Stable ownership structure
The State of Liechtenstein is the main shareholder and owns 17.7 million of the 30.8 million LLB shares (57.5% of the share capital). The LLB enjoys a state guarantee. Liechtenstein guarantees savings deposits at the Landesbank and the Landesbank's medium-term notes. This is set out in the Law of 21 October 1992 on the Liechtensteinische Landesbank (LLB Act). The Principality of Liechtenstein is one of only twelve countries worldwide with a AAA rating.
Excellent Moody's rating
The Liechtensteinische Landesbank is rated by the Moody's agency. Our deposit rating is Aa2, underscoring the stability and financial strength of the LLB. With this rating, we are in the premier league of all banks in Liechtenstein and Switzerland, significantly above the average of European financial institutions. More information on the ranking is available here.
The history of the Liechtensteinische Landesbank began on 5 December 1861. Its establishment as the "Zins- und Credit-Landes-Anstalt im souverainen Fürstenthume Liechtenstein" (National Interest and Credit Institution in the Sovereign Principality of Liechtenstein) stood at the beginning of all the reforms that followed with the first Liechtenstein Constitution of 1862. These reforms launched the development of Liechtenstein into a modern business location.
The close ties to Switzerland and the adoption of the stable Swiss Franc as the national currency paved the way to success. After the Second World War, we transformed from a rural savings and mortgage bank into a universal bank with international clients. With an emphasis on stability and security, the Liechtensteinische Landesbank will always continue under the aegis of our values – for our country, the region, the people, and the economy.
