Patricia joined Pictet Asset Management in 2014 as a Senior Client Portfolio Manager, bringing more than 25 years' experience at both buy-side and sell-side firms to her role. She focuses on global bond and absolute return fixed income strategies and held a similar role at prior firms in London and New York. Patricia holds an MBA from Columbia University in New York and is also a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charterholder.
She was transferred to London in 2000 and, having worked in financial services her whole career in different cities and at different firms, has seen a wide range of corporate cultures in action, some more inclusive than others. Patricia firmly believes that those firms that embrace a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, interests and thought at all levels are those that will succeed in the long term. Making each workplace more welcoming and supportive makes for a dynamic and engaging culture that not only is critical to attracting and retaining the best talent but also creates one in which all thrive. So she is honoured to be an LGBT Great Role Model and looks forward to the day when diversity and inclusion are no longer just aims, but rather are the norm in our industry.
