Proven Solutions for Investment Advisors

The investing environment is increasingly difficult against a landscape that has been redefined with globalization, technology, and more. Advisors now face the biggest risks and opportunities in a generation.


Since 1997, we have been redefining investing. Our proprietary Defined Risk Strategy has pioneered the use of options to define and limit market risk—to redefine the risk/return profile of equity investing.

Defining Risk, Improving Outcomes – Across Structures & Asset Classes

Build globally diversified, hedged portfolios across multiple structures and asset classes:

  • U.S. Large Cap,
  • U.S. Small Cap,
  • Foreign Developed,
  • Emerging Markets

Advisors use the DRS to serve various roles inside a portfolio, including:


  • A core equity replacement or supplement
  • A hedged equity complement for equity holding
  • A fixed income complement
  • An absolute return or alternative asset

Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs) offer some customization opportunities with the DRS available across a range of asset classes, as well as, individualized reporting for DRS investors. There is an investment minimum to open a separate account.

The DRS is available in a suite of mutual funds across asset classes, based on the same strategy and investing process launched in 1997, designed to redefine the risk/return profile of long-term equity investing. 

We applied our Defined Risk Strategy to a suite of collective investment trust funds (CITS) to allow investors access to our risk-managed approach to grow and protect wealth in retirement (401k) plans.

Our option overlays offer customization opportunities for hedging and income generation on most multi-asset portfolios. Swan Overlays are available on many custodians. Account minimums apply.
