Liechtensteinische Landesbank AG

Founded in 1861, Liechtensteinische Landesbank with $23 billion in assets under management, gets bragging rights to calling itself the oldest bank in Liechtenstein. Like the other two banks visited, its head office straddles the main (and only) thoroughfare through downtown Vaduz.

The head office is a six-story building built in the 1950's and added on to in 1996. Cyrill Sele, General Secretary, answers my questions. About 120 employees work here. Employees have to pay for parking, it's three minutes to the nearest freeway, smoking isn't allowed in the offices and the company's art collection is described as "modern". I can't see CEO Josef Fehr's fifth floor office because "he's busy". The oval-shaped table in the boardroom seats 16 and I count one real plant. Any employee discounts? On home loans employees enjoy a ½% discount and a ½% more on deposits.
