Customized Solutions for Concentrated Equity Positions

Recent market volatility has highlighted the challenges asset owners face when they hold significant exposure to a single stock, with many stocks experiencing sharp drawdowns. But rather than exiting a position altogether, how can an investor maintain the benefits of ownership while managing risk? Watch Brian Gray explain how customized Equity Over-The-Counter (OTC) options may help Qualified Investors limit downside, cap upside and create liquidity. 

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Certain requirements must be met to trade options. Before engaging in the purchase or sale of options, investors should understand the nature of and extent of their rights and obligations and be aware of the risks involved in investing with options. Prior to buying or selling an option, clients must receive the options disclosure document, “Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options”, available at: https://www.theocc.com/about/publications/character-risks.jsp. Supporting documentation for any claims, if applicable, will be furnished upon request.
