Things Have Gotten a Little Crazy.

The S&P 500 Index hit an all time high recently. Great, right...so, what's the problem?
 
This is a very narrow recovery being led by just 5 of the S&P 500's biggest companies – Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, and Google's parent, Alphabet – which represent 25% of the entire index. We still have a global pandemic, record unemployment, and a troubled economy worrying investors. Market optimism can change in a flash and volatility can re-enter at any time.
How are your client portfolios prepared for market volatility?
An options-enhanced strategy, such as the buy-write approach used by the AdvisorShares STAR Global Buy-Write ETF (VEGA), can prove useful to harness volatility to your clients’ advantage. 
 
Opportunistic – Using quantitative screening and trend following, VEGA is strategically allocated to fixed income and equity exposure and tactically weighted to regions, sectors or individual securities.
FlexibleDuring heightened volatility, VEGA writes call options against portfolio positions to hedge downside risk and generate income. When volatility is lower, VEGA buys protective puts for additional downside portfolio protection.
Enhanced Total ReturnVEGA builds a cash position from income generated by the portfolio holdings that is strategically reinvested back into the market at opportunistic times.
Diversification | Active ManagementVEGA is an ETF solution that is globally diversified across multiple asset classes and actively managed, targeting .
 

  
 
 
As of 7/31/2020, based on its risk-adjusted returns, VEGA was rated 3 stars for the 3 year and 4 stars for the 5 year and overall periods out of 114, 71 and 114 Options-based funds, respectively. The overall rating is derived from a weighted average of the fund’s 3-, 5-, and 10- year (if applicable).

Before investing you should carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other information is in the prospectus, a copy of which may be obtained by visiting the Fund’s website at www.AdvisorShares.com. Please read the prospectus carefully before you invest.  Foreside Fund Services, LLC , distributor.
 
There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. Diversification and sector asset allocation do not guarantee a profit, nor do they eliminate the risk of loss of principal. An investment in the Fund is subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal amount invested. The Fund’s investment in fixed income securities will change in value in response to interest rate changes and other factors, such as the perception of the issuer’s creditworthiness. Fixed income securities with longer maturities are subject to greater price shifts as a result of interest rate changes than fixed income securities with shorter maturities. The Fund’s investments in high-yield securities or “junk bonds” are subject to a greater risk of loss of income and principal than higher grade debt securities. See prospectus for details regarding specific risks.
 
The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or "star rating," is calculated for managed products with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive five stars, the next 22.5% receive four stars, the next 35% receive three stars, the next 22.5% receive two stars, and the bottom 10% receive one star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three- and five-year Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns.
