Our PSU framework drives robust investment decisions

We believe consistently making the right asset allocation decision is crucial in generating returns.

The Pictet AM Strategy Unit (PSU) is an investment framework that comprises all our investment managers, strategists and economists.

Crucially it is an enabler, not a decider, of final asset allocation. Instead, based on the shared insight generated, we empower our skilled entrepreneurial investment managers to build local portfolios tailored to the needs of clients in each market.

Central to the PSU’s activities is a structured analysis of the global market environment. We do this based on what we think are four key pillars when building multi asset portfolios: macro analysis, liquidity analysis, market valuations and market technicals.

We believe active management of asset allocation is the most important generator of returns.
