Pictet hires new Partner

Assuming the purported annual compensation is close to reality (Sfr 25 Million) one can truly say that Boris Collardi works on 'Wealth Management', his own! Let's hope that 'clients' do as well, since 2009 there has been a continuing boom period in all asset classes. As most fund managers tend to be more or less long come rain or shine they will have happy customers and no one will be checking the substantial fees too closely. When the inevitable bear markets - or even stock market crashes - arrive the moment of truth will arrive. Fees will still be charged, but as the proverbial question will arise: 'Where are the customer's yachts?' (in this case on Lake Geneva)

Wealth Management - but for whose pocket?
