Aptus Defined Risk ETF

An actively-managed strategy that seeks income and growth through a hybrid fixed income and equity approach. The strategy invests 90-95% of its assets to obtain exposure to investment-grade corporate bonds, with the remainder seeking gains in long-term in-the-money call options on selective large cap stocks and sectors.


  • Broadly diversified income from intermediate-term, investment-grade corporate bonds without chasing yield or accepting long-duration risk
  • Laddered approach to create annual redemption and redeployment to reduce reinvestment risk
  • Intermediate-term options enable pursuit of 10-20 equity market opportunities, typically with 5-10% of capital at risk

Cumulative return is the aggregate amount that an investment has gained or lost over time. Annualized Return is the average return gained or lost by an investment each year over a given time period. Performance is annualized for periods greater than 1 year.

Performance quoted represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, so you may have a gain or loss when shares are sold. Current performance may be higher or lower than that quoted. Short-term performance in particular is not a good indication of the fund’s future performance and an investment should not be made solely on returns.
