Private assets over three decades
Alternatives at Pictet
We are one of Europe’s leading alternative specialists and have been investing in, managing and advising on alternative investment portfolios since 1989. We provide access to a broad range of opportunities across alternative asset classes and deploy capital across a wide array of strategies.
A distinctive approach
Pictet has a long and distinguished provenance in private assets investment. We entered private markets before their investment potential became widely understood. We launched our first private equity investment in 1989 and have since then expanded our expertise into private real estate, private debt and hedge funds. We were early to recognise the potential of responsibly implemented private asset solutions for our clients. We have weathered major economic crises by focusing our strengths, marshalling our resources and keeping our eyes firmly fixed on the long term. Pictet brings its distinctive hallmark of stability to private assets – something evident in our attention to detail, independence and long-term horizon.
Who we serve
Clients come to Pictet for our intellectual capital, global resources and deep industry expertise. When considering private assets, our clients understand and appreciate the qualitative difference of working with an independent firm that is characterised by a long-term perspective in a spirit of partnership; a firm with a history and culture that is lived out in long-term value creation and fully aligned with client interests.
We are a leading independent investment firm with more than 200 years’ experience. As long-term investors, we aim to direct capital to the real economy in a manner that improves the state of the planet. We do this by building responsible partnerships with our clients and the companies in which we invest.
