Feras Al-Chalabi

Feras Al-Chalabi joined Odey in 1999 directly from university, having graduated in Classics & Modern Languages from Brasenose College, Oxford. His early days with the firm were spent as a media and technology analyst, before being appointed as deputy manager of Odey’s Japanese Hedge fund from launch in October 2000. Since then Feras has been selected to run the firm’s Continental European retail fund as well as their institutional European Allegra fund.


The investment objective of the Fund is to achieve long term capital appreciation through investing primarily in quoted securities issued by companies with principal offices in Continental Europe. The normal policy of the Fund is to invest in a broad spread of equities but the Fund may also invest in government bonds, other fixed interest securities and preferred stock if in the opinion of the Investment Adviser this is appropriate to the goal of maximising capital growth. There will be no predetermined orientation towards or emphasis on any particular industrial or economic sector. The Investment manager may avail himself of those currency hedging and EPM facilities available within the regulations.
