Introduces an option strategy that simulates an annuity by providing steady income, supporting a wide range of investing and trading goals.
Options-based “synthetic annuities” give investors the ability to generate higher returns, provide better downside protection, and utilize risk more efficiently than pure stock and bond-based portfolios. Now, this strategy’s creator shows exactly how to use them to support a wide range of trading and investing goals. Hedge fund manager Michael Lovelady shows how synthetic annuities blend the best features of traditional portfolios with the risk management discipline of quantitative investing, increasing current yields while also reducing volatility. Michael presents this new strategy with unique graphics and simplified models that any investor or trader can use, and demonstrates its value in the context of today’s key market trends. He illuminates the entire “ecosystem” of theories, products, and tools surrounding synthetic annuities, and shows exactly how to integrate them with other investment and portfolio management techniques.
