About ZEGA Financial

Markets are volatile – possibly the most in your lifetime! ZEGA Financial will systematically utilize hedging methodologies to manage risk predominantly through the use of index ETF’s and protective options.

A hedged portfolio matched to risk tolerance is intended to deliver impressive performance. At the same time, we want you to have peace of mind, so you'll sleep better at night knowing your investments are protected.  

ZEGA Financial abides by the Five Iron Rules that define our methodology and remove emotional decision making from the process:
  1. Hedge Every Investment
  2. Know Your Risk Metrics
  3. A Smart Portfolio = Long Term + Diversification
  4. Unleash Your Inner Guru
  5. Harvest Your Gains and Losses
By diversifying through low cost Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and using Protective Options, ZEGA Financial's goal is to reduce the volatility in portfolio performance and deliver higher long-term returns.
