Pictet Funds, the fund distribution arm of the Swiss private bank Pictet & Cie, has raised EUR30m for its PF(Lux)-Agriculture fund.

The fund, launched on 29 May 2009, holds 55 individual positions across agriculture companies in Switzerland, the US, Canada, Singapore, Israel, Norway and Australia.

It is managed by Gertjan van der Geer, senior investment manager, and is the most recent addition to Pictet’s range of thematic products, which includes water, timber, clean energy, security, biotech, digital communications, generics and premium brands.
