Analytic Investors Covered Call

The Analytic Investors team has been managing factor-based investments for over 20 years and are pioneers in the discipline. The Analytic Covered Call is Analytic's liquid alternative hedged equity strategy built through proprietary multi-factor volatility forecasting and call options to analyze expected returns of every option in the investible universe. The team takes a responsive and disciplined approach to identifying and selling overpriced call options. Analytic customizes the call option portfolio and overlay according to client objectives. By managing risk relative to the underlying equity portfolio, the strategy seeks for volatility to be 20-30% less than the S&P 500 Index while outperforming the index over a full risk cycle.
