About asset services at Pictet
Pictet Asset Services is quality and performance focused, allowing clients to concentrate on their own priorities: generating portfolio performance and distributing their products.
Our clients include fund managers, independent asset managers and institutional investors. We act as an asset servicing boutique and offer standard and bespoke custody, fund and trading solutions, in addition to cash and securities settlements, corporate actions, valuations and reporting.
Pictet Connect, a dedicated online platform, provides client with a simple and secure digital access to real-time information and reports regarding their portfolios. Additionally, the integration of our Portfolio Management Systems and other bespoke solutions enable seamless front-to-back integration.
Our fund administration services include all processes from NAV calculation and fund accounting to maintaining shareholder registers. We also have access to dedicated third-party management companies that are able to manage relationships with regulators.
All our fund services are managed in-house, ensuring consistent standards and promotion of our risk-aware culture through the whole value chain.
Through a dedicated access to Pictet Trading and Sales, we also offer round-the-clock execution capabilities through a single entry point across asset classes — including equities, bonds, foreign exchange, derivatives and mutual funds.
As the Pictet Group does not have any investment banking activities, we can always act without conflicts of interest and to the best advantage of our clients.
