In 1974, Pierre Retord began his career with the bank Ferrier Lullin & Cie in Geneva, where in various tasks, he acquired a wide experience in financial services during 15 years. He obtained his master's degree in banking in 1983. In 1984, he created and developed for the bank a new service which was dedicated to independent asset managers. In 1991, wanting to give a new direction to his career, he left the bank and founded his own asset management company, Sodiprivés SA in Geneva.
In 1996 he decided to set up a services platform, the Sodi Platforms, entirely dedicated to independent asset managers. This innovative concept quickly gained success with asset managers.
In 1999 Pierre Retord decided to replicate this model in the Bahamas and together with Pierre Monnard and Karl Hoerkens, he created APMS Assets and Portfolio Management Services Ltd which specializes in the founding and running of management companies in the Bahamas.
