The Partners of the Pictet Group
Pictet is a partnership of seven owner-managers responsible for the entire activity of the Group. Our principles of succession and transmission of ownership have remained unchanged since foundation in 1805.
History of Pictet
Our story is one of resourcefulness and renewal, drawing on the perspective of our history. Always ready to adapt to changing circumstances, the thrust of our strategy is towards continuity, stability and sustainability to the enduring advantage of our clients.
The Pictet lion
The Pictet Group’s logo famously includes a ‘lion issant’, known affectionately as Leo. The lion first appeared in the early 17th century on the coat of arms of the Pictet family, rearing above the ramparts of the old city walls of Geneva – a symbol of strength, courage and defiance.
Pictet in Asia
Pictet has been in Asia for 40 years, and has steadily expanded its business footprint, taking a long term focus in both our investments and our business, to the lasting benefit of all our stakeholders and the Group.
Awards and recognition
We are grateful for external recognition, but it does not distract us from our focus: looking after our clients’ interests, building relationships of trust with them, and helping them to protect, grow and control their fortunes.
