What are private label funds?

Private label funds are funds that are designed in accordance with your wishes. They are set up under Liechtenstein or EU law and are assigned the name -  or label - chosen by you, and provide the same level of investor protection as public funds. Depending on how your fund is designed, and upon request, we can offer a range of related services, including management of the fund, acting as the custodian bank, or fund administration.

  • Security
  • Transparency
  • Efficiency
  • Attractive taxation
  • Private label funds provide the same level of investor protection as publicly distributed funds.
  • The fund is a segregated class fund which means that it will not be affected if the administration company becomes insolvent.
  • The interests of investors in private label funds are aligned with those of LGT, provided that LGT is not the fund’s asset manager.
  • Investment guidelines are reviewed on a completely independent basis.
  • The change in the value of the private label fund’s assets can be tracked by calculating the NAV on a regular basis and is notified to investors in factsheets, semi-annual and annual reports, in line with client requirements. Assets at third-party custodians may be consolidated using shadow accounting.
  • Flexibility: transfer of assets and allocation to families, centralized management of (family) assets.
  • Co-investors are possible at all times.
  • Subject to the NAV calculation, virtually all asset classes can be brought into an alternative investment fund (AIF).
  • No management or administrative effort required by the client, regulatory requirements are met by the fund, SPOC, i.e. single point of contact for the client.
  • Investment funds in Liechtenstein are exempt from tax (no stamp duty and no VAT).
  • One line in the tax declaration for the client.
  • Netting of income and losses.
  • Tax deferral effects.
  • No time limit on losses carried forward.
