Summary

Pictet Asset Management is an independent asset manager, overseeing CHF 186 billion for our clients across a range of equity, fixed income, alternative and multi asset products. We provide specialist investment services through segregated accounts and investment funds to some of the world’s largest pension funds, financial institutions, sovereign wealth funds, intermediaries, and their clients.

Our business is investment led and centered around a long-term perspective with a dedication to client service. Our aim is to be the investment partner of choice to our clients. This means giving them our undivided attention, offering pioneering strategies, and being committed to excellence.

We have approximately 950 employees of which over a third are investment professionals. Our people are located in 17 offices across the world, close to the markets in which we invest and the clients we serve.

Our investment focus

We believe in active management with a strong focus on valuation across equity, credit, sovereign debt, and currencies.

As a multi-boutique firm, we embrace a variety of investment styles, allowing our teams to implement the best approach for their respective asset classes.

Our investment resources are focused on three distinctive capabilities: Greater Europe, Emerging World and 'Global Specialties'. Our investment managers operate independently to encourage innovation and accountability, while consistent implementation of their investment philosophy and process is regularly monitored.

We expect our investment teams to think unconventionally and encourage active dialogue across regions and capital structures. We manage risk as much as portfolios, with risk management an integral part of the decision making process.

A commitment to sustainability

We are convinced that Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations can help us make better long-term investment decisions for our clients. For decades, sustainability has been central to our way of thinking.

Since the Pictet Group was founded in 1805, we have aimed to ensure the prosperity of our clients over the long term. In doing so, we have instinctively considered the interests of future generations. Pictet Asset Management believes in responsible capitalism and takes an enlarged view of the economy and its interactions with civil society and the natural environment.

Consistent with our fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of our clients and our adherence to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI), we are committed to integrating material ESG criteria in our investment processes and ownership practices with a view to enhance returns and/or mitigate risks. We also aim to embed ESG in our risk management and reporting tools in order to maintain high standards of transparency and accountability.
