After more than nine years of rising equities since 2008 it is easy to understand why wealth managers are becoming anxious about how to protect client assets if stock markets become choppy. Where’s the equivalent of an investment umbrella if the rain falls?
One approach may be to focus on generating income from stocks in all market conditions. An idea is holding a basket of equities and generate earnings by selling call options – the right to buy a stock at a specified price. If volatility rises, the premium paid for these options becomes even more attractive.
This Breakfast Briefing will focus on whether a strategy that seeks to generate income in this fashion can play a meaningful part in an investor’s portfolio, reduce overall risk, and be worth the effort. The event aims to cut through any jargon and explain the thinking behind such ideas.
