MCLEAN, Va., April 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Cboe Vest Financial LLC ("Cboe Vest"), a majority-owned asset management subsidiary of Cboe Global Markets, Inc., announced that the Cboe Vest S&P 500 Enhanced Growth Strategy Fund (NASDAQ: ENGIX) has been chosen by Prospect News and the Structured Product Association as a Leading Edge Structured Investments Deal of the Year.
"We looked at more than 13,000 transactions for the awards, and Cboe Vest's Enhanced Growth structured mutual fund stood out from what was a very large crowd because of its innovative use of structuring technology. The basic idea is very familiar from structured notes, but integrating this approach into a mutual fund format is something genuinely new," said Peter Heap, editor and publisher at Prospect News.
Heap added: "We were also impressed by the response from investors, as indicated by the almost $39 million of interest for the fund, and the overall assets that have been raised by Cboe Vest in this and similar products."
The Cboe Vest S&P 500 Enhanced Growth Strategy Fund provides financial advisors with access to a strategy, formerly found only in structured notes, for clients who are seeking enhanced portfolio growth. It seeks to track the returns, before fees and expenses, of a portfolio of Enhanced Growth Options Strategies on the S&P 500 Index, as measured by the Cboe S&P 500 Enhanced Growth Index Balanced Series (SPEN). The Enhanced Growth Options Strategy seeks to provide two-to-one enhanced returns on the appreciation of the S&P 500 Index up to a capped level, while providing one-to-one exposure to losses.
Karan Sood, CEO of Cboe Vest, commented: "We are honored to receive this accolade from Structured Products Association and Prospect News for the Cboe Vest S&P 500 Enhanced Growth Strategy Fund. In addition to being highly innovative, this and our other target outcome investment strategies are the first such products launched in this space."
