Banque Pictet & Cie constructs portfolios of investments in large companies with stable earnings, balanced by shorter-term positions in stocks that have been mispriced or have the potential for recovery for bonds and equities. The fixed-income component generally includes core holdings of investment-grade sovereign debt and corporate bonds, complemented by opportunistic investments in high-yield corporate bonds and local currency emerging-market debt. Their fund mandates are managed by the team responsible for discretionary portfolios of mutual funds, exchange-traded funds and other pooled vehicles, operating on the principle of open architecture, selecting best-in-class Pictet or external funds. The firm also offers special mandates, such as absolute return mandates, which aim to take advantage of volatile markets without being tied to a relative benchmark. Their momentum strategy mandate invests in the asset class with the best relative momentum to outperform equity markets over a rolling three-year horizon.
