Liechtenstein’s rating for investments is AAA for 2016

Liechtenstein was last assessed at the end of 2015 when the report on the Principality’s economy was prepared for 2016. All three major rating agencies Fitch, Moody’s and Standard and Poor’s have issued good prospect for Liechtenstein. Standard and Poor’s rated Liechtenstein with AAA and a stable outlook for this year. The same rating was given by Moody’s. Also, for the first time after a long period Liechtenstein was the country to obtain a AAA rating from Standard and Poor’s, which is the highest rating a country can receive from this agency.

These ratings have had a major impact on Liechtenstein’s economy this year which have led to a great number of companies registered in the Principality.
