There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
You should consider a fund's investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses carefully before investing. Contact First Trust Portfolios L.P. at 1-800-621-1675 or visit www.ftportfolios.com to obtain a prospectus or summary prospectus which contains this and other information about a fund. The prospectus or summary prospectus should be read carefully before investing.
The fund lists and principally trades its shares on The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC.
The fund’s return may not match the return of the NASDAQ Multi-Asset Diversified Income Index. The fund may not be fully invested at times.
Securities held by the fund will generally not be bought or sold in response to market fluctuations.
Investors buying or selling fund shares on the secondary market may incur customary brokerage commissions. Market prices may differ to
some degree from the net asset value of the shares. Investors who sell fund shares may receive less than the share’s net asset value. Shares
may be sold throughout the day on the exchange through any brokerage account. However, unlike mutual funds, shares may only be
redeemed directly from the fund by authorized participants, in very large creation/redemption units.
The fund's shares will change in value, and you could lose money by investing in the fund. One of the principal risks of investing in the fund is
market risk. Market risk is the risk that a particular security owned by the fund, fund shares or securities in general may fall in value.
The fund may invest in small capitalization and mid capitalization companies. Such companies may experience greater price volatility than
larger, more established companies.
REITs are subject to certain risks, including changes in the real estate market, vacancy rates and competition, volatile interest rates and
MLPs are subject to certain risks, including price and supply fluctuations caused by international politics, energy conservation, taxes, price
controls, and other regulatory policies of various governments.
Preferred securities combine some of the characteristics of both common stocks and bonds. Preferred securities are typically subordinated to
bonds and other debt instruments in a company's capital structure, in terms of priority to corporate income, and therefore will be subject to
greater credit risk than those debt instruments. Preferred securities are also subject to credit risk, interest rate risk and income risk.
High-yield securities are subject to numerous risks, including higher interest rates, economic recession, deterioration of the junk bond market,
possible downgrades and defaults of interest and/or principal. High-yield security prices tend to fluctuate more than higher rated securities and
are affected by short-term credit developments to a greater degree.
An investment in a fund containing equity securities of foreign issuers is subject to additional risks, including currency fluctuations, political
risks, withholding, the lack of adequate financial information, and exchange control restrictions impacting foreign issuers. These risks may be
heightened for securities of companies located in, or with significant operations in, emerging market countries.
The fund invests in securities of non-U.S. issuers. Such securities are subject to higher volatility than securities of domestic issuers. Because
the fund's NAV is determined on the basis of U.S. dollars and the fund invests in foreign securities, you may lose money if the local currency of
a foreign market depreciates against the U.S. dollar. Additionally, the fund invests in depositary receipts, usually in the form of ADRs or GDRs.
Investment in ADRs or GDRs may be less liquid than the underlying shares in their primary trading market.
