Opportunities with Option Based Products

Options provide a material opportunity for differentiation and growth within the saturated asset management sector.

Some beneficial ways to utilize options in enhancing a portfolio include:

  • Hedging risk
  • Defining exposures
  • Enhancing yield
  • Providing Non-correlated returns

However, options are under-utilized in ETF’s, Mutual Funds and other investment strategies generally despite their unique characteristics & flexibility due their (1) complexity, (2) perceived and real risks, and (3) difficult implementation.
