Why Cboe Vest is Right for You

Why leave the future to chance?

Target Outcome Investments seek to provide a level of contractual certainty unattainable in other investment models, and are designed by our team of experts. We’ve partnered with the Cboe Options Exchange (Cboe Options) — the world’s largest options exchange — to bring you our unique suite of products and technology.

How We Do It

Reengineering Investing

Our Target Outcome Investments use strategies once limited to large financial institutions to flip the traditional investing process on its head. Instead of choosing the building blocks of an investment first, we start out with investors’ goals and build backwards to the specific investment package.

Cboe Vest and Your Business

Differentiate yourself

Cboe Vest lets financial advisors offer their clients a new level of investment certainty without taking on the complexity of building their own Target Outcome Investments. We specialize in the details, so financial advisors can focus on what counts: serving clients' broader financial goals and needs.

Our Strategies

Protection

Hedge exposure to the market while maintaining opportunity for growth.

Protection: Protect & Participate

Losses can happen more often than expected and it can take a long time to recover. Stock and other investment markets are severely affected by events that are rare and difficult to predict. The Buffer Protect Strategy seeks to provide a buffer of protection against downside losses in the Reference Index over a set period of time, while still providing the opportunity for growth to a predetermined cap.

+

Growth & Protection

Enhance the most likely gains and buffer against the most likely losses.

Growth & Protection: Enrich & Protect

The majority of monthly gains in the S&P 500® are between 0 and 5%, and the majority of monthly losses are between 0 and -3.5%1. The Enhanced Buffer Range Capture Options Strategy seeks to provide, before net options premium paid or received, two times leveraged returns on appreciation of the S&P 500 Index up to a capped level of 5.0%, buffer protect against the first 3.5% of losses, and deliver two times enhanced returns on losses of more than 3.5%.

1 As measured by the price performance of the S&P 500 Index between December 14, 2007 and December 15, 2017.

Growth & Protection: Enrich & Protect

Growth

Increase upside opportunity by strategically expanding market exposure.

Growth: Enhance & Enrich

Enhance some of the gains without increasing the risk of downside losses. Conventional strategies to enhance upside returns may also lead to enhanced downside losses. The Enhanced Growth Strategy seeks to target returns that, over a set period of time, provides two-to-one enhanced returns on the price appreciation of the Reference Index up to a capped level, while providing one-to-one exposure to any losses from price depreciation.

+

Income & Growth

Generate a higher level of current income while maintaining the opportunity for price appreciation

Income & Growth: Royalties & Returns

Stocks with a consistent track record of increasing dividend payments each year can be sound growth investments. The Target Income Partial Overwrite Strategy seeks to add a level of income to dividend growth stocks by trading some of the uncertain future growth opportunity of the stock for assured current income. This is achieved by repeatedly writing short-term call options on a small part of the stock holding. By combining premiums collected from the sale of options with the dividend income of the stocks, investors will increase their total income while still participating in the majority of the growth potential from price appreciation of the stock.

Income

Generate ongoing payments and control market exposure.

Income: Defend & Distribute

Traditional sources of income may struggle to deliver significant yield and typically reduce in price when interest rates rise. The Defined Distribution Strategy seeks to generate premium income from options and issue monthly distributions of 6.50% annualized over the One-Month Treasury Yield, before fees and expenses, while preserving capital if the Reference Index is between an Upper and Lower Bound of a predefined range.

BLOG:
From Market Calm to Uncharted Territory

It’s a new investment world in 2018. Out of the gate, in January we saw equity indexes rising at an unprecedented pace only to be followed by very rough seas, where equities were lifted and then pushed down in rapid succession. This year has brought a stark and clear change in risk along with a more muddled outlook for the direction of both equity and bond markets.

THOUGHT LEADERSHIP:
Are There Blind Spots in Your Clients’ Portfolios?

Retail investors want three things: asset growth, liquidity at specific points of time in the investment lifecycle, and protection against losses when they capitalize on that liquidity. It doesn’t sound unreasonable, does it? Yet the way that most retail investor portfolios are constructed leaves the investor with serious blind spots.
