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.

Sustainability is not only a socio-political imperative. For FERI, it also includes a clear commitment to shared social responsibility as a financial services provider. This is why FERI places the sustainable development goals (SDGs) defined by the United Nations General Assembly (UN) at the forefront of sustainability considerations in all its investment solutions and advisory services. 

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 been continuously developing it since the 1990s. Thanks to its extensive experience, self-developed systems and access to almost 200 employees in all areas of the investment process, FERI creates significant added value for its clients through its range of consulting services.

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.

Portfolio Check

Background

The strategic orientation of the allocation determines the long-term profitability of the portfolio. FERI’s own estimate of the long-term profitability of individual asset classes is updated quarterly as part of an integrated process of collaboration between the teams in charge of consulting, economic Research and portfolio management. By evaluating the current portfolio in terms of expected returns and risks (e.g. volatility and value at risk), it is possible to check whether the current allocation still meets the requirements on yields and risk budget. FERI presents alternative portfolios that promise higher returns with the same risk or offer the similar opportunities for returns with at a lower risk.

Objectives

  • Assessment of the risk/return characteristics of the existing allocation
  • Proposals for reallocating the portfolio or for future investment priorities
  • Guidance on the necessary risk budget

Analysis

  • Analysis of the return and risk potential of the current asset allocation and comparison with the requirements (actuarial interest rate, risk budget, etc.)
  • Analysis of the effects of a variation in asset allocation with regard to expected returns and risks

Outcome 

  • Presentation of key figures of alternative, profitable portfolios
  • Proposals for restructuring and/or adding further asset classes
  • No direct inclusion of the liabilities side (no actuarial considerations/obligations), but reconciliation with actuarial interest rate where required

Example of Portfolio Check

  1. Calculation of portfolios with a better risk/return ratio
  2. Review of the possibility of achieving the target interest rate while minimizing the risk to be taken or determination of the maximum yield with the permissible risk budget
  3. Plausibility check of the results and aggregation of several possible target portfolios into strategic target ranges, possibly supplemented by tactical fluctuation ranges
  4. Presentation of the investment or reallocation requirements for each asset class
