Founded in Geneva in 1805, Pictet is today one of Europe's leading independent wealth and asset managers, with more than EUR 349 billion in assets under management and custody at September 2014. The Pictet Group is owned and managed by eight partners with principles of ownership and succession that have remained unchanged since foundation.
These principles encourage a spirit of collegial management and entrepreneurship, a long-term vision and commitment by the Partners as well as a prudent risk management policy. This policy is expressed in a high liquidity coverage ratio which reflects our conservative balance sheet policies. Furthermore, the Group's equity level is well in excess of the Swiss legal requirements, among the most stringent in the world.
The Pictet Group employs more than 3,400 people with a global presence of 25 offices.
Pictet is global partner of the Tech Tour, the Founders Forum as well as DLD and works together with Monocle for the weekly business show The Entrepreneurs, presenting the most exciting ventures in the business world. Pictet is proud to be associated with DLD and thus sustain the future of Digital Lifestyle and Design.
