Ahead is a young and innovative financial service provider based in Vaduz – the capital of the principality of Liechtenstein. Our main attention is drawn to our professional clients to who we offer specialised services around the fund business and asset management.
In the area of fund business we are specialised in launching and administrating mutual funds. We see ourselves as an interface between our professional clients, who usually act as fund manager, and the other participants of the fund project. Our main strength is the independence of one single custodian bank which enables us to act exclusively in the interest of our client.

Ahead Wealth Solutions AG has become the first Liechtenstein investment fund management company to receive authorisation from the Liechtenstein FMA (Financial Market Authority) under the new Law on Certain Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (shortened to “UCITS Act” or “UCITSA”). As a result of its authorisation by the FMA, Ahead is permitted to establish and administer investment funds directly in all 30 European Economic Area (EEA) member states. The previous authorisation applied only to Liechtenstein. In addition, Ahead is now permitted to make investment funds available for public distribution within the EEA and to offer them for purchase by investors – without further formalities or authorisations!

In the area of asset management we cooperate with specialists who support us with their investment know-how. Furthermore we offer our institutional partners a wide range of services in relation to the formation and management of an asset management company.

We would be pleased if we are also able to convince you of our company philosophy “The average gives the world its substance, the exceptional its value“ (Oscar Wilde). Although – or just because of – most of our services are offered nationally and internationally through many competitors, we are convinced that we are able to stand out from the crowd through our understanding of service and quality - the "Ahead Add-ons".
