Corporate video of the Pictet Group
Pictet is a partnership of six owner managers responsible for the entire business of the Group. Our principles of succession and transmission of ownership have remained unchanged since foundation in 1805.
As an investment-led service company, we offer only wealth management, asset management and related asset services. We do not engage in investment banking, nor do we extend commercial loans. The partnership ethos of Pictet ensures that we remain committed to preserving the integrity of the Group.
We are able to set our own business strategy without pressure from external shareholders or creditors. Our financial independence goes hand-in-hand with independence of mind, exacting risk management and freedom from the temptations of short term fashion.
Over the past 211 years there have been only 41 partners, each with an average tenure of over 20 years. Because the terms of the partners overlap, their knowledge, experience and values are absorbed and passed on without interruption. Successive generations therefore act as custodians as much as owners of the Pictet Group.
Our adaptability springs from solid and entrepreneurial foundations. Together with our size, these foundations allow us to enjoy the technical expertise and range of skills of the biggest financial groups, while retaining the agility and pioneering spirit of the smallest.
