Option overlays are fast becoming part of many advisors’ tool kits, and for good reasons. We believe that option overlays provide a consistent means to achieving higher risk adjusted returns, enhanced yields, and lower portfolio volatility.


Potential Benefits of an Option Overlay Strategy


Seeking to maintain exposure to the equity markets and dividend streams while lowering portfolio volatility.


Enabling investors to increase exposure as markets fall, while reducing exposure as markets rally.


Complementary to existing portfolios, targeting uncorrelated and repeatable sources of returns.

Can provide superior risk adjusted returns from market exposure and selling option premiums.



Harvesting premiums from index and single stock options can potentially supplement portfolio dividends which may exceed the total return from equities.


Can mitigate market losses, resulting in declines that may be less severe than a long-only or unhedged portfolio.
