Pictet Asset Management is an independent asset manager, overseeing CHF 189 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 centred 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 890 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.
Our investment resources are focused on three distinctive capabilities:
From our Swiss origins we have established ourselves as a leading European investment specialist, with a natural competitive advantage when investing in the region. We understand the market dynamics, cultural and market nuances, and our close access to companies underpins our ability to invest successfully across the corporate capital structure.
We were among the pioneers in both emerging debt and emerging equity investing. Our offering has grown with the market, starting with equities and hard currency debt, then adding local currency debt and more recently Asia specific and corporate debt strategies. With growing economies, lower debt and positive demographics, emerging markets are poised to overtake the developed world.
We also offer a range of investment strategies that capture long-term trends or aim to benefit from structural changes across sectors and regions. Our beta agnostic thematic equity, multi-asset and absolute return fixed income products lie at the heart of these strategies. Their goal is to provide long-term return potential with diversified risk.
Our commitment to responsible investment
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.
