Since the early 19th century, Pictet & Cie has been a mainstay of Geneva’s financial sector and its history is closely linked to that of the city. Pictet celebrated its bicentennial in 2005 after surviving and prospering during two centuries of political upheavals and financial crises.
Ending 2009, Pictet employed more than 3,000 people worldwide and had approximately 388 billion Swiss francs in assets under management and administration. The Bank is pursuing its international expansion and currently has 20 offices in some of the most important financial centres throughout the world.
Privacy Smartglass was installed at Pictet Bank in London City to section off meeting rooms and to create subdivisions of office space. The use of switchable privacy glass allows for instant privacy on demand when meetings are taking place without compromising the levels of light entering the space to maintain a bright spacious interior within.
