We identify compelling investment opportunities through our extensive network and local presence in key European markets. We generate value through our experienced investment teams, applying our rigorous investment philosophy and processes. Our heritage and client-centric approach make us a trusted partner.
Pictet is a real estate partner of choice thanks to our deep, long-standing fiduciary credentials and close alignment of interests with our investors. We have a distinct investment philosophy that delivers uncorrelated sources of alpha: high-conviction investments with a thematic focus and a prudent risk-management approach.
Our offering spans an array of strategies for income and capital growth, delivered through direct and multi-manager solutions, as well as co-investment opportunities. We are at the forefront of sustainability-driven investment in real estate.
Real Estate at Pictet
Providing diversified exposure with stable risk-adjusted returns, our multi-manager platform is an ideal solution for investors. We construct diversified portfolios by blending fund vintages, geographies and strategies that include Defensive Plays, Asset Value Growth and Special Situations.
Our managers range from the smaller niche players to the world’s largest real estate managers. We believe smaller managers with a local, hands-on approach are well placed to generate alpha through their sourcing and execution capabilities, in harmony with our high level of conviction.
Pictet’s long history as a trusted, long-term partner gives our clients access to attractive high-conviction co-investment deals – at speed – through our established and extensive industry network. These opportunities may be housed as single assets or through a portfolio of assets or, alternatively, sit within the context of our direct or multi-manager Real Estate offerings. All our co-investment propositions are consistent with our usual high-conviction, thematic-driven investment philosophy. Target sectors and locations may vary depending on the opportunity set and market environment.
Pictet’s network, the cumulative experience of our people and their industry relationships over more than a century mean that we can provide investors with direct access to opportunities through our Core Plus and Value-Add strategies. We have assembled an exceptional team from top Private Equity Real Estate firms, present locally in six European countries. This gives us early and preferential access to deal prospects.
We are active investors. We create value in our portfolio assets independently of market conditions and by leveraging long-term, thematic investment drivers such as technology, sustainability, and flexibility. The European-built environment faces substantial environmental challenges and changing regulations. This puts sustainability at the heart of our investment process, bringing rich potential for the creation of added value.
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.
