FAUG Fund Description

FAUG aims for specific buffered losses and capped gains on the SPY over a specific holdings period. The actively-managed fund holds options and collateral.

FAUG Factset Analytics Insight

FAUG uses options in an effort to moderate losses on an ETF — SPY, over a one-year period starting each August. Using SPY is a slightly different approach then using S&P 500 index flex options; what is gained in favorable tax treatment may be lost in higher expense. The fund foregoes some upside return on SPY, in exchange for preventing realization of the first 10% its losses, investors forego upside participation above a certain threshold, which is reset annually. Investors who buy at any other time than the annual reset day may have a very different protection and buffer zone. The issuer publishes effective interim levels daily on its website. The fund must be held to the end of the period to achieve the intended results. The targeted buffers and caps do not include the fund’s expense ratio. The fund is actively managed, resets annually and uses listed options exclusively.
