Lutz Klaus

Lutz Klaus is a fund manager, partner and executive director at Tungsten Capital Management GmbH, where he moved from Mayfair Asset Management. He started his career in the asset management department of Cologne-based private bank Sal. Oppenheim, subsequently leaving for the multi-billion Euro Degussa Pension Fund where he became CIO. His investment style is a combination of modern portfolio construction theory paired with derivative overlay strategies. Klaus holds a degree as “Diplom Ökonom” from the University of Giessen and is a CFA Charterholder.


The fund invests in different fixed assets. The aim is to replicate the risk profile of high yield portfolios (= portfolios of bonds with high coupon rate, but high credit risk) using equity derivatives. The aim is to achieve a better risk-return ratio to traditional high-yield portfolios, particularly in phases of extreme market disparities in combination with considerable potential risk potential and a more favorable liquidity structure.
