Liechtenstein fund management companies offer an attractive range of services both for investors and for promoters, i.e., for companies wanting to set up a fund.
Investors benefit from Liechtenstein's EEA membership, which means that the same rights and duties apply in Liechtenstein as in all EU member states, thus guaranteeing the same legal certainty for investors. Beyond this, strict rules monitored by the Financial Market Authority and accredited auditors attach the highest priority to investor protection. Liechtenstein funds are especially attractive also thanks to Liechtenstein tax law. The modern, internationally compatible and European-compliant Liechtenstein Tax Act that entered into force in 2011 does not levy a tax on income from the assets under management of investment funds in Liechtenstein. The Swiss franc as the official currency of Liechtenstein offers investors additional, especially attractive investment options.
For wealthy private clients, wealthy families, and interest groups, funds for qualified investors represent a form of asset structuring that is especially attractive in terms of costs and taxes. For these investor groups, fund solutions individually tailored to special requirements can be developed.
Private label funds are traditionally associated with the Liechtenstein fund center.Setting up an investment fund in Liechtenstein, fund promoters will find numerous fund management companies with great expertise and many years of experience which are able to competently implement both classical and alternative investment strategies into funds. Additionally, promoters benefit from the liberal economic policy of the country and from extraordinarily fast and efficient licensing processes. Thanks to Liechtenstein's membership in the EEA, the fund industry is guaranteed free access to the European single market.
