Change in Pictet Board of Partners
Renaud de Planta, who turns 60 this year, joined Pictet in 1998 as Managing Partner and became its Senior Partner in 2019. Over the past quarter century, he has had a pivotal role in the development of the firm, helping it grow from around 1,000 employees in nine offices managing assets of CHF 100bn to 5,300 employees in thirty offices managing assets over CHF 630bn.
Renaud spearheaded the development of Pictet’s asset management business, taking it from a small unit with less than CHF 20bn in assets to the second largest Swiss provider with more than CHF 230bn in assets. Today the business serves the most sophisticated global clients and is a key driver of success for the Group. Among many other contributions, Renaud also successfully led the response of Pictet to a number of external crises including the Great Financial Crisis of 2008 and the recent Covid pandemic.
