Boris Collardi has quit his role as CEO of Julius Baer Group to join Pictet Group.
Collardi (pictured), who is expected to join Pictet’s board of Partners by mid-2018 at the latest, will be jointly responsible for the firm’s global wealth management business, alongside Rémy Best, the managing Partner who has had sole charge of this division since December 2014.
Nicolas Pictet, senior managing Partner of Pictet, says: “We are delighted to be able to appoint as a Partner someone of Boris Collardi’s calibre and reputation in the industry, especially at a time when the prospects for wealth and asset management globally have never been more promising, nor more challenging. The fact that he is joining us is a powerful endorsement of our commitment to independence, organic growth, and focus on the long term, always in the best interests of our clients.”
Collardi will join the existing six managing Partners, who are, in order of seniority, Nicolas Pictet, Renaud de Planta, Rémy Best, Marc Pictet, Bertrand Demole and Laurent Ramsey.
