FERI OptoFlex Fund exceeds EUR1bn AuM on LRI UCITS platform


LRI Group’s FERI OptoFlex fund has exceeded EUR1 billion in Assets under Management (AuM), five years after the Fund was launched in December 2012 on the LRI UCITS Platform. The capital invested in the fund is raised from both institutional and private investors.

OptoFlex is a daily liquidity fund in a UCITS V regulatory framework. The innovative investment strategy developed by FERI is based on selling puts on the S&P 500 Index and investing part of the received premium into a hedging strategy comprising derivatives on the US stock and volatility market. This is designed to protect the investment fund against severe price slumps. And indeed, this hedging strategy proved its worth during the recent downturn on the stock markets.
Michael Sanders (pictured), Managing Director, LRI Invest, says: “We are really pleased to see OptoFlex has strengthened its position in the marketplace and exceeded the EUR 1 billion milestone. We look forward to continuing to work with FERI and being part of their ongoing success.”
Carsten Hermann, Managing Director at FERI Trust, says: “During periods of sharply increasing volatility, OptoFlex constructs an effective defence mechanism against falling stock market prices. The concept therefore offers clients an investment that behaves in as stable a manner as possible, largely unaffected by movements on the capital markets over the medium term.”
