The JPMorgan Equity Premium Income ETF, also known as JEPI, is an investment fund that invests in low-volatility stocks and sells covered call options. JEPI was launched in mid-2020 and has since amassed over $3.5 billion in assets. The fund charges a modest expense ratio of 0.35%. Here's what it means for dividend investors: JEPI holds stocks with low volatility and pays a high monthly dividend.

The JEPI is a dividend fund that invests in equity securities. It allocates eighty percent of its assets to equity securities and twenty percent to ELNs, which are hybrids of S&P 500 Index with written call options. These securities collect option premiums and produce a recurring income stream. Investors who purchase JEPI shares receive monthly distributions. However, there is no downside protection from covered calls, so you should consider this risk before purchasing any securities.

About JEPI Stock ETF

If you've been interested in investing in the S&P 500 index, you may have heard of the JEPI stock ETF. The fund's goal is to provide current income, while retaining the opportunity for capital appreciation. The JEPI uses various valuation metrics and writes call options on stocks to generate high yields. The fund charges 0.35% in fees and charges. To find out more, read about the JEPI's dividend strategy.

JEPI is more popular and diversified than DIVO, which has almost six times the AUM. JEPI also has a lower fee (0.35% vs. 0.55%). It also incorporates ESG criteria and is more popular overall. Divo's covered calls aren't good for protecting the downside, so make sure you choose the JEPI. It's a great way to hedge against market uncertainties and generate a steady stream of income.

Is JEPI a good long term investment?
