Foreign investors interested in the investment funds industry in Liechtenstein should know that this sector remains one of the most important in the economy of the country, according to the Liechtenstein Fund Industry Association. The most recent numbers indicate the third quarter (Q3) of 2017 was the best for the investments fund sector in the Principality. If you want to set up an investment fund, our company formation agents in Liechtenstein can explain the legal requirements.
Liechtenstein is a very appreciated investment funds destination in Europe and many first-time investors are setting up investment funds here because of the legislation which is harmonized with the European legislation. This the main reason why in Q3 of 2017 the highest growth was brought by newly invested money, according to the Association. These investments were made in the second quarter of the year. Also, the clients’ assets registered one of the highest values in the last few years.
The total value of the assets held by Liechtenstein investment funds were worth 879,25 million Swiss francs in Q3 compared to the 841,59 million Swiss francs generated in Q2.
The assets administered by asset managers reached 51,84 billion francs which means a nearly 40% growth in the last 3 years.
