The Pictet Group

We are a leading independent investment firm with more than 200 years’ experience. As long-term investors we aim to direct capital to the real economy in a manner that improves the state of the planet. We do this by building responsible partnerships with our clients and the companies in which we invest.

About Pictet

Pictet is an investment group, offering wealth management, asset management and related services. We do not engage in investment banking, nor do we extend commercial loans.

Our guiding principles

Independence

Our independence is rooted in Swiss tradition and protected by the absence of external shareholders. It means we are free to concentrate on the interests of our clients, colleagues and communities as well as the companies in which we invest. This allows the independence of mind that is crucial to successful investment performance.

Long-term thinking

To think long term means to resist the temptations of short-term fashion in favour of sustainable decision making. Both our investments and our businesses have a long-term focus, to the lasting benefit of all stakeholders and consequently of the Pictet Group.

Partnership

While Pictet has the legal form of a partnership, it is a partnership in a wider sense too. The notion of partnership embodies respect, trust and interdependence over the long term. It means embracing diversity and promoting inclusion.

Responsibility

Responsibility goes hand in hand with a long-term, partnership approach. It means having a sense of responsibility and integrity not only towards the present generation but also to future generations — and to the real economy and the wider world. This is true sustainable thinking.

Entrepreneurial spirit

Independence, long-term thinking, partnership and responsibility are nothing if we do not keep our entrepreneurial spirit alive. It is the fate of many businesses that they lose their boldness, adaptability and originality as they grow. They become process-driven bureaucracies. Pictet is determined to stay true to its entrepreneurial origins.

A pioneering approach

Ever since its foundation in 1805, Pictet has honed a pioneering spirit in the way we serve and invest for our clients. The constant acquisition of knowledge, paired with a long-term mindset, has been key to unlocking new opportunities and strategies. 

Emerging market investing, early forays into alternative assets, and thematic investing are all commonplace today, but behind these innovations were individuals who dared to think differently and discover underdeveloped markets.

The Pictet of today retains the pioneering drive of its founders, combining unconventional thinking with hard-won experience. We will continue to do so, balancing a long-term view with a desire to keep innovating.

Generation after generation.

Responsibility

With the challenges the world is now facing, we need to move swiftly to a more resilient and sustainable economy. For the financial system, we believe this calls for a systemic shift in focus away from exclusively maximising financial returns. It also means further developing solutions that redirect capital flows to companies and governments best positioned to tackle these challenges.
