Analyst Report

This ETF is actively managed, and offers investors a way to gain access to the popular buy-write strategy. The buy-write strategy this ETF implements essentially involves the combination of long positions in various asset classes with short positions in call options on those asset classes. The result is limited upside -- gains will be capped in bull markets due to the writing of the options -- along with a reduction in the loss potential. As such, this technique can be used to lower overall volatility and limit downside risk while potentially boosting returns and providing a stream of income to the portfolio. For investors looking so smooth volatility, VEGA could potentially be useful. It should be noted that htis ETF is actively manged, which contributes to a relatively high overall expense ratio. There are a couple other exchange-traded products that offer access to long-short strategies as well, including PBP. That ETF has a much lower expense ratio, and implements this strategy on the S&P 500.
