Exchange-traded funds are index funds or trusts that are traded intraday on an exchange. They allow an investor to buy or sell shares of an entire stock portfolio in a single security.

Options on ETFs operate the same as individual equity options. They offer the efficiency of ETFs with the flexibility of options and allow investors to:

  • Gain exposure to the performance of an index;
  • Hedge and hence protect a portfolio against a decline in assets;
  • Enhance returns on a portfolio;
  • Profit from the rise or fall of an ETF by taking advantage of leverage.
