Best Covered Call ETF’s

Since the Covered Call ETF is a relatively new invention, the selection of available ETFs to buy shares in is still pretty limited. At the time of writing, most of the ETFs are heavily focused on the U.S market or the Canadian market (or both), but there are exceptions and the world-wide interest in ETFs is definitely growing by the day. etfsThere is for instance Horizons Enhanced Income International Equity ETF, which focuses on large capitalization international, non-North American companies. This ETF invests primarily in equity and equity-related securities of companies that are amongst the largest (by market capitalization) and most liquid non-North American based issuers on the Toronto Stock Exchange, the New York Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq Stock Market.
