LGT launches its direct impact investing activities under “Lightrock”
LGT, the international private banking and asset management group owned by the Princely House of Liechtenstein, has integrated its direct impact investing activities into a newly formed and branded entity, Lightrock, a global private equity partnership that seeks to achieve financial as well as societal and environmental returns. The formation and spin-off follows LGT’s announcement last year to give its three business units, which also include LGT Private Banking and LGT Capital Partners, greater autonomy. Lightrock, with a global team of more than 55 investment professionals led by Pal Erik Sjatil as the new CEO, will retain a close relationship with LGT Private Banking, inviting its private clients as well as other investors to co-invest alongside the Princely House of Liechtenstein that has launched this initiative under the leadership of its Chairman H.S.H. Prince Max von und zu Liechtenstein.
