Liechtenstein, a truly unique jurisdiction
Exceptional / highest political and economic stability
Although one of the smallest states in the world, Liechtenstein is in many ways a country of superlatives. Few countries in the world are characterised above all thanks to the special form of government, a constitutional monarchy, by such a high degree of political stability and continuity. This is based on a stable social, legal and economic system, and has one of the lowest crime rates on the planet. Thanks to its stability, dependability and security, Liechtenstein has for almost 100 years been an ideal location for safeguarding and protecting assets.
One of only 6 states in the world with the highest country rating
Thanks to its political stability and the Swiss franc as currency, Liechtenstein is one of only six countries in the world that has been awarded the highest possible "AAA" rating by Standard & Poor's in combination with the maximum Trade Economics Credit Rating (TE Rating) of 100.
One of only 5 dept-free states in the world
At around 24%, Liechtenstein's public spending ratio (state expenditure in relation to GDP) is far below the average for OECD member states (approximately 41%) as well as for the Eurozone (some 49%). Thanks to cautious and foresighted budgetary policies, Liechtenstein is one of only five debt-free states in the world.
International network – and simultaneously a member of 2 economic areas
Liechtenstein, located at the heart of Europe and a member of the United Nations, enjoys a very special status because it is simultaneously part of two different economic areas. As a member of the European Economic Area (EEA) it has free access to the European market, while at the same time Liechtenstein and Switzerland have also formed a customs and currency union since 1923. This is why the strong and stable Swiss franc is Liechtenstein's national currency. Liechtenstein is moreover a member of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) as well as of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), and has almost 30 free trade treaties with access to around 40 states.
Innovative / dynamic fintech center
Liechtenstein is a small state with a total of only 38,000 inhabitants. Its compact dimensions enable Liechtenstein to respond significantly faster and more flexibly to new circumstances and possible opportunities than other states. Liechtenstein was also quick to spot the significance and potential of fintech, and established the necessary groundwork. Because of its very good infrastructure, extremely short decision-making channels, extensive know-how, direct and quick access to regulators and the clear political determination to promote fintech, Liechtenstein offers outstanding opportunities for financial innovations.
Attractive / Ideal philanthropy center
In recent years, Liechtenstein has established itself as a particularly attractive philanthropy centre. Its membership of the European Economic Area means that common benefit organisations based in Liechtenstein are automatically recognised in the member states of the European Union. In particular due to the well-functioning, yet nevertheless uncomplicated statutory foundation provisions, in recent years many philanthropists have taken the decision to set up their common benefit organisations in Liechtenstein.
