In his speech to the 600 guests at the event, which completely sold out, Liechtenstein’s Prime Minister highlighted the innovative capacity of the Liechtenstein financial centre.
Hasler also announced a new law governing the Blockchain economy that should guarantee legal security and promote the innovative strengths of new technologies.
Another speaker at the event was chairman of the board at Credit Suisse, Urs Rohner, who discussed the importance of the Swiss financial centre in the fields of private wealth and asset management.
The Liechtenstein financial centre also benefits from Switzerland’s success in these fields, he said, thanks to its similar framework.
However, the bank president warned that the digital transformation is not yet complete. He said: “Anyone who fails to acknowledge this fact will no longer be around in a couple of years”.
A podium discussion to conclude the event saw Roland Matt, CEO of the Liechtensteinische Landesbank, Fritz Kaiser, executive chairman of Kaiser Partner, and Peter Marxer Junior, chairman of the board at Continor Treuhand Anstalt, consider the future of the Liechtenstein financial centre.
Thanks to its stability and professionalism, the Liechtenstein financial centre remains attractive, according to the banking experts. However, the sector must “better promote” its assets, advised Fritz Kaiser in the statement.
