A Convenient Solution For Generating Income With Options

Ninepoint Target Income Fund is a defensive equity income strategy that targets similar returns to many structured note investments in an accessible mutual fund structure.

Selling Put Options to Generate Income

A put option is an insurance contract protecting buyers against declines in the price of a security over a specified period. This insurance has a defined deductible up until a price or “strike price”, that offers a buffer to the seller against losses. While the buyer of a put option seeks to profit from price declines, a put selling strategy can be utilized to generate income through the ‘insurance premiums’ earned by selling put options to buyers. This approach, used in the Ninepoint Target Income Fund, can be structured across various indices and maturity dates to diversify risk, aiming to produce stable income and potentially provide a buffer against downside risk.
