Recapturing the upside in income generation through covered calls
We take a closer look at futures exposure management in equity call overwriting strategies.
- Covered call strategies provide an attractive and stable income stream that enhances the yield from an equity investment and adds a defensive profile to returns
- Our next generation approach to enhanced income maintains a high income stream, but offers higher equity participation even in bull markets
- The strategy adds a dynamically managed long index futures position to an index covered call position to improve upside capture of the total portfolio and retain full exposure to alpha potential from stock selection
- The overlay provides exposure to an alternative source of potential return over time which is not directly correlated with equity market direction
