To improve its business with financial intermediaries, Liechtenstein-based LGT adopted the OpenWealth API standard in partnership with Avaloq and Synpulse8. They will have instant entry to LGT’s investment positions and transaction data due to the new solution, which has an easy-to-use single interface and uniform data quality.

LGT, the Princely House of Liechtenstein’s international private bank, serves as a custodian bank, providing tailored investment solutions, personalised advice, and quick order processing to financial intermediaries such as independent asset managers, multi-family offices, and fund companies.

Avaloq has been supporting LGT with its versatile Avaloq Core Platform for about 20 years, and this latest joint creation is a significant milestone in the two companies’ long-term cooperation.

OpenWealth, a technology and integration expert, has been successfully integrated by LGT and Avaloq, guaranteeing consistent communication between LGT and financial intermediaries.

Moreover, this lowers operational risks and makes it possible to update data more accurately by giving access to investment positions and transaction data in almost real-time.

Markus Werner, member of the executive board at LGT Bank AG, said: “OpenWealth will strengthen our relationships with independent asset managers, family offices and trustees and support our ambitions as a forward-looking custody bank. The standardised solution will ensure that our partners have access to the latest data to better serve their clients. We look forward to strengthening our long-term partnership with Avaloq in the coming years and to continuing our joint development activities for enhanced connectivity with financial intermediaries globally.”
