Liechtenstein financial centre

We are part of an attractive financial centre

Specialised and economically stable with a strong international network: the financial centre of the principality. Liechtenstein is one of the few countries in the world with an AAA rating. Our home base is part of the European Economic Area (EEA), providing us with full market access to the European single market. In addition, Liechtenstein traditionally maintains a very close relationship with Switzerland and is part of a customs and currency union with the Confederation. As a result, Liechtenstein-based banks also have unlimited access to Switzerland.

Further aspects that characterise the Liechtenstein financial centre:

  • The Financial Market Authority monitors strict regulation
    The finance market regulations are based on European law. The Financial Market Authority (FMA) Liechtenstein ensures that all market participants comply with national and international standards. The FMA is internationally integrated and closely affiliated with the European authorities.
  • Constitutional principles are upheld
    The solid financial policy (with annual surpluses) and the clear legal and tax frameworks ensure extremely stable conditions in economically liberal Liechtenstein.
  • Tax-compliant financial centre stakeholders
    Liechtenstein recognises international and European standards of tax cooperation and implements them strictly.
  • Openness to blockchain technology
    The Blockchain Act has been in force in Liechtenstein since 2020. The principality was thus the first country in the world to issue a comprehensive, clear framework law for this new technology. Liechtenstein thereby also ensures a high level of legal certainty in this area – for you and for your clients.
