Profile of the company:
Founded in Geneva in 1805, Pictet is today one of Europe's leading independent wealth and asset managers, with more than CHF 421 billion in assets under management or custody at 30 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.
