INTERNATIONAL - FINANCIAL SERVICES BODY OF THE YEAR, LIECHTENSTEIN BANKERS ASSOCIATION (LBA)

We are delighted and honoured to receive this year’s ACQ award as International financial services body of the year for the second time in a row. It confirms that our daily efforts and the high standards that we set ourselves as an association and a service provider for our members, as well as our efforts to advance Liechtenstein as a banking and financial centre, are bearing fruit. The award is a fantastic recognition of our amazing team and the result of our hard work. At the same time it is an incentive for us to continue pursuing the path we have taken and the professionalisation of the Bankers Association as an innovative, modern and dynamic trade association. Established in 1969, the Liechtenstein Bankers Association is the voice of the banks operating in and out of Liechtenstein. Since its foundation, the association has been safeguarding the interests of its member banks towards the government, the authorities, the public, and national as well as international organisations and federations, and has coordinated the joint activities of its members. The Board is the governing body and consists of the Chairman and representatives of six member banks. The Association is managed by the secretariat leaded by the CEO. The LBA stands for market economy-based principles and for an efficient financial centre in Liechtenstein and in Europe with the highest standards. It understands itself as a service provider to its member banks. In its work the LBA is guided by openness, objectivity and reliability. By signing the ICMA Private Wealth Management Charter of Quality on a self-regulatory level and representing the whole Liechtenstein banking center, the LBA demonstrates the clear commitment to the highest common international standards of quality, compliance and good market practice which are as well the part of the guiding principles of the longterm strategy for the Liechtenstein banking centre set out in the Roadmap 2020.
