The investment seeks to replicate, net of expenses, the CBOE S&P 500 BuyWrite Index.
The index is designed to measure the total rate of return of a hypothetical “buy-write”, or “covered call”, strategy on the S&P 500 Index. This strategy consists of a hypothetical portfolio consisting of a “long” position indexed to the S&P 500 Index and the sale of a succession of one-month, at- or slightly out-of-the-money
S&P 500 Index call options that are listed on the Chicago Board Options Exchange.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the S&P Total Market Index™ (TMI), which is comprised of the common equities included in the S&P 500® and the S&P Completion Index™.
The fund generally invests at least 90% of its assets in securities of the underlying index and in depositary receipts representing securities of the underlying index. It may invest the remainder of its assets in certain futures, options and swap contracts, cash and cash equivalents, including shares of money market funds advised by BFA or its affiliates, as well as in securities not included in the underlying index.
The investment seeks to track as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the total return of the Dow Jones U.S. Broad Stock Market Index.
The fund will invest at least 90% of its net assets in stocks that are included in the index. The index includes the largest 2,500 publicly traded U.S. companies for which pricing information is readily available. The index is a float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that reflects the shares of securities actually available to investors in the marketplace.
