Top Ten Swiss Wealth Managers

Jean-Claude Erné had an unusual start to his career after he graduated as a law student in 1988. He was considering journalism to travel and better understand the world, but a meeting with Charles Pictet changed everything. He persuaded Erné that he could accomplish all those things through banking.

Today, Erné sits as Pictet’s head of wealth management for French-speaking Switzerland. He has previously served as managing director of Pictet & Cie (Asia) Ltd in Singapore, and CEO of Pictet Wealth Management in Asia, and moved back to Switzerland in August 2011 to take up the post of CEO of family office services.
