GP Bullhound Summit

Connecting the creators of the new digital world


The Summit is a private affair for 150 of the most impactful CEOs and founders of our industry to share experiences, inspire fresh thinking, debate current and future trends. With some great activities organised such as tennis, padel, watersports, beach games, kite surfing, race car driving, we make sure to have an enjoyable time together away from the daily grind of building tomorrow’s giants.
Summit 2018 was truly unique. The amazing line up of guests discussed critical developments in technology including the future of cyber security, neurotechnology, the rise of financial applications on the blockchain, monetisation strategies of leading game and app developers, key market dynamics in US & Asia, and how Europe can build a $50bn tech company. The director of Human Rights Watch, Ken Roth, talked about how technology can give an edge in the battle for human rights.

The Summit is by invitation only. It is a not-for-profit venture and the event is backed by GP Bullhound and this year’s sponsoring partners Pictet, Nasdaq and Gómez-Acebo&Pombo.

The next GP Bullhound Summit will take place in Marbella on 21-24 May 2019. For any enquiry, please contact

More than 210 years after it was founded, Pictet ranks as one of Switzerland’s leading private banks and is among the most respected wealth management specialists. Even though they now have a worldwide presence and a global perspective, they retain the principles that have helped clients to prosper over the years. The most important of these are the independence, long-term thinking and entrepreneurial spirit created by a partnership of owner-managers responsible for all the activities of the Pictet Group. From the outset, Pictet has focused solely on managing the wealth of private individuals and institutional investors.


They intend to keep these principles, upholding the values created in the past so that they can continue to create value far into the future. Their mission is to serve their clients, going beyond asset management to cover wealth management in its widest sense.
