Boston QWAFAFEW Meeting: 18 Jun 2019

Utilizing Options Strategies to Meet Portfolio Objectives

A QWAFAFEW discussion led by:

Dan Corcoran, CEO Volos Portfolio Solutions

The growth of options and volatility strategies over recent years has caused many managers to reconsider existing portfolio construction and idea implementation approaches. Utilizing options strategies has been shown to help managers better meet their portfolio objectives, whether it be enhancing returns, generating income, or reducing portfolio risk. In this discussion, we present an optimized and technology-driven approach to enhancing the performance of a standard index call-overwriting and collateralized put-write strategies.


Dan Corcoran is founder and CEO of Volos Portfolio Solutions, a software company that helps investors optimize their options strategies. Dan’s passion for quantitative finance led him to start Volos in 2014 and assemble the financial engineering talent to develop software for the investment industry of the future. He has experience in the hedge fund industry at SCS Financial, working on a team to analyze hedge funds. In order to grow Volos, Dan officially withdrew from Babson College, where he was a Weissman Scholar, and has also completed coursework at MIT, Olin College of Engineering, and Harvard University. In his free time, Dan enjoys skiing and researching the latest trends in technology.
