In the context of ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds), a strategy refers to the approach that investors or fund managers employ to achieve specific financial goals, such as growth, income, or market hedging.

 Various strategies include:

    • Active: actively managed funds that do not strictly follow an index.

    • Bullet maturity: funds and their bonds mature on a designated date.

    • Buy-write: utilizes an options overlay strategy where call options are written against similar equity exposure.

    • Copycat: mimics the positions of other prominent funds or managers.

    • Dividends: selection or weighting based on dividends paid by companies.

    • Duration hedged: adjusts interest rate risk of its bond portfolio.

    • Equal: equally weighs all holdings.

    • ESG: employs environmental, social, corporate governance, and other ethical principles for selection or weighting.

    • Exchange-specific: the fund's universe is strictly a single exchange.

    • Extended-term: selects a single futures contract commodity type with a longer tenor than the primary month.

    • Fixed asset allocation: adheres to a set criterion of asset allocation.
