LGT, the private banking and asset management group owned by Princely Family of Liechtenstein, has bought Aspada from the Soros Economic Development Fund.

An India-focused impact investment fund, Aspada manages more than $100m in assets.

The deal, whose financial terms were not revealed, is aimed at expanding LGT’s impact investing platform LGT Lightstone.

It involves the takeover of Aspada’s management organisation and a significant majority position of its portfolio.

LGT’s future investments in India will now be carried out under the LGT Lightstone Aspada brand.

Aspada managing partner Kartik Srivatsa said: “In LGT and Prince Max we have found an aligned and committed long-term partner not only for building out the next phase of Aspada’s evolution in India, but also for co-creating a distinctive global platform that can be the vanguard of impact investing.”
