Our clients

Our clients - asset managers, independent asset managers, institutionals (pension funds, banks, and foundations) - may select from a full range of asset services according to their investment needs.

Services offered as a whole or on a selected basis

At Pictet Asset Services we provide our clients with fund, custody and trading services, and related solutions. As part of a Group with no investment banking activities, we can claim to act independently, without conflicts of interest and always to our clients’ advantage. Our services can be offered either as a whole or on a selected basis.

We are expert at structuring and servicing white-labelled investment fund solutions under various regulatory frameworks. Apart from core fund administration and transfer agency services, our dedicated third-party management companies offer legal expertise, interact with regulators and provide professional support to board directorships. Our clients can also count on our expertise in investment controlling, performance and risk management.

Our size allows us to provide clients with the professionalism, technical expertise and range of skills of the biggest banking groups, while retaining the flexibility and pioneering spirit of smaller institutions.
