TIA Equity Strategies
Covered Call Strategy
TIA uses "covered call" option contracts written to correspond with shares of existing securities currently held in our portfolios. In this strategy, clients receive a premium for agreeing to sell the underlying security if it reaches a predetermined price by a specified date. Covered call premiums are received when the contract is written and retained by clients whether or not the underlying stock is sold.
TIA utilizes this strategy as an additional source of income yield to existing equity portfolios. This conservative option strategy provides a cushion in declining markets.
