Net assets

LGT generated very significant net asset inflows of CHF15.8bn in the first half of 2023.

This includes an influx of almost CHF6.7bn from a significant pension fund client who contracted LGT Capital Partners to offer management and advisory services for private equity and infrastructure-related investments.

Annualised net new asset growth for the second half of 2023 was almost 9% of assets under management.

With this outcome, to which all areas and locations contributed, LGT maintained its prior periods’ high net new asset growth during the first half of 2023.

Assets under management scaled to CHF305.8bn as of 30 June 2023, surpassing the CHF300bn milestone for the first time in LGT’s history.

This represents a 6% rise in assets under management over year-end 2022, driven by high net asset inflows and favourable market performance.

LGT is confident in its ability to achieve profitable growth in 2023 by using its wealth advice and investment experience.
