Trading with Pictet
Direct Client Access
Our Direct Client Access team provides specialist advice to private clients who want to be directly involved in managing their own portfolios.
Custody clients and institutional investors benefit from a comprehensive set of trading services across a broad range of asset classes.
First class execution
At Pictet Trading & Sales, we place a strong emphasis on providing a personalised service, with impartiality, independence and discretion aforethought. Covering a full range of asset classes, and with a strong focus on best execution, your transactions are executed efficiently and effectively, be it 'high touch' (phone/EDA) or through our Direct Market Access (DMA) platform.
Our trading desks cover:
- Foreign exchange and precious metals
- Fixed Income
- Structured Products
- Derivatives (OTC & Listed)
With our private banking heritage, working up bespoke investment strategies for complex portfolios is part of our DNA. We have extensive experience with both vanilla products and more sophisticated trades, such as transactions on equities from emerging and frontier markets and block trading.
Individual investor access
Our Direct Client Access (DCA) team provides private individuals involved in their trading activities direct access to the markets, as well as consultation services and expertise. Our HNWI service offers dedicated support through a single point of contact, and privileged access to products and services across the bank.
Professional investors who are custody clients with Pictet have privileged access to our Sales Trading teams, who can put together a comprehensive set of trading services to match your own tools, whether traditional or electronic.
Analysis and ideas
At Pictet Trading & Sales, investors have access to investment opportunities across a variety of financial instruments, ranging from tactical positions to efficient financial baskets and bespoke trading strategies. Depending on their location, investors can also benefit from market analysis and trading ideas from our strategy desk.
Independence and impartiality
As Pictet is not an investment bank, nor does it make markets, our teams are un-conflicted, both in their ability to act in the best interests of our clients, and in their ability to offer impartial advice. While we draw on a wide range of sources for our market judgements, we rely on our own independent and trading analysis for our trading decisions.
