Gateway Investment Advisers

Specializes in low volatility equity strategies for risk-conscious investors.

Gateway Investment Advisers is a pioneer in options-based investing. The firm’s options-based strategies are designed for risk-conscious investors and aim to deliver stability, risk-adjusted performance, and long-term growth. They may potentially enhance an equity portfolio, help diversify fixed income allocations, or offer a liquid and transparent component to an alternative program.

We believe consistency is the key to long-term investment success and, rather than seeking to predict fluctuations in the prices of securities, employing option-based strategies can be a more reliable and lower-risk means to participate in equity markets.”

Four ways Gateway seeks to mitigate risk and add value

Equities are risky, but reliable

Equity market exposure, combined with index options, can potentially mitigate losses while benefiting from the market’s propensity to rise over the long term.

Options are a tool for risk management

Options-based strategies have the potential to enhance risk-adjusted returns and reduce risks associated with equity market exposure.

Broad application offers multiple solutions

Index option-based strategies can potentially enhance an equity portfolio, diversify fixed income allocations, or offer a component to an alternative program

Active judgement can provide better outcomes

The consistent application of a disciplined, active investment management process can potentially add portfolio value and improve outcomes.

Risk and return techniques

While long-only equity strategies focus almost exclusively on investment returns, Gateway’s index-option based approach seeks to find an optimal balance between risk and return. This approach is built on the belief that generating cash flow – rather than seeking to predict variations in the prices of securities – can be a less risky way of participating in equity markets and has historically helped to mitigate losses during periods of heightened equity market volatility.
