Daily ETF Watch: BPV All-ETF Mutual Fund

November 20, 2013


Denver-based BPV Capital Management is currently prepping its BPV Low Volatility 200 Fund, a mutual fund that will bet on equity and fixed-income securities—with options overlays—via ETFs.

The fund may hedge its long positions by using call and put options, option collars, option spreads and other options-based transactions, according to its prospectus. It may also buy and sell call and put options.

A put option gives the security holder the right, but not the obligation, to sell a specified amount of an underlying security within a specified time. This is the opposite of a call option, which gives the stockholder the right to buy shares.

The fund has an annual expense ratio of 0.59 percent, or $59 for every $10,000 invested.
