In the financial year 2021 Austria's financial sector was faced with a persistently challenging situation due to the corona pandemic. Nevertheless LLB Österreich successfully held its ground and broke its own records not only in terms of client assets under management but also in terms of its operating result: With EUR 33 billion of client assets under management as at 31 December 2021 the renowned bank, whose diversified business model is based on asset management and advisory services, custodian banking and investment funds, as well as real estate, reached a historic record high. The profit on ordinary activities increased by 52 per cent to EUR 21.2 million (group level). Profit after tax amounted to EUR 14.7 million.

Our teams have once again proved their expertise in advisory services for our clients with outstanding professionalism. We are delighted with these excellent figures. Compared to the result achieved in the previous year, which was a very good one indeed, this is an increase of approximately 26 per cent. Growth is a key aspect of our strategy and this financial result nicely confirms our business philosophy”
