LGT Venture Philanthropy

LGT Venture Philanthropy (LGTVP) has a focus on improving the quality of life for less advantaged people in the developing world.  Funded chiefly by the Princely Family of Liechtenstein, LGTVP invests in or donates to organizations that serve people in three core areas: alleviation of human suffering, access to education, and creation of sustainable livelihoods.  Their investees work in Latin America, Africa, India, Southeast Asia, and China, although not all organizations work exclusively in these regions.  Local investment teams are present in each of these regions, as well as in Europe.
