First Trust Investment Solutions L.P. (“FTIS”) is an investment advisor registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. FTIS is an affiliate of First Trust Portfolios L.P., a FINRA-registered broker-dealer, and First Trust Advisors L.P., a U.S. registered investment advisor, and is responsible for the day-to-day management of the SMAs. First Trust Portfolios L.P. is the marketing agent for the SMAs.

FTIS has entered into a contractual agreement with First Trust Portfolios L.P. (“First Trust”), to refer investment advisory services provided by FTIS. Since FTIS management fees are based upon a percentage of assets under management, the more assets under management, the higher fee income to FTIS. In addition, since First Trust is under common control with FTIS, First Trust will indirectly benefit from an increase in fees received by FTIS. Due to such compensation, First Trust has an incentive to recommend advisory services of FTIS, resulting in a material conflict of interest which should be considered when deciding to engage FTIS. First Trust will not be involved in the provision of services by FTIS. Please read FTIS’ Form ADV Part 2 for a description of services and fees offered.
