    Jens Labusch
    Founder, Managing Partner and Chief Executive Officer

    Jens Labusch, born in 1978, is a founder and CEO of the FELS Group. He previously served as managing director of the fintech start-up leanvestors. He has more than 20 years of experience in the financial sector, most of which he spent at DWS Investments, Germany’s largest investment company. In a range of leadership positions, he succeeded in setting up new funds and managed global funds with a volume of several billion euros. After moving to Deka Investments, where he oversaw markets and multi-asset funds, he decided to set up on his own with FELS Investments, a boutique investment company. A carbon-neutral fund with strict sustainability criteria gave birth to the idea of today’s FELS Group. Jens Labusch is convinced that there is no contradiction between a strong return and sustainability, but rather that impact investments also pay financial dividends in the medium and long term.

    Carsten Gering
    Founder, Managing Partner and Chief Technical Officer

    Carsten Gering, born in 1973, is a co-founder, managing partner and CTO of the FELS Group. Together with CEO Jens Labusch, he previously worked for a fintech start-up called leanvestors. Carsten Gering has more than 20 years of experience in corporate consulting in the areas of asset management and IT, both at home and abroad. He most recently supported IT service provider Endava and investment company DZ BANK Union Investment but was also the founder, partner and managing director of acarda, specialising in system integration and migration in the asset management environment. He also played a leading role in developing the German subsidiary of COMIT Switzerland (now Swisscom IT Services Finance AG). He is a specialist in the technical implementation of complex projects with responsibility for the IT infrastructure and systems of the FELS Group, among other things. Carsten Gering has always wanted to develop a system that provides users and customers with a simple, fully digital way to make investments – and he can now do this with the offer of the FELS Group.

    Frank Stuhlmüller
    Managing Partner and Chief Financial Officer

    Frank Stuhlmüller, born in 1979, is a managing partner and CFO of the FELS Group. He has more than 20 years of experience in the financial industry, where he first worked as a treasury trader at DZ BANK, Germany’s second largest bank. From 2011 until he joined the FELS Group, he held various management positions for the company, ultimately with responsibility for setting up and managing the group controlling and resource management department. Prior to that, he established and led the functional area of strategic resource management and headed up a group to implement regulatory capital and liquidity requirements. Frank Stuhlmüller believes that good leadership built on values is a key to success – a principle that also guides the FELS Group.

    Tim Cappelmann
    Head of Communications, Managing Partner

    Born in 1978, Tim Cappelmann is Managing Partner and, as Head of Communications, responsible for PR and the media at the FELS Group. Holding a degree in journalism and a graduate of the Henri Nannen School of Journalism, he brings almost 20 years' experience in the media and PR sector. Until he joined the FELS Group, he worked as chief copy editor and deputy editorial manager for stern Medien GmbH, owned by the Gruner + Jahr publishing house in Hamburg. Prior to that, he was with the Reuters news agency in Berlin and then spent ten years at Lufthansa Media, including as editor in charge of department and deputy managing editor. Tim Cappelmann believes that the financial market lacks products like those offered by the FELS Group. By means of transparent and easy-to- understand corporate communications, he aims to help gain more people for new, sustainable and successful forms of investment.
