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, which are reflected in our track record, loss ratio and longevity. We attract exceptional talent, consisting of mature investors who are committed to a long-term franchise backed by a structured approach to investment talent incubation and the constant refining of our proven manager selection process.
Hedge funds at Pictet
Pictet’s multi-manager offering gives access to a wide array of strategies from proven hedge fund names, enabling us to deliver virtually limitless, bespoke solutions from across the risk-return spectrum. We have substantial experience in manager selection and take pride in the partnerships we have built around the world over 30 years. Our hedge fund manager selection process is exacting, and our approach to due diligence has proven its effectiveness. Our portfolio construction capability stems from an acute risk awareness that is deeply embedded in our values.
Direct: single and multi strategy
Pictet enables clients to look beyond traditional investments 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 shown exceptional 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. Multi-strategy hedge funds offer an attractive combination of performance and diversification. We harness the power of compounding while prioritising capital preservation during periods of market stress. We believe in active investment and high conviction in this less constrained investment environment. Our robust risk management framework – including a conservative approach to leverage – is the foundation of all our investment strategies and management teams. We are particularly vigilant when it comes to correlation between strategies.
About alternative investments at Pictet
We are one of Europe’s leading specialists and have been investing in, managing and advising on alternative investment portfolios since 1989.
We recognised early on 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 since added private real estate, private debt and hedge funds.
As a private company, 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 Pictet’s distinctive hallmark of stability to these areas of investing.
