Dr. Udo Herges
Founder & Chief Executive Officer

He participated in the Salomon Brothers Training Program For Business Production in New York City prior to working for Citigroup, the Swedish SEB and German Commerzbank.

Udo is also an undefeated former U25 German Correspondence Chess Champion, chess coach and sponsor.
We see our special expertise in direct indexing U.S., Canadian and European stock markets. A direct investment style that avoids altogether mutual funds and ETF fees. A relatively new approach that allows dividends to be received immediately and continuously throughout the year instead of delayed every quarter only. We also developed a novel, risk-adjusted way to invest in commodities. Investor clients may hire us for composing and managing just a specific, narrow asset portfolio, like only Northern American stocks, only European stocks or exclusively commodities. Therefore complementing existing investments with other houses. However, far more popular is the highly diversified ‘All Seasons’ portfolio that would always include the aforementioned components.
Highly unusual for a registered investment advisor, Herges Capital holds also a Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) license. In that role the firm can directly offer the alternative investment strategy ‘Trend Following’ to high-net-worth individuals.
