IUR Capital

With equity markets continuing to trend higher during summer 2021, volatility has continued to remain subdued across equity indexes. Index options provide exposure to several sectors in one product. Investors can use several option strategies to take a view on the next volatility move, using either near-term weekly options or longer-term traditional monthlies with index options.

Join Gareth Ryan, Founder & Managing Director at IUR Capital, as he discusses the evolution of options including long and short volatility strategies. Gareth will look at how these defined-risk, defined-return strategies are implemented to an equity portfolio and look at how they can be used in bull, bear, and sideways markets. A Q&A session will take place at the end.
