The BMO Canadian High Dividend Covered Call ETF (ZWC) has been designed to provide exposure to a dividend focused portfolio, while earning call option premiums. The underlying portfolio is yield-weighted and broadly diversified across sectors.
The fund selection methodology uses 4 factors: – Liquidity; – Dividend growth rate; – Yield and payout ratio.
What’s a covered call ETF?
What’s unique about this ETF is that it uses covered calls to protect against downside risk. This being said, the covered call strategy provides limited downside protection. Also, when you write a covered call, you give up some of the stock’s potential gains. These ETFs will tend to have a higher yield and a lower performance.
ZWC is an excellent option for conservative investors looking for a steady income and low volatility. It’s tax-efficient because the dividends are all coming from Canadian companies. The financial sector and Energy represents 53% of the total overall sector allocation.
