Responsible partnerships

As a global financial institution, Pictet has been offering investment solutions and a personalised level of service for more than 200 years. Our clients now include some of the world’s largest pension funds, financial institutions, sovereign wealth funds, intermediaries and their clients.

Our structure as part of a privately-held partnership, rooted in Swiss tradition, gives our independent asset management business the freedom to concentrate on the long-term view, without the pressure of external shareholders. This allows us to give you our undivided attention, offer pioneering strategies and deliver successful investment performance.

Our strategic capabilities

We are a focused multi-boutique asset manager. Our partnership structure gives us the solidity that has enabled us to weather the storms of many decades of investing. We do not aspire to be all things to everyone - we focus on where we can add value through active management.

Our expertise is particularly strong in absolute return strategies, thematic equities, emerging markets and multi asset strategies.

We take a responsible approach to investment management, a journey we have been on for more than two decades. We believe we are at the forefront of our industry in incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into our investment approach, actively exercising our rights as investors and engaging with companies, countries and the wider industry.

Furthermore, we are committed to reducing our environmental impact and helping support projects through a tradition of philanthropy.

Our people

Our people embrace Pictet’s entrepreneurial spirit and strive to create innovative investment and client service solutions to meet individual clients’ needs. But in all that we do we remain human, recognising that what transcends all is the relationships between Pictet and its client, which reflects a tradition of 200 years’ personal service.

This humanity extends to how we recruit and diversity and inclusion matter greatly to us and our teams.
