The SpiderRock Advisors Hedged Equity Concentrated Stock options overlay strategy does not protect from downside risk. The downside risk protection benefit of a call writing strategy is limited to the amount of the premium received. • Portfolio holdings may need to be sold to generate cash to settle options. Such sales may produce tax consequences. • Investors must be willing to forgo potential upside appreciation above the premium value in exchange for the incremental income. • Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. • Options may expire worthless or not perform as expected, resulting in losses. • Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors.
