The Swan Overlay Strategies

Defining Risk — Enhancing Portfolios

Swan Over­lay Strate­gies are designed to enhance tra­di­tion­al invest­ment return streams by pro­vid­ing a port­fo­lio hedge or increas­ing port­fo­lio yield.

Swan Overlay Objectives

The Swan Over­lay Strat­e­gy is designed to pro­tect again­st large draw­downs and enhance port­fo­lio returns. The port­fo­lio man­age­ment method­ol­o­gy is based upon strate­gies applied by Swan in its flag­ship S&P 500 based Defined Risk Strat­e­gy since 1997.

The Swan Income Strate­gies are designed to provide addi­tion­al port­fo­lio income for sep­a­rate­ly man­aged client port­fo­lios. Swan seeks to col­lect volatil­i­ty risk pre­mia through the sale of options spreads that are then active­ly man­aged con­sis­tent with our risk man­age­ment method­ol­o­gy.

The over­lay has a few dif­fer­ences from our tra­di­tion­al DRS process, includ­ing:

  • Investors may use their own under­ly­ing equi­ty port­fo­lios
  • Cus­tomized hedg­ing and income strate­gies are avail­able

 

Why Swan Overlay Strategies

The risks to cap­i­tal are always present. Large draw­downs may impact spend­ing rates and cre­ate long recov­ery times.

 How would anoth­er major mar­ket down­turn impact your spend­ing rate or abil­i­ty to meet oblig­a­tions? 

Utilizing Swan Overlay Strategies

Dif­fer­en­ti­ate and grow your busi­ness across mar­ket cycles.

Swan Over­lay Strate­gies can be used to:

  • Man­age volatil­i­ty in under­ly­ing port­fo­lios
  • Hedge exist­ing posi­tions
  • Reduce impact of mar­ket draw­downs
  • Enhance port­fo­lio returns

Swan Overlay Advantages

With the risks in mar­ket­place mount­ing, there is increased inter­est risk-man­aged strate­gies among investors and the pro­fes­sion­al advi­sor and mon­ey man­ager com­mu­ni­ties.

Swan is large enough to provide sub­stan­tial exper­tise and resources, yet small enough to remain nim­ble to exe­cute strate­gies and cus­tomize account man­age­ment.
