RISK FACTORS

The First Trust Collective Investment Funds are not mutual funds and their units are not deposits of the Trustee, Hand Benefits & Trust Company, or the Sub-Advisor, and are not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other agency. The units are securities which have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 and the Fund is exempted from investment company registration under the Investment Company Act of 1940. Therefore, participating plans and their participants will not be entitled to the protections under these Acts. Management of the Trust, however, is generally subject to the fiduciary duty and prohibited transaction rules under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974.

As with any investment, you can lose money by investing in the Fund. Before investing you should consider carefully the following risks that you assume when you invest in the Fund. For more information regarding the following risks, please consult the Fund’s Information Statement.

The Fund is subject to market risk which is the risk that a particular security owned by the Fund or shares of the Fund in general may fall in value.

An investment in a fund containing securities of non-U.S. issuers is subject to additional risks, including currency fluctuations, political risks, withholding, the lack of adequate financial information, and exchange control restrictions impacting non-U.S. issuers.

Changes in currency exchange rates and the relative value of non-U.S. currencies may affect the value of the Fund's investments and the value of the Fund's shares.

The Fund invests in small and/or mid capitalization companies. Such companies may experience greater price volatility than larger, more established companies.
