Covered Call Strategy

Mutual funds employ this strategy to earn premiums by selling call options on stocks they already own, enhancing their overall returns. In addition, it provides a degree of downside protection, as the premium received helps offset potential losses in the stock’s value.  

For example, if an investor owns 100 shares of ABC stock trading at INR 100, they might sell one call option with a strike price of INR 105, receiving the premium. If the stock remains below INR 105 at expiration, the investor keeps the premium; if it rises above INR 105, they may have to sell the shares but still benefit from the premium.
