We are heading into a complex future, not only in the capital markets. Our independent investment research provides us with effective orientation. We conduct comprehensive analyses and look at future trends from a wide variety of angles. This enables us to offer attractive new investment opportunities for our clients as they arise.
The Investment Research division is the foundation for the entire FERI Group and serves as the central competence centre for all financial market and investment-related topics. The division produces comprehensive macroeconomic forecasts, interdisciplinary analyses of financial markets, professional asset class assessments, quantitative asset allocation models and complex portfolio and risk management scenarios.
This unique combination of fundamental research and innovative capital market analysis has formed the central basis for FERI’s investment strategy for almost 30 years.
The content and results of the investment research are an integral part of numerous FERI services, but are also available to private and institutional investors on request.
The asset allocation division continuously analyses the international capital markets and financial flows on the basis of global market and macro data. Using proprietary models, the asset allocation team generates comprehensive, multidimensional situation and forecast images for the relevant investment environment. These serve as the basis for differentiated investment scenarios, which are continuously updated and actively developed. In a multi-stage process, concrete investment strategies are developed, both for clients and for FERI’s internal investment processes.
Our economic research is based on more than one million time series of economic data. Using this data, FERI produces detailed economic, interest rate and currency forecasts for 60 countries with at least quarterly updates. The long-term macroeconomic forecasts with a time horizon of at least 2030 also reflect structural changes.
Global monetary policy is getting out of hand. Major central banks vie with each other to implement policies of monetary dilution. New ideas and obscure theories abound. These currently include concepts such as modern monetary theory (MMT) and overt monetary financing (OMF), which openly call for public-sector financing by printing more money. Will money printing become a substitute for sound economic policy? Will central banks become monetary repositories for excessive government debt? And is there a risk that entire financial systems will be destroyed in the medium term? Our new study, which is becoming increasingly topical every day, gets to the bottom of these questions. A must-read for investors and asset owners!
