Tradition and quality for more than 60 years
Founded in 1956 in Vaduz, Liechtenstein, VP Bank has grown steadily from a friendly local bank to become a globally active financial services enterprise.
The founder of VP Bank, Guido Feger, was a successful entrepreneur and one of Liechtenstein’s most highly regarded fiduciaries. Right from the start, he demonstrated innovation, competence and courage, while never veering from the fundamental principles of client orientation and financial security. These tenets have been resolutely upheld for six decades.
To this very day, each and every employee of VP Bank Group lays claim to the ethos of quality. A number of international awards for the quality of the Bank’s client advice and ancillary services, as well as for its competence in transaction processing, attest to this pronounced quality consciousness.
In 1983, VP Bank became Liechtenstein’s first exchange-listed company, and ever since then it has been present in the international banking system via the euro money market. The philanthropic activities of VP Bank’s founder have been continued by its major shareholder, "Stiftung Fürstl. Kommerzienrat Guido Feger" foundation.
