Pictet North America Advisors

We are committed to ensuring that our relationship with you is founded on a genuine and long-lasting partnership.​​​​​​​

  • Swiss based

    Switzerland, the home of our head office, is well-known for its political and financial stability. Based in Geneva, a renowned financial center for private banking, we are able to put Switzerland’s asset management experience at your service.  Despite being Swiss-based, your advisors will be regularly available to you, either remotely or through frequent visits. 

  • Entrepreneurial spirit

    We combine entrepreneurial spirit and long-term thinking. Our independence allows us to think and act long term, without external pressures to maximize profits. This means we can be entrepreneurs and actively pursue what we think makes sense – not what analysts or media may consider the flavor of the month. Our sole purpose is being your partner in managing your wealth.

  • Investment-focused

    Achieving your investment goals requires more than just managing financial assets. Pictet North America Advisors puts the specific needs of clients at the heart of our investment process. We rely on a community of independent-minded professionals to become a trusted investment partner for wealthy North American individuals and families.

  • Long-term

    In times of global unease, we retain perspective by resisting the temptations of short-term thinking and opting instead for a focus on the long-term. This is the approach we use in managing our operations as well as our clients’ wealth. 

  • Independent

    Our independence allows us to set our own business strategy without external pressure, thereby giving us the freedom to focus on our sole purpose: managing your wealth.

  • Stable

    As part of the Pictet Group we are the beneficiaries of solid financial fundamentals that make it possible for us to weather market turmoil and geopolitical uncertainties.

Your ideas created your wealth. Our ideas ensure you preserve it.
