First Trust Variable Insurance Trust 

First Trust Variable Insurance Trust

First Trust/Dow Jones Dividend & Income Allocation Portfolio
The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal market conditions, approximately 40-60% of its net assets in equity securities and approximately 40-60% of its net assets in fixed income securities at the time of purchase. The equity portion of the portfolio will be derived from a quantitative process that seeks to provide total return through investing generally in dividend paying stocks included in the Dow Jones U.S. Total Stock Market IndexSM. First Trust reserves the right to over-weight, under-weight or exclude certain securities from the Fund that would otherwise be selected pursuant to the quantitative process in certain instances.

The fixed income component seeks to provide income and preserve capital through investing in a diversified investment grade bond portfolio. Investment grade bonds are those bonds rated "BBB-" or higher by Standard & Poor's Financial Services LLC or Fitch, Inc. or "Baa3" or higher by Moody's Investors Service, Inc. at the time of purchase. Under normal market conditions, at the time of purchase approximately 80% of the net assets of the Fund allocated to corporate bonds will be invested in: investment grade bonds included in the Dow Jones® Corporate Bond Index and other investment grade bonds of issuers whose securities are included in the Bond Index; and investment grade bonds of issuers included in the Dow Jones® Industrial Index. The Fund may also invest in U.S. government and agency securities, including mortgage-backed securities. The Fund may, at certain times, also hold exchange-traded funds that invest in investment grade corporate bonds and U.S. government bonds in lieu of investing directly in bonds.
