Our people

At Pictet Asset Management, our ambition is to attract and retain highly talented individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds, and help them to realise their personal and professional goals. We aim to build an entrepreneurial and collegiate atmosphere, allowing ideas to mature, experience to accumulate and our people to reach their full potential.

We have over 1,000 employees of which over a third are investment professionals. Our people are located in 17 offices across the world, close to the markets in which we invest and the clients we serve.

Our investment focus

We believe in active management with a strong focus on valuation across equity, credit, sovereign debt and currencies.

As a multi-boutique firm we embrace a variety of investment styles, allowing our teams to implement the best approach for their respective asset classes. Our investment managers operate independently to encourage innovation and accountability, while consistent implementation of their investment philosophy and process is regularly monitored.

We expect our investment teams to think unconventionally and encourage active dialogue across regions and capital structures. We manage risk as much as portfolios, with risk management an integral part of the decision making process. Our investment managers are able to focus on their primary task of making investment decisions and are supported by a team of product specialists.

Our size, global reach and focused product range differentiates us from our competitors.

Our investment resources are focused around our core capabilities:

Thematics - Driven by Megatrends

From the 1990s onwards, our innovative thematic equity strategies have looked beyond benchmarks to offer investors the opportunity to capitalise on the most powerful trends shaping our world.

Absolute returns - Ambitious returns, risk controlled

By leveraging our core strengths of active and prudent portfolio management, our absolute return strategies seek to optimise investor returns whilst meeting their risk tolerance.

Multi asset - Mastering asset allocation

Pictet has been championing diversified portfolios since 1967*. Building on this expertise, our Multi Asset teams deploy outlook-driven and tactical allocation to generate attractive returns over the course of an economic cycle.

Emerging markets - Deep and broad knowledge

As early entrants into emerging markets we combine deep market knowledge with a disciplined approach to risk. We have created a diverse range of bond, equity and absolute return strategies that aim to help investors capitalise on the dynamism of the emerging world.

Our commitment to responsible investment

We are convinced that Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations can help us make better long-term investment decisions for our clients.

For decades, sustainability has been central to our way of thinking. Since the Pictet Group was founded in 1805, we have aimed to ensure the prosperity of our clients over the long term. In doing so, we have instinctively considered the interests of future generations.

Pictet Asset Management believes in responsible capitalism and takes an enlarged view of the economy and its interactions with civil society and the natural environment.

Consistent with our fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of our clients and our adherence to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI), we are committed to integrating material ESG criteria in our investment processes and ownership practices with a view to enhance returns and/or mitigate risks. 

We also aim to embed ESG in our risk management and reporting tools in order to maintain high standards of transparency and accountability.

Our commitment to diversity & inclusion

To support our employees in their personal and professional development, we have partnered with external organisations. They are connected to areas of focus for us, such as supporting employees at different stages of their careers and lives, driving charitable engagement and ensuring inclusive recruitment.
