CBOE's Strategy Benchmark Indexes

The CBOE S&P 500 BuyWrite Index (BXMSM), CBOE DJIA BuyWrite Index (BXD), and the CBOE NASDAQ-100 BuyWrite Index (BXN) (the "Indexes") are designed to represent proposed hypothetical buy-write strategies. Like many passive benchmarks, the Indexes do not take into account significant factors such as transaction costs and taxes. Transaction costs and taxes for a buy-write strategy could be significantly higher than transaction costs for a passive strategy of buying-and-holding stocks. Investors attempting to replicate the Indexes should discuss with their brokers possible timing and liquidity issues. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The methodology of the Indexes is owned by CBOE may be covered by one or more patents or pending patent applications.
