No, I don't want to do this myself.

The firm would do it on my behalf.

They would use the asset value of my BH position as collateral to execute the Iron Condor strategy on S&P futures to juice the return.

Collateral could take many forms. For me, it would be BH stock. For others, as I understand, it could be any asset that has discernible value. For example, someone who owns an asset that is a collectible with discernible value (collectible gold coins, for example), could also offer that up for this strategy.

It's a way to earn a small-ish return/cash on an asset that otherwise doesn't pay an effective cash return/dividend on a monthly or quarterly basis.
