About us / Organisation LAFV / Association
Liechtenstein Investment Fund Association

The Liechtenstein Investment Fund Association (Liechtensteinischer Anlagefondsverband, LAFV) was established in September 2000 and is the official representative body of the Liechtenstein fund industry. Its members are all UCITS management companies, most of the alternative investment fund managers (AIFM) and other financial service providers, such as, for example custodian banks, law firms, auditing firms, specialised IT providers or providers of training and education.
The LAFV is represented by a board of directors, composed of the following persons: Alexander Boss (President), Bruno Schranz (Vice President), Dr. Martin Jonasch, Thomas Marte, Raimond Schuster and Alois Wille.

The LAFV takes on the task to support the development of Liechtenstein as a location for investment funds, and thereby to further improve Liechtenstein’s attractiveness for investment fund providers and investors. This should be achieved in particular through active development and demand-oriented expansion of the fund legislation. Supporting their members as well as representing interests of the fund industry and the investment fund location itself, both domestically and abroad, are further tasks of the association.

Particular focus is made concerning the development and management of relationships to governmental and supervisory authorities, existing unions and associations, and the interest groups of the financial services sector, in order to coordinate mutual interests and to utilise synergies. The fact that up to this point nearly all fund companies have joined the LAFV and the very close cooperation with the FMA of Liechtenstein, allows the LAFV to strongly represent the interests of its members in Liechtenstein as an investment fund location very well.
