ALPS Launches U.S. Equity High Volatility Put Write Index Fund
Portfolio Turnover Risk. The Fund will pay transaction costs, such as commissions or mark-ups in the bid/offer spread on an option position, when it writes options at the beginning of each 60-day period (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover (e.g., over 100% per year) will cause the Fund to incur additional transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Shares are held in a taxable account.
Issuer-Specific Changes. The value of an individual security or particular type of security can be more volatile than the market as a whole.
Non-Diversified Fund Risk. The Fund is considered nondiversified and can invest a greater portion of assets in securities of individual issuers than a diversified fund. As a result, changes in the market value of a single investment could cause greater fluctuations in share price than would occur in a diversified fund. This risk may be particularly applicable to the Fund because the Fund will only sell options on 20 underlying stocks.
