LGT Group set to acquire Crestone

Crestone Wealth Management is in the process of being acquired by LGT Group, one of the world’s largest privately-owned wealth managers.

The deal would see Crestone enter into a conditional scheme implementation deed with LGT Group where the group would pay $475 million for 100% of Crestone shares on issue.

Crestone told investors the proposed transaction would enable it to accelerate its growth strategy in Australia and expand the investment opportunities available to Australian high net worth clients. It would also provide them with access to the expertise of the largest privately-owned global private banking and asset management group.
