How to use futures and options on index-linked securities to earn higher portfolio returns
Leveraged index investments, including index futures, options, and ETFs, are one of the fastest growing products in finance, as both retail and institutional investors are attracted to their long-term returns and capital efficiency.
In Enhanced Indexing Strategies, Tristan Yates reveals how you can create and build high-performance indexing strategies using derivatives that can potentially generate much higher returns than conventional index investing. He presents important industry research on indexed investing, leveraged portfolio management, and rapid reinvestment, detailing the rewards and risks of multiple options positions in clear and concise writing that links concept to practice.
Focusing primarily on long calls and call spreads, LEAP options, and hedging strategies, the author introduces six innovative long-term indexing techniques using futures and options, each with its own advantages and applications, that can capture appreciation in volatile conditions across many years. And he includes all-important advice on managing your leveraged investment portfolio: setting objectives, carrying out associated tasks, and measuring results.
