The Liechtenstein Bankers Association will be holding the 5th International Conference of the Associations of Foreign Banks at the end of November. The event will focus on the responsibility to invest sustainably.

Sustainability is a key topic in the financial sector. The Liechtenstein Bankers Association is one of the international pioneers in this area with the founding of the LIFE Climate Foundation in 2008, which is also supported by the Liechtenstein government, the university and other associations in the financial centre.

The association is now bringing representatives of other financial centres to Vaduz for a discussion on sustainability in the financial sector. Banking executives such as Olivier de Perregaux, CFO of LGT Group, and Kristine Braden from Citi Group, researchers like Andreas Hoepfner from University College Dublin, as well as representatives of international organizations including Thomas Verheye, advisor at the EU Commission, and Jeremy McDaniels, programme manager for sustainable financing at UN Environment, will present on the topic “Accepting responsibility and investing sustainably”.

The event is being organized in collaboration with the associations of foreign banks in Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands with the support of the Association of Liechtenstein Charitable Foundations, the Liechtenstein Investment Fund Association, the Association of Independent Asset Managers in Liechtenstein, and the University of Liechtenstein, among others. The event will take place at the University of Liechtenstein on 30 November and is open to all interested parties.
