Index Income Overlay

Index Income

The investment objective of the Index Income SMA seeks positive monthly cashflow from option premiums. The strategy employs a long-term, time-decay, premium-capture put credit spread on the S&P 500 or similarly situated exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

The Index Income Overlay strategy seeks to manufacture cashflow in exchange for the investor accepting some additional volatility in their existing portfolio. The investment goal is for this incremental cash flow income to become a realized gain, either upon expiration of the spread, or sometime in the future if the spread positions need to be “rolled” forward. Option overlay products are not appropriate for all investors. Realized gains and losses can be inconsistent. These are long-term strategies and may not produce capital gains over the short-term.
