Fund Description

The investment seeks investment results that generally correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield of the CBOE S&P 500 BuyWrite IndexTM. The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its total assets in securities that comprise the underlying index and will write (sell) call options thereon. The underlying index measures total returns of a theoretical portfolio that includes S&P 500 Index stocks on which S&P 500 Index call options are written (sold) systematically against the portfolio through a "buy-write" strategy.
