On 27 April Inquire UK will host David Buckle for a webinar on How Options Impact Fund Returns.
In this presentation, David Buckle derives closed-form formulae for the standard portfolio performance measures – risk-premium, risk, Sharpe ratio, and beta – applicable to portfolios containing any combination of options. He provides the mathematics necessary to assess the impact of including of options positions on portfolio efficiency and to account for this impact in rebalancing decisions. The mathematics are illustrated using a number of common option overlay strategies. The analysis reveals that while options introduce asymmetric, non-normal outcomes in the short-run, the repeated use of options overlays over multiple time periods results long-run portfolio returns being normally distributed. Investors need to carefully assess whether option overlay strategies deliver the long-run outcomes desired.
