Approach & Philosophy

Philosophy and Approach

Our Philosophy

Pictet invests in businesses that have the ability to generate strong cash flows, reinvest those flows in high returning businesses, and that trade below a conservative estimate of intrinsic value.

Pictet believes that this approach conducted in a disciplined way leads to superior returns.

Our Approach

The Pictet approach focuses on four drivers:

  • Cash flow: Cash cannot be manipulated or distorted by accounting policies. Cash is the life blood of a company and gives the ability to grow and pay dividends.
  • Return on investment: Cash flow growth needs to be profitable after taking into account the capital employed to generate those cash flows. While history is a guide, Pictet focuses on the incremental rate and sustainability of future investment returns.
  • Growth and reinvestment opportunities: Pictet seeks businesses with scope to grow by investing the cash they generate in a way that drives growth in free cash flow per share.
  • Value: Pictet’s objective is simple: establish what something is worth, and pay a lot less for it. Pictet’s assessment of this absolute, or ‘intrinsic value’ creates the key reference point for a patient and disciplined investment process.
