Calamos Investments Launches Alternative Nasdaq & Bond ETF

Calamos Investments rolled out an actively managed exchange-traded fund (ETF) on Tuesday that combines options-based exposure across Nasdaq-100 stocks, coupled with diversified fixed-income holdings.

The Calamos Alternative Nasdaq & Bond ETF (CANQ), which essentially seeks to deliver risk-managed equity exposure along with income from bonds, marks the second ETF that Calamos has debuted.

The CANQ seeks uncapped upside to the largest and most recognized Nasdaq-100 stocks, coupled with the income and diversification potential of bonds.

President and chief executive officer for Calamos Investments John Koudounis shared the exciting news on Facebook saying that not even an NYC snowstorm “will dampen our ability to bring innovative alternative investments to our clients.”

The launch of CANQ unlocks Calamos’ decades-long expertise in alternatives, risk management and options markets.

Key Features of the Calamaos Nasdaq & Bond ETF

The key features of CANQ include:

Nasdaq-100 Equity Exposure Through Options. Tax-efficient access to leading Nasdaq-100 companies through FLEX Options seeking to deliver uncapped upside.

Monthly Income and Risk Mitigation Through Fixed Income. Complements equity exposure with an active fixed income allocation seeking to deliver limited downside capture and income above the risk-free rate.

For Nasdaq equity allocations, it serves as a tactical de-risking option for Nasdaq-100 with uncapped upside. For equity income allocations, it replace equity income or dividend strategies for higher income potential.
