Helping Grow And Protect Your Investments

Protected High Income Strategy


This is an alternative strategy that invests passively in Exchange Traded Funds (ETF’s) that provide a high level of income and associated franking credits.

The strategy also uses Index Options with the primary purpose to reduce short term volatility and protect capital from larger downside risks. These option strategies are designed to profit from market downturns and in doing so partially offset portfolio losses.

Overall the strategy is an equity based absolute return strategy that combines the passive high income of the Australian equity market with the benefit of option strategies that are designed to smooth volatility, limit downside risk and potentially enhance growth.
