Vaduz – Sustainable investments will be the norm in just a few years’ time, says Simon Tribelhorn, director of the Liechtenstein Bankers Association. Long-term thinking is part of Liechtenstein’s DNA, and the financial centre is perfectly equipped for the development, he adds.
Simon Tribelhorn is convinced that sustainable investing is here for the long term. In an interview with finews.ch, the director of the Liechtenstein Bankers Association said that private sector investments are necessary in addition to funds from public sector if we are to meet the development goals of the Paris Agreement. He is confident that there will be enough investors to cover this capital requirement and assumes that sustainable investments will be the norm in just a few years’ time.
Banks in Liechtenstein can play a leading role in sustainable investments. “Thinking in generations – that is long-term, sustainable action – clearly belongs to Liechtenstein’s DNA,” said Tribelhorn. Already today banks such as LGT have earned themselves an “international reputation” in this area and have included sustainable criteria in their investment advice at an early stage, thus giving them a “clear, competitive advantage”.
