FERI is a byword for comprehensive, individual, transparent and sustainable advice and support for private clients. With over 30 years of experience, we offer private investors a wide range of asset management services.
For us, your requirements and needs are the basis for planning and optimising your asset structure. We always keep an eye on all legal and tax aspects and try to bring about improvements for you.

The FERI family office is the strategy advisor for your assets. We offer services ranging from strategic asset planning, implementation consulting and results monitoring and controls, through risk management and asset protection strategies to sustainability consulting.
With the help of an asset liability management study, FERI can show you whether a financing system in its current form is sustainable and whether sufficient risk carriers are available or whether a modification of the system is advisable.
During the transition to a sustainable future, FERI guides and supports you in the implementation of a sustainability concept and in the implementation and further development of existing solutions.
FERI’s comprehensive support ranges from optimal asset allocation and investment planning to appointing managers, reporting, monitoring and controls. Clear structures always ensure well-documented decisions and transparent investments.
FERI carries out a cost check in three steps and determines the costs for mandates, depositaries and investment management. In times of persistently low interest rates, these are a key factor in the performance of any portfolio.
FERI uses the three-step manager check to assess the quality and performance of asset managers.
FERI evaluates current portfolios in terms of expected returns and risk and checks whether the allocation still meets the requirements regarding yield and available risk budget. In addition, FERI presents you with alternative portfolios that promise higher returns with the same risk or offer similar opportunities for returns with reduced risk.
To ensure the success of the investment, FERI provides guidance on risk management processes. These range from the preparation of a risk manual and risk inventory to regular reporting and commentary.
In order to identify the risk sources and their distribution in the portfolio of an investment, FERI prepares a risk sheet, which makes this information transparent and clear. It clearly shows what share of the overall risk is attributable to the individual investment funds, segments and asset classes.
FERI offers its clients the entire process of investment consulting and has continuously developed it since the 1990s. Thanks to our extensive experience, self-developed research and analysing tools and the access to around 230 employees in all areas of the investment process, we create significant added value for our clients through our range of consulting services.

China accelerates economic decoupling process

Bad Homburg, 9/19/2022
by FERI Cognitive Finance Institute
  • Closing ranks with Russia strengthens China's global ambition
  • Russia as a strategic supplier of energy and raw materials
  • Goal of building a self-sufficient Chinese hemisphere
  • FERI Cognitive Finance Institute analyses geo-economic risks

Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine was discussed in advance between Vladimir Putin and China's President Xi Jinping at the Olympic Games in Beijing. At the summit of the so-called "Shanghai Group" (SCO) in Uzbekistan, both countries have now agreed on even closer cooperation. "The new solidarity between Putin and Xi strengthens China's strategic position. Not only the value-based global order, but also the dominance of the USA, will come under even greater pressure in the future. At the same time, China is working intensively on building a largely autonomous economic hemisphere," says Dr Heinz-Werner Rapp, founder and director of the FERI Cognitive Finance Institute.

Global system conflict intensifies

The war against Ukraine represents a new era in which great powers such as Russia and China openly oppose the Western value model and its leading power, the USA. Russia's attack is thus an expression of a hard systemic conflict between the West and a group of global challengers. This conflict is only at a relatively early stage, but will become much more intense in the coming years. "The next global fault line is in Taiwan. China's goal of 'reunification' is being pushed further by Xi Jinping and threatens to end in a direct confrontation with the USA," Rapp emphasises.

The new Russia - China axis

The Taiwan conflict and other problems between China and the USA had already reached a high level of escalation potential. Now, however, the new partnership between Russia and China adds another aspect that has great strategic significance. "By specifically using Russia as a supplier of energy and raw materials, Xi Jinping is providing China with a number of decisive advantages for the future," Rapp explains. "China thereby gains not only a permanent raw material base and new buyers for Chinese products, but at the same time a useful vassal for any future conflict with the USA," says Rapp.

China-centred hemisphere as a target

The closer ties with Russia bring Xi Jinping closer to his strategic goal of transforming China's economic and political position. "China is to be transformed from an exporting country closely integrated into the system of globalisation to the centre of a largely self-sufficient 'Chinese hemisphere' in which China sets its own rules," Rapp emphasises. China would then still have access to important transaction networks, even in the 'global South', but in doing so it could increasingly escape the existing world economic order. "The strategic decoupling from China is already underway and will continue to accelerate. Therein lies a serious risk, because a split-up of the world economy would have grave consequences. Entrepreneurs and investors should follow this new trend very closely and by no means underestimate it," says the analysis of the FERI Cognitive Finance Institute.
