One of the first ETFs to launch from Simplify, The Simplify US Equity PLUS Downside Convexity ETF (SPD) seeks to provide capital appreciation by offering US large cap exposure while aiming to boost performance during extreme market moves down via a systematic options overlay. The actively managed fund’s core holding gives investors low-cost, index-based exposure to US large caps. A modest option overlay budget is then deployed into a series of options positions that help create downside convexity in the fund.
Under normal circumstances, it invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities of US companies, primarily by purchasing ETFs. The downside convexity option overlay consists of purchasing exchange-traded and over-the-counter put options on the S&P 500 Index or an S&P 500 Index ETF.
The option strategy is designed to provide downside protection without capping any upside participation, which creates downside convexity in the fund. The specific put option contracts are selected strategically based on the adviser’s evaluation of relative value, strike price, and maturity. Investors should anticipate a non-linear relationship between the funds and market returns.
SPD is useful as a short-term tool and also as a longer-term portfolio component. Its performance YTD has been similar to the S&P 500. The fund is cheap relative to peers, with an expense ratio of just 0.28%.
