The investment seeks income and growth of capital. The fund invests directly or indirectly through exchange traded funds ("ETFs") in: equity securities of domestic small capitalization companies; exchange-traded long-term put options on U.S. exchanges for hedging purposes; and buying and selling exchange-traded put and call options on various ETFs, securities and equity indices to generate additional returns. It will invest at least 80% of its assets (defined as net assets plus any borrowing for investment purposes) in securities of domestic small capitalization (under $3 billion) companies through ETFs.
The investment seeks to provide superior risk-adjusted total returns relative to the CBOE S&P 500 BuyWrite Index (BXMSM) (net of Fund expenses). The fund invests primarily in one or more exchange-traded funds that track the performance of the S&P 500® Index while employing an actively managed strategy of writing (selling) call options on all or a portion of the underlying ETFs. Writing call options is intended to generate income in the form of option writing premiums while reducing volatility associated with the fund's exposure to U.S. equities.
The investment seeks greater long-term capital appreciation with lower volatility than a stand-alone stock portfolio. The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by (i) investing substantially all of its net assets in equity securities of medium-large capitalization companies that Gargoyle Investment Advisor L.L.C., the fund's sub-adviser, believes are attractively priced relative to medium-large capitalization stocks generally and (ii) selling index call options against the Stock Portfolio (the "Options Portfolio") with the objective of partially hedging the Stock Portfolio, reducing volatility and improving the reward/risk of the Stock Portfolio.

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.


FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
