The Princeton Premium Fund seeks to use risk models in the selling of market hedges in the form of S&P 500 put options to collect premium. The strategy utilizes option contracts to attempt to generate a weekly profit. By utilizing historical market data, along with various current risk data points, the Fund seeks to take advantage of the difference between perceived and real risk in financial markets on a weekly basis. This approach is similar to that of an insurance company. The Fund’s goal is to deliver compelling, non-correlated absolute returns.
- The Fund’s primary objective is capital appreciation with a secondary objective of providing income.
- The Fund's goal is to collect small amounts of premium each week by selling put options on the S&P 500 (SPX) that typically have a six to eight day time frame to expiration.
- Seeking to limit risk, the Fund will purchase a put option on the same S&P 500 (SPX) contract with the same terms other than the strike price.
- The Fund's goal is to deliver compelling, non-correlated absolute returns.
- 1940 Act registered open-end mutual fund
