OIC - Manage and Mitigate Risk: How Advisors Utilize Options Strategies for Yield and Protection March 29, 2017 12:00 ET

Many investors are seeking to reduce volatility in their portfolios and are employing "options strategies" to soften the potential drag on growth caused by market volatility.
Options can add diversity, reduce risk and play many roles within an investment strategy. Overlays can be used to hedge against market volatility, while they can also be used to add income.

This webinar will explain what options are and what role they play when an advisor uses them as part of an investment strategy.
The first part in this series will lay the framework about options and focus upon the “covered call” strategy.
