Benefits of a Covered Call ETF

Nathan Reiff

When an investor with a long position in a particular asset sells a call option for that asset, generating a profit in the process, that is considered a covered call. A key to the covered call approach is that the buyer of the call option is obligated to pay a premium in order to buy it. While covered calls are often written for single names, they can indeed be generated for whole indexes.
