Fund objective
The primary objective of the fund is to generate a high level of income with lower volatility than the wider equity market. The target annual yield is 7% (USD), which may either be distributed quarterly or re-invested in the fund. This target yield is comprised of two sources: equity dividends and income from selling calls on equity indices. Further, since the total portfolio hedge ratio is less than one, the fund can experience market appreciation.
