We are convinced that Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations can help us make better long-term investment decisions for our clients.
For decades, sustainability has been central to our way of thinking. Since the Pictet group was founded in 1805, we have aimed to ensure the prosperity of our clients over the long term. In doing so, we have instinctively considered the interests of future generations.
We believe in responsible capitalism and take an enlarged view of the economy and its interactions with civil society and the natural environment. Consistent with our fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of our clients and our adherence to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI), we are committed to integrating material ESG criteria in our investment processes and ownership practices with a view to enhance returns and/or mitigate risks.
We also aim to embed ESG in our risk management and reporting tools in order to maintain high standards of transparency and accountability.
The Pictet group is a partnership of six owner-managers responsible for the entire activity of the Group. With the eighth generation of the Pictet family still active in the partnership, our structure ensures that we remain committed to maintaining the financial strength and solidity of the Group. Laurent Ramsey is the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Partner primarily responsible for the asset management business line.
