Alternative Investments: An Interview with Jeffrey Chang of CBOE Vest.
Last week, Tim Melvin talked with Jeffrey Chang of CBOE Vest. His firm offers investment strategies called “defined outcome portfolios.”
These strategies help investors structure their portfolios to provide defined levels of growth, income, and risk.
Strategies of Jeffrey Chang and CBOE Vest
The first strategy this introduced was the Buffer Strategy.
The Target Buffer Protect Strategy seeks to provide a buffer of protection against downside losses in the reference asset over a set period of time, while still providing the opportunity for growth up to a predetermined cap. With increasing volatility in the stock market because of the COVID-19 pandemic, these types of strategies are attracting a lot of attention from investors.
Before co-founding Cboe Vest in 2012, Mr. Chang worked at ProShares, where he was responsible for investment research and product management. Previously, Mr. Chang worked at FBR & Co., a middle-market investment bank. Mr. Chang’s primary focus was FBR’s trading platform, which included equity, high yield, convertible securities, listed options, and mortgage trading. He has also worked at Freddie Mac and the World Bank.
