Investment Objective/Strategy - First Trust Energy Income and Growth Fund (the "Fund") is a non-diversified, closed-end management investment company. The Fund's investment objective is to seek a high level of after-tax total return with an emphasis on current distributions paid to shareholders. The Fund pursues its objective by investing in cash-generating securities of energy companies, with a focus on investing in publicly-traded MLPs, related public entities in the energy sector and other public companies, which EIP believes offer opportunities for income and growth. Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest at least 85% of its managed assets in securities of energy companies, energy sector MLPs and MLP-related entities.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved. The Fund may not be appropriate for all investors.
