The Pictet Group

The Pictet Group

We are an independent investment partnership known for our long-term mindset, responsible approach to business and entrepreneurial spirit. These principles have defined us since 1805. For our clients, colleagues, and wider society, we always aim to do the right thing and honour our commitment to enduring quality.

About Pictet

Pictet is an investment group, offering wealth management, asset management and related services. We do not engage in investment banking, nor do we extend commercial loans.

Our guiding principles

  • Independence

    Rooted in Swiss tradition, our independence is protected by the absence of external shareholders. It frees us to concentrate on the interests of our clients, colleagues, communities and companies we invest in. It underpins the independence of mind that lies at the heart of successful investment performance.

  • Long-term thinking

    To think long term means to resist the temptations of short-term fashion in favour of sustainable decision-making. Both our investments and our businesses have a long-term focus, to the lasting benefit of all stakeholders and thus of the Pictet Group.

  • Partnership

    While Pictet has the legal form of a partnership, it is also a partnership in a wider sense. Partnership embodies respect, trust and interdependence over the long term. It also means embracing diversity and promoting inclusion.

  • Responsibility

    Responsibility goes hand in hand with a longterm partnership approach. It ensures a sense of responsibility and integrity towards not only the present generation but also  to future generations — and towards the real economy and the wider world. This is the true meaning of sustainable thinking.

  • Entrepreneurial spirit

    Independence, long-term thinking, partnership and responsibility count for little if we do not keep our entrepreneurial spirit alive. Many businesses lose their boldness, adaptability and originality as they grow. They become process-driven bureaucracies. Pictet is determined to stay true to its entrepreneurial origins.

Who we serve

Clients come to Pictet for the attention, time, and expertise our teams give them. They appreciate the difference it makes to work with an independent firm aligned around their interests, with no pressures from external shareholders.

A pioneering approach

Ever since its foundation in 1805, Pictet has honed a pioneering spirit in the way we serve and invest for our clients. The constant acquisition of knowledge, paired with a long-term mindset, has been key to unlocking new opportunities and strategies.
Emerging market investing, early forays into alternative assets, and thematic investing are all commonplace today, but behind these innovations were individuals who dared to think differently and discover underdeveloped markets.
The Pictet of today retains the pioneering drive of its founders, combining unconventional thinking with hard-won experience. We will continue to do so, balancing a long-term view with a desire to keep innovating.
Generation after generation.

Responsibility is central to Pictet’s way of thinking. In aiming to ensure the prosperity of our clients over the long term, we are instinctively predisposed towards the interests of future generations.

Responsibility

With the challenges the world is now facing, we need to move swiftly to a more resilient and sustainable economy. For the financial system, we believe this calls for a systemic shift in focus away from exclusively maximising financial returns. It also means further developing solutions that redirect capital flows to companies and governments best positioned to tackle these challenges.
