Risk Management using Options

Currently I have an alg that through the framework filters down to 25 equities, creates insights, and computes portfolio construction. I am looking to use options on my equities as risk management and I am having trouble adding such options to a separate universe. I used the Option Universe Selection Model on GitHub as a template, however, I was wondering

1). Is it possible to have two separate universes using QuantConenct's framework?

2). If so, would it be advised to create separate universes( one for equities one for options )?

3). If I wanted to filter down my options( based on insights, portfolio construction, etc. that I compute off my equities) later in the framework, would it be possible to filter down the separate options universe?

Hi Jason,

We can add multiple universes to an algorithm by calling the `AddUniverseSelection` method multiple times in Initialize. Although by doing so, the alpha model will have to emit insights for both the equities and options. The portfolio construction and risk management models will need to be written to handle all these insights. In the Algorithm Framework, it is not possible to perform universe selection inside a risk management model.

Best,
