These supplementary analyses and independent checks provide additional security for you and serve to protect investors.
As a transfer agent, we handle the issue and redemption of fund units on the respective acceptance date (incl. payment transaction settlement), ensure that if required, the corresponding subscription form for the fund has been signed and maintain the fund’s unit register.
To provide you with the best possible support and ensure you have a comprehensive overview, we offer you various types of reports and information. You can put together an individual report package according to your wishes and needs. Statements for overall assets, account statements as well as electronic inventory and transaction data deliveries can be generated quickly, flexibly and at any time via our digital online platform LGT SmartBanking Pro.
