We are convinced that Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations can help us make better long-term investment decisions for our employees and pensioners.

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.

Consistent with our fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of our employees and pensioners 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.

Our commitment to Sustainability and responsible investment covers 10 levers of action across our assets.

03.1. Indicate if your organisation has a policy on managing potential conflicts of interest in the investment process.

03.2. Describe your policy on managing potential conflicts of interest in the investment process.

The Pictet Group  adheres to the strictest principles of Banking ethics :

- loyalty, fairness and integrity,

- competence, care and diligence,

- respect for privacy and confidentiality

- compliance with laws and regulations

- security and reliablity.

The Pictet Group has developed administrative and organisational measures to ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to prevent and identify situations where conflicts of interest may arise.

The main steps to prevent conflicts of interest are the following :

- segregation of duties, seperation of functions (functional, hierachical and contractual),

- body of internal directives,

- guideline framework for all staff matters,

- regular training,

- monitoring activities,

- inducement policy.

With respect to external conflicts of interest, as the owners of the firm are not subject to the typical shareholder pressure of a quoted business to produce short-term results, they have been able to take longer-term business perspective based on performance, client satisfaction and service.

All members of the organization are subject to Pictet Group policies; furthermore, each year, a signed declaration is sent to the Supervisory Authority.
