This ETF provides high monthly distributions and the opportunity for capital appreciation by investing in an actively managed portfolio of Global Real Assets companies (primarily real estate, utilities, infrastructure, resources), complemented by a proprietary covered call options program to enhance monthly income. Our Portfolio Management team first uses a top-down analysis to identify attractive sub-sectors. Rigorous fundamental analysis including the integration of ESG factors focuses the portfolio on well-positioned, large-capitalization Real Assets issuers. The Portfolio Managers then actively set the level of covered call writing with the goal of optimizing distributable cash and total returns, and reducing portfolio volatility.
