Hedge fund strategies fit comfortably with the active management approach that is at the centre of the Pictet investment philosophy. Our clients enjoy the many benefits of hedge funds but also value our conservative approach and meticulous attitude to risk that is reflected in our track record, loss ratio and longevity. We attract exceptional talent: mature individuals seeking involvement in a long term franchise complemented by a structured approach to investment talent incubation and constant refinement of our proven manager selection process.
Hedge funds at Pictet
Pictet’s multi-manager offering brings access to a wide array of strategies from proven hedge fund names: this enables us to deliver our clients virtually limitless, bespoke solutions from across the risk-return spectrum. We have wide and deep experience in manager selection and we take pride in worldwide partnerships built over 30 years. Our hedge fund manager selection process is exacting and our approach to due diligence has proven its effectiveness. Our ability in portfolio construction comes through an acute risk awareness that is deeply embedded in our values.
Direct: Single & Multi Strategy
Pictet offers clients the opportunity to look beyond traditional investment and to source returns that are uncorrelated to traditional markets through a variety of hedge fund strategies: these include market neutral or directional equities and relative value or event-driven fixed income. We have demonstrated uncommon strength in defensive strategies. Our single strategy offering is delivered through a multi boutique model that is the product of a wealth of in-house talent, with each investment strategy managed by a highly focused portfolio team.
Pictet’s multi-strategy products have been skilfully designed to identify diverse sources of alpha. Hedge fund multi strategy offers an attractive combination of performance and diversification. We harness the power of compounding while prioritising capital perseveration during periods of market stress. We believe in active investment and high conviction in this less constrained investment environment, yet a robust risk management framework – including a conservative approach to leverage – is the foundation of all our investment strategies and management teams. We are highly vigilant on correlation between strategies.
About alternative investments at Pictet
Among Europe’s leading specialists, we have been investing in, managing, and advising on alternative investment portfolios since 1989.
We were early to recognise that responsibly implemented private assets and hedge fund solutions would offer clients a long-term advantage. We launched our first private equity investment in 1989 and have added private real estate, private debt and hedge funds since.
A private company ourselves, we understand private markets and believe in their potential to generate returns and support innovative businesses shaping the future. Our attention to detail, our independence and our long-term approach have brought the distinctive Pictet stability to these areas of investing.
