Underlying Securities information represented above is as of 12/17/2014 but will vary with future fluctuations in the market.

An investment in an equity portfolio should be made with an understanding of the risks associated with an investment in common stocks including the risk that the financial condition of the issuers of the equities or the general condition of the stock market may worsen.

A portfolio which is concentrated in an individual sector is subject to additional risks, including limited diversification.

Closed-end funds are subject to various risks, including management's ability to meet the fund's investment objective, and to manage the fund's portfolio when the underlying securities are redeemed or sold, during periods of market turmoil and as investors' perceptions regarding the funds or their underlying investments change. Unlike open-end funds, which trade at prices based on a current determination of the fund's net asset value, closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value in the secondary market. Certain closed-end funds may employ the use of leverage which increases the volatility of such funds.

Risks associated with investing in foreign securities may be more pronounced in emerging markets where the securities markets are substantially smaller, less liquid, less regulated and more volatile than the U.S. and developed foreign markets.

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.

Preferred stocks are equity securities of the issuing company which pay income in the form of dividends. Preferred stocks are typically subordinated to bonds and other debt instruments in a company�s capital structure, and therefore will be subject to greater credit risk than those debt instruments.

An investment in a portfolio containing REIT securities is subject to additional risks, as 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.

An investment in a portfolio containing small-cap companies is subject to additional risks, as the share prices of small-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.

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.

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.

This product information does not constitute an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy securities in any state to any person to whom it is not lawful to make such an offer. Sales of any of these securities must include prospectus delivery and the services of a retail broker/dealer duly licensed in the appropriate states.

Not FDIC Insured, Not Bank Guaranteed and May Lose Value.
