Risk Considerations

Equity Risk. An investment in a portfolio containing common stocks is subject to certain risks, such as an economic recession and the possible deterioration of either the financial condition of the issuers of the equity securities or the general condition of the stock market.

Foreign Securities Risk. An investment in securities of foreign issuers should be made with an understanding of the additional risks involved, such as currency fluctuations, political risk, withholding, the lack of adequate financial information, and exchange control restrictions impacting foreign issuers.

REITs Risk. An investment in a portfolio containing REIT securities is subject to additional risks including limited diversification. Companies involved in the real estate industry are subject to changes in the real estate market, vacancy rates and competition, volatile interest rates and economic recession.

Small-Cap and Mid-Cap Risk. An investment in a portfolio containing small-cap and mid-cap companies is subject to additional risks, as the share prices of small-cap companies and certain mid-cap companies are often more volatile than those of larger companies due to several factors, including limited trading volumes, products, financial resources, management inexperience and less publicly available information.

Volatility Risk. The value of the securities held by the trust may be subject to steep declines or increased volatility due to changes in performance or perception of the issuers.

All data used for the sector and style classification comparisons is from Bloomberg Finance L.P, which we believe to be reliable, but do not take responsibility for its accuracy.

The style and capitalization characteristics used to describe the stocks are designed to help you understand how they fit into your overall investment plan. Due to changes in the value of the stocks the characteristics may vary over time. In general, growth stocks have high relative price-to-book ratios while value stocks have low relative price-to-book ratios. In determining market capitalization characteristics, we analyze the market capitalizations of the 3,000 largest stocks in the U.S. (excluding foreign securities, ADRs, limited partnerships and regulated investment companies) on a monthly basis. Companies with market capitalizations among the largest 10% are considered Large-Cap securities, the next 20% are considered Mid-Cap securities and the remaining securities are considered Small-Cap securities.

Although the portfolio terminates in approximately one year, the strategy is long-term. Investors should consider their ability to pursue investing in successive portfolios, if available. There may be tax consequences unless units are purchased in an IRA or other qualified plan.

You should carefully consider the trust's investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses before investing. Contact your financial advisor or call First Trust Portfolios, L.P. at 1.800.621.1675 to request a prospectus, which contains this and other information about the trust. Read it carefully before you invest.
