“Only the fittest survive”

How can fund providers remain competitive? Will the sustainability theme still be relevant in 20 years’ time? Why is the rise in indexing leading to increased social inequality? We put these questions to Renaud de Planta, Senior Partner of Pictet.
The headcount isn’t important, we just want to recruit the best people. We’re now even better at attracting the best talent than we were 20 years ago.
— Renaud de Planta, Senior Partner

Our Senior Partner Renaud de Planta discusses how Pictet’s long-term view is an advantage when it comes to strategic implementation but also for attracting talents. He also claims that sustainability and ESG factors will eventually oust passive products.

We don’t keep tinkering with our strategy. Instead, we take a long-term view and remain true to our values and principles. To date, our biggest progress has always been made during downturns.
— Renaud de Planta, Senior Partner
