Previously known as LGT Impact Ventures. LGT Venture Philanthropy's mission is to improve the quality of life of disadvantaged people, contribute to healthy ecosystems, and build resilient, inclusive and prosperous communities.

In 2007, LGT’s CEO H.S.H. Prince Max von und zu Liechtenstein founded LGT Venture Philanthropy. It is an expression of the Princely family’s and LGT’s deep commitment to social accountability and thinking and acting in a responsible and long-term manner. In addition to LGT Group’s broader sustainability efforts, LGT VP supports and invests in organizations and companies that contribute directly to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

A shared vision

LGT Venture Philanthropy’s vision is embedded in LGT’s 90-year-old tradition of creating, preserving and increasing lasting value for all its stakeholders and society at large. Based on this vision, H.S.H. Prince Max von und zu Liechtenstein founded LGT Venture Philanthropy with the mission to

  • increase the quality of life of disadvantaged people
  • build resilient, inclusive and prosperous communities
  • contribute to healthy ecosystems

We realize this mission through an entrepreneurial venture philanthropy approach: We deploy philanthropic growth capital to organizations and companies with effective, innovative and scalable solutions to social and environmental challenges, primarily in Latin America, Africa, India, Southeast Asia and China.
