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. 

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.

Opportunities in Sight. Full Speed Ahead.

Working with and for institutional investors requires special strategic know-how. FERI offers this knowledge and has been well-regarded in the market for over 30 years. We identify investment opportunities at an early stage and offer appropriate solutions. 

Comprehensive Multi Asset Management – Specialising in Success

Deeper insights. Greater rewards. This has been our objective for 30 years, and our guiding principle for successful multi-asset management. Our investment decisions are based on in-house investment research. This provides us with key indications of long-term investment trends and emerging fundamental issues at an early stage.

On the basis of this insight, we create a global investment strategy, taking into account a large number of liquid and illiquid asset classes. The investment strategy is customised, and specific asset classes can be either excluded or emphasised in line with the investor’s individual preferences and risk tolerance level. 

Our Success Strategy: as Simple And as Clear as Possible

Classic multi-asset approaches are often unnecessarily complex, so they often do not yield the desired investment results. FERI therefore only monitors the main areas of the capital markets. This provides clear insights and better results.

The implementation follows clear principles: our investments must be expected to generate a certain return, diversification effect or additional return compared to the relevant market within a certain period of time. Ultimately, the decisive factors are the opportunity/risk profile and liquidity. We also consider strict risk management based on correlation effects (diversification) to be part of the investment process. This guarantees that you always have the best combination of all investment options in your portfolio. 

Thanks to our flexible approach, you can both invest in tailor-made multi-asset portfolios and selectively expand your existing core portfolio with alternative return drivers. If you are interested in specific components such as alternative investments, risk management or existing investment solutions, please follow the information below.

Alternative Investments as Additional Yield Drivers

In the current low-interest environment, alternative strategies are indispensable. FERI has over 20 years of experience in the analysis and management of alternative assets (hedge funds, private equity and property) and has achieved a large number of investment successes.

Risk Management – Innovative Risk Hedging Concepts

For over 20 years, we have been offering our clients individually tailored risk management for their investments. Market risks are actively managed according to risk and return parameters jointly defined in advance. This is done either directly, using our integrated risk steering approach, or indirectly through a risk overlay.

Investment Solutions for Institutional Investors

We make strategies investable: working closely with our clients, we develop strategies for their portfolios. These are often investment solutions that are not available anywhere else on the market. Since we are convinced of the quality of these strategies, we also make some of them available to our institutional investors in suitable investment vehicles such as retail mutual funds.

Investment Research – the Basis of All Our Services

The unique combination of fundamental research and innovative capital market analysis has formed the central basis of our work for over 30 years. This is where we develop our forecasts for all relevant economic indicators and place monetary and fiscal policy decisions in the global context. The contents and results of investment research are an integral part of our services and are then incorporated into the investment strategy.
