The financial centre is a very important sector for Liechtenstein’s prosperity. It has an international orientation and generates about 24% of GDP, contributes about 40% to tax revenue, and offers about 6,000 jobs to well-qualified employees.
Since 2010, Liechtenstein and its financial centre have repositioned themselves strategically and undergone an unparalleled transformation. The first phase of the new strategy (Roadmap 2015) was developed in 2010 with the goal of implementing the Liechtenstein Declaration on tax compliance and a clear commitment to the automatic exchange of information.
In 2016, the Liechtenstein banks formulated the next phase of the strategy, Roadmap 2020, with a view to the future. The vision is that Liechtenstein will position itself as a respected financial centre with sustainable and stable operations at the heart of Europe. Liechtenstein is to distinguish itself by its high level of innovation, efficiency, and proven expertise in the field of wealth management. Its demanding, internationally-oriented client base is to receive holistic solutions, tailor-made products, and outstanding services. Quality, stability, and sustainability are the strategic cornerstones of the Roadmap 2020. Based on this roadmap, growth opportunities are being generated for the key business sectors, and relevant fields of action, measures, and concerns are being formulated.
