Rohan Reddy, Director of Research at Global X ETFs and Sara Mehle, ESG Index Strategist, Index Research & Development at Nasdaq Investment Intelligence to discuss covered called strategies for income and growth.
WEBCAST: Using Covered Call Strategies on the Nasdaq 100 Index for Income and Growth.
Topics to be discussed:
- The current macroeconomic environment presents challenges for investors and the traditional 60/40 portfolio, as central bank policy actions have led to rising rate regimes today. This has put pressure on equities and fixed income, but has also led to higher levels of volatility in the market.
- In an effort to monetize this volatility, investors can use covered call strategies to potentially diversify portfolios while receiving potentially higher levels of options premiums through call option writing.
- ETFs like the Global X Nasdaq 100 Covered Call ETF (QYLD) and the Global X Nasdaq 100 Covered Call & Growth ETF (QYLG) may be solutions for investors to consider in the current market environment.
- Income oriented investors may find covered call writing strategies more appealing than equity income and other fixed income categories for yield.
