As an independent partnership, we are under no pressure to maximise short-term returns for shareholders. We manage our clients’ assets to create value over the longer term.
Established in Geneva since 1805, Pictet is a private bank specialised in asset and wealth management, attracting discerning private clients and leading financial institutions from around the world.
While our first and final duty is to our clients, everything we do entails responsibilities towards our employees, our communities and the world in which we invest and live. Our sense of responsibility has contributed to and arises from our long history of stability and continuity.
The Pictet Group has a presence worldwide, with 26 representative offices, subsidiaries and branches in financial centres around the world. Of these, Pictet has custodian banks in Geneva, Luxembourg, Nassau and Singapore and has been headquartered in Geneva since its foundation.
On 23 July 1805, two young men in their twenties, together with three partners, signed a scripte de société in Geneva. Eventually this partnership evolved into the Group known today as Pictet.
