Aim to achieve a target annual income of 20% in the S&P 500 using options, paid out monthly***

Strategy Overview

SPYT is an actively managed exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) dedicated to generating current income. Our strategy revolves around holding shares of ETFs that track the S&P 500’s performance and engaging in the selling of daily credit call spreads on the Index.

Enhanced Potential Yield

Our options strategy involves selling a call option while simultaneously buying another call option at a higher strike price, maximizing income potential. By focusing on short-term options, we aim to offer an “enhanced” yield compared to traditional option-based strategies.

Income Generation

SPYT’s investment approach is meticulously designed to generate income through option premiums derived from selling Index call spreads, the primary driver of the Fund’s yield. We sell at-the-money or near-the-money call spreads to retain upside growth potential and aim for a target annual income level of 20%.


Each day, SPYT sells credit call spreads on the S&P 500, prioritizing options with near-term expiration. This entails selling call options at or near the money strike prices and buying call options above that strike price. Should the S&P 500 value rise above the upper strike price, SPYT stands to profit from further upside appreciation in the Index’s value.

*** The fund intends to pay distributions, if any, on a monthly basis.

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance current to the most recent month-end can be obtained by calling 833.333.9383. Short term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund’s future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns. Market price is the price at which shares in the ETF can be brought or sold on the exchanges during trading hours, while the net asset value (NAV) represents the value of each share’s portion of the fund’s underlying assets and cash at the end of the trading day.
