Video: A Study of Options-Based Funds

In this video, Matt Moran, Vice President of Business Development for Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), discusses the CBOE’s recently published whitepaper, Performance Analysis of Options-Based Equity Mutual Funds, CEFs, and ETFs.

Mr. Moran says he’s given over 100 investment presenations over the years, and many of them have centered on “buy-write” strategies, which involves selling covered call options on indexes. After listening to his presentations, investors often ask him how to gain exposure to these strategies, and now with the massive growth of options-based mutual funds, these investors have many more “options” – no pun intended.

The CBOE’s new whitepaper lists the names and ticker symbols of 119 options-based mutual funds, closed-end funds, and ETFs. It is the first compendium of options-based funds ever created.
