About LGT

LGT Group is the largest private banking and asset management group in the world that is wholly owned by a single family. The Group benefits from a well-diversified business and economies of scale, with assets of £270bn as at 30th June 2023.

LGT Wealth Management the UK arm of LGT Group was launched in 2008, with a mission to put our clients first and provide a personalised, transparent investment service, designed around your goals and needs.

Following the acquisition of the abrdn discretionary business in 2023, we are here to support the UK Charity sector with a specialist national charity team, that has extensive personal and professional experience working with charities.

We offer a global direct investment approach, which has a 20-year track record. However it is our approach to partnering with charities that really sets us apart. Our breadth of skills allows us to support charities across a wider range of topics that matter to trustees and investment committees.

Our Philosophy

Our work with charities is based around three core principles:

Partnership – Our aim is to build a relationship with you, not complete a transaction with you. We understand that charities want to work with individuals that understand them and that every charity has its own unique circumstances and objectives; one size does not fit all. We do not have relationship managers; we have investment managers. That means the team you meet, is the team making decisions about your investments. As your investment partner, we will take a complete approach to get to know you and your aims, motivations and competing pressures (financial and non-financial).

Purpose – Our goal is to ensure that your investments align with your values, to protect and enhance the reputation of the charity. At a portfolio level, we invest within an authentic responsible investment framework where environmental, social and governance factors are considered alongside financial matters. For us, it is simply sound investing and a source of information to help us identify quality companies. We fundamentally believe that well-run, socially, and environmentally aware organisations are going to deliver the best returns over the long-term.

Performance – Our goal is to maximise the performance of your investments. We construct resilient, global portfolios that are positioned to benefit from long-term structural changes within our world. This multi-generation time horizon helps us avoid the short-term noise and focus on the factors that drive sustainable long-term investment performance. We invest directly, giving the benefits of transparency- you can see what stocks you own. This would be your own portfolio, and not units in a fund, which gives you the flexibility to evolve the portfolio in line with changes in your circumstances or the investment landscape in the future and to ensure all your investment restrictions are applied with integrity. Direct investment also makes best use of your fee budget and gives transparency over the costs of investing.
