First Trust S-Network Future Vehicles & Technology ETF (CARZ)
Investment Objective/Strategy - The First Trust S-Network Future Vehicles & Technology ETF (the "Fund"), formerly First Trust NASDAQ Global Auto Index Fund, seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield (before the Fund's fees and expenses) of an equity index called the S-Network Electric & Future Vehicle Ecosystem Index (the "Index"). The Fund will normally invest at least 90% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in the common stocks and depository receipts that comprise the Index.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
  • The index begins with a universe of common stocks and depositary receipts of companies listed on a recognized global securities exchange, including U.S. dollar denominated and non-U.S. dollar denominated securities issued by U.S. and non-U.S. companies, including companies located in emerging market countries.
  • Securities must be issued by companies operating in the electric and future vehicle ecosystem:
    • Future vehicles companies – companies that have at least 50% of their assets in, or derive at least 50% of their revenues or profits from one of the following business segments: electric and autonomous vehicle manufacturing; electric and autonomous vehicle enabling technologies; electric and autonomous vehicle enabling materials; and the development and manufacture of future automotive technology and products.
    • Technology companies – companies that have at least 50% of their assets in, or derive at least 50% of their revenues or profits from the information technology sector.
  • To be eligible for the index, a security must meet the following criteria:
    • Minimum market capitalization of $500 million;
    • Three-month average daily trading value of at least $5 million;
    • Minimum float-adjusted market capitalization value of at least $100 million;
    • Minimum free float of 20% of shares outstanding.
  • All qualifying securities are selected for inclusion in the index and are weighted according to a float-adjusted market capitalization weighting methodology in which the maximum weight assigned to a single security is 4.5% and the minimum is 0.5% (with larger cap companies receiving higher weightings within the approximate range).
  • The index is reconstituted and rebalanced quarterly.
