Our financing offering

Our financing solutions round off our private banking offering for you. Increase your financial flexibility.

Lombard loan

The LGT Lombard loan gives you access to additional liquidity at short notice when you pledge your assets held with us as collateral.

We grant you a variable credit limit that you can use to purchase securities or for any other liquidity needs. The maximum credit limit is determined by the lending value of your securities pledged as collateral, as calculated by us. A low interest rate for your LGT Lombard loan is possible for drawdowns in the form of fixed advances.

Mortgage and Real Estate Credit Act (HIKG)

As an EEA member state, Liechtenstein is transposing the European Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD) adopted on 4 February 2014 (Directive 2014/17/EU) into national law with effect from 1 April 2021.

The Mortgage and Real Estate Credit Act (HIKG) governs credit agreements for individuals (consumers) relating to residential immovable property for the purpose of:

  • acquiring or retaining property rights for land or an existing or projected building.
  • acquiring a consumer good (e.g. a car) secured by a mortgage or comparable collateral.

If your existing mortgage financing with LGT Bank Ltd. continues unchanged, no revision will be required.

Additional information can be found on the website of the Liechtenstein Bankers Association here. Should you have any further questions, please contact your relationship manager. 

The website of the Bankers Association also contains a factsheet, which provides important information in the event of payment difficulties (here).

The LGT Private Banking mortgage offers flexible, straightforward real estate financing in Liechtenstein and Switzerland. No expensive interest rate hedge is required, as each time your mortgage comes up for renewal you are free to choose another form (variable-rate or fixed-rate).


You are free to choose what form your mortgage takes and determine the interest rate mix for your LGT Private Banking mortgage in line with your expectations.

  • Variable-rate mortgage: the interest rate changes in line with trends on the money and capital markets.
  • Fixed-rate mortgage: the interest rate remains unchanged over the agreed term (one to ten years).
  • SARON Fix mortgage: the interest rate remains unchanged over the agreed term (1 or 3 months).


Unlike structured mortgage products, the LGT Private Banking mortgage is as straightforward and transparent as can be. This mortgage has no fixed term so there is no need for an expensive interest rate hedge.


Within the context of your overall client relationship, our mortgage specialists develop financing solutions adapted to your needs. The individual tranches of the LGT Private Banking mortgage may have set terms, but your overall mortgage does not.

With the LGT Philanthropy mortgage, you finance your real estate assets while supporting the less fortunate at the same time. This innovative product draws on LGT’s expertise in the credit and philanthropy sectors. The mortgage allows clients and the bank to make a joint contribution towards improving living conditions in less well developed regions of the world.

The mortgage allows you to support a project of your choice from LGT Venture Philanthropy. You will be kept up to date on developments on a regular basis. The following projects are available as part of the LGT Philanthropy mortgage:

Aangan Trust, Mumbai (India)

mothers2mothers, Cape Town (South Africa)


Conditions of the LGT Philanthropy mortgage

New and existing first mortgages on residential buildings are eligible. The LGT Philanthropy mortgage offer applies to both variable and fixed-rate mortgages or their tranches and is presently only available within Liechtenstein.

The rate of interest for the LGT Philanthropy mortgage consists of part financing and part "interest on the donation" of 0.125%. LGT matches your donation to the project - which means that those in need benefit twofold. It also covers the full amount of any administration costs incurred by the philanthropic projects.

With the LGT Environmental mortgage, we can support your commitment to sustainable development and efficient use of natural resources - for newly built properties and renovations in Liechtenstein with a Minergie certificate.


  • You receive a one-off bonus immediately after having obtained the definitive Minergie certificate and having used a mortgage loan in full.
  • The immediate bonus for newly built or renovated properties is up to CHF 10 000.
  • If you take the decision today to build sustainably, you will benefit in more ways than one: more economical use of resources, a greater level of living comfort and financing on preferential terms.



  • For newly built properties with a Minergie certificate, the bonus is 2%,
    i.e. CHF 2 000 per CHF 100 000 mortgage (up to a maximum of CHF 500 000 = maximum bonus: CHF 10 000).
  • For renovations with a Minergie certificate, the bonus is 1%,
    i.e. CHF 1 000 per CHF 100 000 mortgage (up to a maximum of CHF 500 000 = maximum bonus: CHF 5 000).
  • The mortgage must remain with LGT for at least five years.
