Europe's leading digital wealth manager for affluent private clients

Our mission is to level the playing field for affluent investors. For our clients, we create exclusive, transparent and bank-independent access to investment strategies, opportunities and terms previously available only to ultra high-net-worth and institutional investors for a fraction of the traditional minimum investment.

To achieve this, we combine decades of experience with innovative investment technology. In just a few clicks, our clients benefit from attractive opportunities and efficient, paperless processes. In addition to their personal digital dashboard, each client gets a dedicated investment consultant – available by phone, chat or even in person before and after they have become a LIQID client.

LIQID is not a bank

When it comes to their investments, high-net-worth investors do not typically invest with retail banks driven by internal sales targets. Nor do they sign up to run-of-the-mill mutual funds, whose high fees cost them long-term returns. Instead, they rely on independent wealth managers or family offices that act solely in their clients' interests.

As an independent wealth manager, LIQID is regulated by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) and the Bundesbank. Our offer and our spirit are inspired by the best family offices worldwide.
