Investment Overview

Strategy Description

McMillan Asset Management’s primary objective is to provide a consistent, low volatility return stream that is uncorrelated to traditional investments. The Volatility Capture strategy utilizes a repeatable process to systematically capture equity index option premium and manage drawdowns. The strategy is managed in separate accounts providing for both liquidity and transparency. Lawrence McMillan literally wrote the book on options trading. Options as a Strategic Investment, the best seller published 35 years ago, has now sold over 300,000 copies. An active trader since the early 1970s, Mr. McMillan is widely sought for speaking engagements and education.
