Quality & Innovation strength
Good access to specialists, first-class training and further education opportunities, high innovative ability and efficiency as well as proven expertise in trendsetting technologies come together in the Liechtenstein financial centre.
As a place to do business, Liechtenstein offers good conditions for reliable retention of domestic and foreign employees, specialists and managers. A generally high quality of life, a wide range of cultural activities at an international level and a variety of training and further education opportunities up to university level contribute towards this. This makes Liechtenstein an attractive place to work, not only for locals, but also for specialists and skilled workers from Switzerland, Austria and Germany.
In addition, the digital revolution and in particular new financial technologies are great innovation drivers for the international financial sector. Here too, the Liechtenstein financial centre is positioning itself at the forefront of the competition for the best FinTech solutions. Investors are supported by the government and Liechtenstein’s Financial Market Authority (FMA), which are promoting innovations in the FinTech field through various innovations. The FMA’s Regulatory Laboratory serves as a port-of-call for start-ups and established financial services providers who have questions relating to the FinTech field. The FMA is guided by the principle that regulations must comply with European standards and must be used and configured so that innovative business models can be realised, while ensuring client protection.
Through its “Innovation Clubs” the government also offers a state innovation process for improving economic operating conditions. If necessary, amendments of statutory and in particular of supervisory operating conditions can be reviewed and proposed for implementation.
