The fund collects premium from selling options, taking advantage of the passage of time value and capitalizing on high-volatility (high price) and low delta (low risk) options.
The fund manager makes use of probability analytics and time and price limit equations to structure a diversified portfolio of options strategies and adjusts options positions based on the underlying market volatility over the lifespan of the options.
