Stable, long-term ownership is a core prerequisite for durable partnerships with clients, supported by a distinctive corporate culture
Over the last 24 years, LGT Capital Partners has become a leading global alternative investment specialist. Learn more about our investment philosophy and culture.
LGT Capital Partners has forged client relationships with more than 600 institutions, including many in long-term partnerships.
Our success in building and retaining relationships is partly driven by the heritage of stable ownership and long-term investment perspective.
We are part of the LGT Group, one of the largest privately owned asset management and private banking groups in the world, with over 4,000 staff in 24 locations worldwide.
LGT has been a principal investor in alternative assets since 1994 and has offered client programs in hedge funds since 1996 and private equity since 1997.
We operate as a dedicated multi-alternatives platform, acting as a principal investor on behalf of the Princely endowment portfolio, as well as focussing on achieving attractive long-term risk/return profiles for clients.
Partnership approach includes knowledge-sharing
Our partnership approach to client service often includes a significant knowledge-sharing dimension, e.g. conducting workshops on specific aspects of investing to help clients sharpen their investment expertise.
In addition, our regular two-day Alternative Investment Conference, explores the latest developments in alternative investing and how they can be applied within an institutional asset liability framework.
Long-term thinking as foundation of team culture
Long-term thinking is also the foundation of our distinctive team culture, which emphasizes putting clients’ interests first.
This is reinforced by our staff co-investment plan, which allows and obliges all team members to invest in our own investment programs thus facilitating alignment of interest.
We believe that investment success comes from the hard and disciplined work of the whole team, not just a few individuals.
"Growing with our investors in long-term quality relationships is a key measure of success for us."
