What is VEGA?
The AdvisorShares STAR Global Buy-Write ETF (VEGA) seeks consistent repeatable returns across all market cycles. VEGA is subadvised by Partnervest Advisory Services, LLC (Portfolio Manager).

VEGA employs a Buy-Write or Covered Call overlay for their global allocation strategy using Exchange Traded Products (ETPs).
