A new exchange-traded fund issued by Global X has been tradable on Xetra and via Börse Frankfurt since Wednesday.
The Global X Nasdaq 100 Covered Call UCITS ETF tracks the performance of the Cboe NASDAQ-100 BuyWrite Index. The investment objective is to implement an investment in Nasdaq 100 companies in conjunction with a covered call strategy.
In the covered call strategy, call options with a short maturity on the main index are sold, thereby generating income in the form of option premiums. This has a positive effect on the return if the main index moves sideways or negatively. On the other hand, price increases can be limited to a certain extent. The covered call strategy offers investors an improved risk profile by cushioning the risk of loss.
